    Hi All

    We've only been without a m/home for about 8 weeks and its driven us nuts:Eeek:

    We just recieved the money from USA for the sale of our RV got the full asking price.:BigGrin:
    We had intended to buy a S820 Hymer we'd fell in love with but the guy sold it a few weeks ago:cry::cry: Can't find another within our budget and as we have plans for some of the money we will not spend a penny more than we allocated.

    Anyway we've found an exceptionally nice Hymer B694 within our budget and loaded with extras, we've bid on it and it looks as if we've got it.

    Are there any inherent faults with this model I should look for????
    Don't know much about Euro vans as the last 4 vans have been Rvs and the last Euro van was 18 years ago.

    Thanks in advance:thumb:

    As a VERY happy 655 - 2.8jtd owner for 3 years with absolutely zero faults. This is our first Hymer and I wouldn't want anything else, even when the people call it ugly! If the layouts right, good nick, well serviced etc. you can't go wrong :Smile:

    I don't think you could do better. A 1200GS and a Hymer.
    A match made in heaven.
    (Maybe a Vespa tucked away somewhere as well!):Rofl1:
    Good luck:thumb:

    Oi, we'll have less of the "anorak" matey. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Rory knows very well, my views on his decision to go for a Hymer. But like anything else, it needs a good going over with attention to detail first, and a quality damp test....................just in case any possible "undeclared" damage has compromised a seal or joint.

    Rory, I hope that it is what you and Jan are looking for in quality and spec.

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    Hi Jock
    As you know we really fell in love with the s820 but it was'nt to be so "thats life" fact is we're using the money for other things so a S820 is out of our budget at the moment. We've discovered very quickly that we can't live without our m/home, a weekend in a hotel in Brighton last week convinced us we need to buy another

    I was'nt sure about the B694 but Jan really liked it so thats half the battle as I've wanted to downsize for a long time, as much as I love RVs I'm afraid they don't really suit our type of travelling anymore.
