    I think there may be one for sale, but I think it is in France at the moment gathering evidence of Gas attacks!!!:Wink:

    Yes very good

    Yes, very good all of you..... Now there is a 23'9" a 28' and a 30' RV for sale.. We have all sizes to suit all... I suspect a 32' could be found if you ask Toffs.G.. He has a mini Winni that is 32' for sale as well.

    how cutting bob only talked to them he did not gas them :Eeek:
    there in nothing wrong with a small RV mine is only 27ft has every thing including the sink and double bed
    is of much better quality of many more expensive euro vans

    if you have to look at the cost of running one you should not buy one you can not afford it
    as with any motor there are up costs if you drive them
    my rv is easy to drive and far more comfortable than most euro vans

    so i say if you want a motor home do look at the RV RANGE :thumb:

    I am used to it.



    I am used to it... make a sensible post, report an issue or possible issue and you get the usual suspect ... doubting thomas's .. AT least I spoke the to man it happened to.. not reporting it 5th handed or a friend of a friend. I cannot say if it is true or not.

    For myself.. having an RV with dead locks like Geo... we have two of them on the Winnebago habitation door.. both are used at night. We also have the VanBitz Strike back alarm and we set the night mode and that also covers the trailer via the extension loop. Yes we have two cab doors, but we have an external screen on that would be a real pain to get through... I am not an easy target... they go for the one's that are.

    Going back to Shiffy's post of the RV ... that is not so unusual.. I have been saying for ever, well 5,000 appox posts that my RV does 14 MPG... which given the 6.8ltr V10 engine and the 5 tons it is not bad.

    The fact I am selling mine is not jumping ship.... I have owned RV's now for over 25 years.. my first A class came from Dudley's (main Winnebago Agent) well over 20 years ago. I have had all sorts of yanks at various times... only eve had one euro box.. a Glendale... would never go back to european after what you get in an RV... My next RV is a toy hauler.. slightly longer.. not a lot... But not jumping ship for sure. If I have my way there will be a couple of weeks between one going and the other arriving.

    I doubt it

    I doubt it, there is always a good 40 on ebay at anytime.... the others will not affect my asking price. In no rush... if it goes soon fine, if not then fine, will continue to use it until it does go.

    Often over looked by Rv bashers, and I do like my mathamatical arguments but punch holes in this one if you will

    Bobs all singing and dancing go anywhere Rv is up for sale at circa 35k-40k if memory serves:thumb:

    To get anywhere close to the fixtures and fittings, cos you wont get near the space or luxury.
    You will have to spend close to 80k for a Eurobox equivalent

    that leaves the Rv buyer about 40 K to spend on fuel:Wink:

    After another 5 years Bobs Rv will sell at say 27k a loss of aprox 10k add to that 10-15 k for five years of fuel total cost 20-25k =5k a year all in :thumb:

    The 80 K Euro box will lose 25k in the first year:Eeek: and he still has to finance his next 4 years fuel.
    Resale value after 5 years circa 45-50k 5 years fuel at half the RVs is 5k- 7500 -granted but
    Total over 5 years loss of 40K =8k per year


    To those willing to just look outside the box never mind think outside the box its a no brainer:Doh:
    Its cheaper to own and run a RV simples
