    I love Eura's. However that is on Ebay.com. I would pay a visit before parting with any money.

    Morning Peter

    I have a friend who had the same motorhome but with the small engine.
    He loved it the only problem was the engine too small.
    Not a problem with this one 2.8.
    My Polish friend tells me this is a great engine for a Motorhome.
    We never had problems with the 2.8 in our distribution vans.

    Best of luck

    Mel

    Only 50 miles, from Wakefield, so not too far for a proper look and possibly some bargaining.

    Not my taste as I don't need 6 beds and cannot stand dinettes as they are neither a decent table, seat or bed but I really do like the idea of 2 cab doors as well as the camper door. I do miss the cab door that our old Hymer 694 had as the only way in, and out, of the TREK is as shown in the avatar.

    Eura's have good reputation for built quality, they are fully winterized, have a double floor.. no structural wood, so none to rot.. ,
    I like them a lot and are on my list of potential purchases.. not this particular model.. beautiful as it is, too big for us..
    Not many in the UK .. and there is only one agent .. Oaktree Motorhomes.

    Caravan Depot is a broker.. know nothing about them..

    Bob&Barb had one very similar until recently. Bob loved it.
    I recall it did have some problems but don't all vans?
    That sealing strip across the roof at the back let water in that ran down the inside through the bedroom cupboards and through into the garage. There was a problem with an electrical circuit that I found for him in that if holding the van on the footbrake and using electric windows at the same time (toll booth) it blew the fuse. Looks very nice (y)

    Habitation electrics are CBE

    Good make. It all depends on the layout, condition, and price.

    They are certainly solidly built vans, can't think of many better tbh. The pre 2003 models benefit from push button locks on the cabinets, imo better than the handles on later vans.
    Don't know your budget, will say that the one you've shown is only slightly cheaper than say a 2004 van - something to think about.

    They're also quite big and have a limited market, normally a few up for sale too, I'm certain you can negotiate a good deal if you find the right one.
    Great choice though (y)

    It's not on the cards yet but we will be changing van at some point this year or early next
    We are in big changes now with looking at downsizing house and sorting out pensions so this just very much in the early ideas stage
    I just wanted some views on quality of this manufactor as I have not seen inside one
    My first choice would be a RMB if I could find one under 25 K with the right layout for us

    Euramobil have a very good reputation, particularly for the 2000-2006 age range. This looks like a very nice motorhome with bags of space. Eura was a make we considered seriously before choosing a Hymer.
    Hard to think that Euramobil is part of the same group that builds Auto Trail (Trigano) - no comparison in my opinion - but that is only based on looking them over at dealers and shows.

    2001 model, check the tyres and engine number to find out which year the chassis was supplied.

    Went to look at a 2003 van recently and the tyres were all dated 2001, so they were 15 years old and so was the engine/chassis.

    Didn't the early 2.8's have a problem with 5th gear?

    Paul.

    Seems a little bit pricey for the age and it won't have a turbo either so with such a large vehicle you'd have to be prepared to travel at a sedate pace.

    One thing to be careful about is damp ... a member on here use to have a Euromobile coachbuilt (2007 model possibly?) and when he came to trade it in at around 3 years old or so it had quite a bit of damp in it ... be careful.

    Generally good vans, I notice it is a broker that is selling it. Does seem a bit pricey, there is a 2007 for sale in Germany for 28K & 1999 one for 13k.

    They are very well built, I think it will be turbo. make sure you get the cam belt done ASAP just for age. the price is OK if its good. BUT against religion to pay asking price. If you find it under powered get it chipped not a bolt on. it made a big difference on our B774 when we had that. (y)

    Not necessarily, they were still producing and selling MHs with the 2.8 non turbo back then ... I know cause we had one!
