    It looks a nice van to me:thumb:

    Are you sure you want the fixed bed though? Great for sleeping but for us the limit on personal space when you are awake ( and it's raining) was too much. I in particular hated it on the last van.

    Good luck:thumb:

    We went there a few weeks ago to see a '93 Hymer for £10k......Never seen such a load of crap that they seem to have there. They are the company that others tend to sell their 'unwanted' vans to. Check them out first, before you travel.

    22,000 miles in 10 years..

    Check tyres and cambelt change.. Although low mileage both these are also time critical and should have been changed, in fact almost coming up to being done again..

    Yes I know what you mean however there is a good reason for this, one of us snores & I mean snores & it int' me & I'm fed up of it :RollEyes: & I'm going to get into loads of trouble now!!!
    Also I think the space is compensated for with the decent sized garage underneath so although I've baulked against a fixed bed before now I like the layout & size of the lounge area on this one so aren't too concerned.

    re Hymer

    Looks good.
    I like fixed beds, as can't be bothered to make it up every night.
    Some say its a waste of space, but to me, it has large storage underneath,
    so horses for courses as they say :BigGrin:

    The shower looks like it has a wall that pivots, so you get a sqaure shower cubicle, rather that a wet room room.
    Just make sure shower/loo is big enought for you to use.
    Can you pick the soap up if you drop it? :Rofl1:

    I have heard of somone having to leave the loo door open, as not enough room for his legs!
    Also make sure ascending up to the bed is no problem for you both.
    Also, with a drop down bed at the front, some couples have a double bed each!

    Build quality should be fine, but always get any van checked out.

    As for price, i'm sure somone will advise.

    Good luck, S

    Thanks for that, they have mentioned in their advert that they won't answer E mails, phone calls only which is a bit odd & its difficult to tell the condition off of photos so I make further checks. They do have 100% feedback however.

    Jez, I can't sit here all day - out the door to see us turn over the Swans and take our rightful place above the two Manchesters and back into a Euro spot :Eeek:
    Love the comment I heard about how David Moyes had spent 11 years trying to get Everton above United and had finally succeeded this season :Laughing:

    Ah Ah you go for it, have a great afternoon at St Mary's & I'll be watching the score. You'll only be a point behind Arsenal if West Brom do 'em later on as well. :thumb:

    If you are prepared to go over to Preston why not arrange to see the ones Peter Hambilton has at Hymer Direct http://www.friendlyhippo.co.uk/hymerdirect/.
    Peter trained at Hymer and was a technician at Madisons,before Brownhills took them over,what he doesn't know about Hymers isn't worth knowing.

    This mh seems a little expensive to my way of thinking. When buying a mh of this age any warranty given by the dealer would be suspect so why pay the extra.
    We have a mh with a similar layout as this hymer and for the same reason you like it. I have solved the space problem by removing the fixed table and using a folding table which doubles nicely when eating al fresco.

    I saw this N+B which is the same as mine and has some useful extras, like an oven and solar panel on roof - it may be worth a look and remember you can bargain this one down more easily.

    If you decide to look at it PM me and I will tell you what to look out for.

    Good for lying on and watching tv in the rain though. Personally, I would hate to keep making a bed up every night, thats why we bought a fixed bed model. Still plenty of room to use in the rest of the van if you get the right layout.

    I can make my rear bed up in under 5 mins and as such have so much more van to use,if its raining, as you say,we can leave it up ,and as a rear lounge bed can fit all 4 of us plus dog for a lazy day watching DVDs .
    Try doing that on an island bed!
    If of course your in a hurry and you can't afford the 5 mins it takes to make up the rear bed ,perhaps you're getting too old and should buy a static!
    You can tell when your getting too old,simply pull down your khaki shorts to your sandals (just below your socks) .Then when you feel a fart coming on , ask your other arf to look out for dust :Rofl1:
