    We have a 2003 2l Fiat JTD, was a bit slow, re-flashed and now it's fine. £250(ish).

    Hymer, good reputation.

    Hello and welcome to fun, don't be rushed look around ask questions and have a good idea of what you want from your motorhome before you buy.

    Are you hopeing to be away for a couple of months at a time

    Is it going to be more week ends

    Will you want to carry bikes or a scooter

    Is there room for a barbie / chairs and a table

    Do you want a drop down bed / 2 single beds / or a permantly made up bed.

    Does it need to be under 6 meters or have you plenty of storage.

    Do you want a full cooker or happy with just a hob.

    Just a few of the many questions to ask your selves and on Motorhome Fun just ask away and someone will soon be along with a awnser.

    One of the best investements is the £10 sub for the forum you are only a question away from friends. :welcomefunster:

    Can help you with your thoughts but mine went as follows....

    do I want EUROPEAN (NORMAL TYPE) van ,,can I live in it as Im old. Is there enough room to be fulltiming for a year. As I want to explore...

    Ah so you cant have space in a van AND tour down iccle lanes...

    so I decided big rv to accom friends and family visitors whilst affording me the luxury I need for a long stay and tow an iccle vehicle for exploring.

    If I was weekending and one or two weeks summer holiday in it only ..then my plan would have been for a european one with U shaped lounge...space and bed and accom in three locations if you get one with an overhead bunk.

    So its horses for courses....decide how often you will use it and that may lead you into the answer.

    Look on the bright side..whatever decision you make its gonna be the wrong one...but never admit it on a camp site..always big up ya m/home :Rofl1:

    Hi Jeff & Chris and :welcome:

    decisions decisions.... will be amazing if you get it right first time, as long as it doesn't turn out to be a costly mistake, then it can be enjoyable. My advise is really take your time, and make a good list of the things you want out of a MH.

    My last Caravan had a fixed bed and I loved it. when we bought our MH last year one of my conditions was a FB, we looked for months, our ideal ultimate one was out of our budget so we decided to compromise and FB went off my wish list along with a couple of other things. I do like what we have, but by god i wished i'd held out and waited for the one i really wanted! I can not comment on Hymmer apart from the fact Jeff (hubby) really likes them. Personally not my bag. So back to saving me coppers for my ultimate. Which by the way will be an Auto trail Chieftan.

    Good luck in your search

    Andy & Jeff
