    Good morning everyone! Questions questions questions!

    OK, As all newbies start 'I'm looking to buy my first motorhome' I have been trying to find 'It' for goodness knows how long and now ...as I finally paid off my house I have money:BigGrin:
    It has to be 4 berth with travelling seats for children (ideally 3 point) diesel, reliable with all the usual creature comforts. Ive looked at VW T4 trident conversions, Komet conversions and more recently Transit Leisuredrive conversions ..all much of a muchness? ANY advice and pointers would be fantastic. My budget is 9k which puts me in the J K L M reg area.

    Motorhomes that are full of holes and have transported livestock are easy to find!:cry:
    Thanks

    Try Hymer 544, or Pilote

    Both better suited to a family of 4

    Plenty on eBay in your price range

    You need an onboard loo with or without kids. No fun going to site loos in the middle of the night.:Smile: BUSBY.

    They aren't necessarily bigger - the Hymer and Pilote ones I mentioned are less than 6 metres, about the same as a long wheelbase Transit
