    I'm looking for a Ci motorhome with a similar spec to Autosleeper Pollensa, Gatcombe or Talisman.
    Particularly
    3-4 berth
    Forward facing belted passenger seats but not at rear.
    At least one large bed (min 4'6)
    less than 6m length
    Vintage about 2000 onwards.
    Any leads or pointers welcome
    Budget up to about £25000
    Thanks,
    K

    Having had a Ci and thoroughly enjoyed it I can reccomend them for value for money.

    I know the CI range quite well and with that money you should not settle for anything less than a 04 model.

    Be more specific in what your layout requirements are and I will point you to th eexact one.

    Do you want a fixed bed?
    Bunks for kids?
    do you mind sleeping in an overcab?
    do you want a rear lounge and a diner?

    The 181 is a good van in your range. It has a diner and a rear lounge that makes in to beds,,, 6 berth but you would not want 6 in it. Not sure of the length but probably around the 6m mark.

    The 181 looks nice. Might put that on my shortlist as well.

    Thanks for tips and leads. I was a bit worried I had been too specific.
    But since you asked this is pretty much the full spec.

    Side seats (forward facing and rear kitchen/toilet
    4 berth
    Diesel or petrol
    Base vehicle
    3-4 berth
    Forward facing belted passenger seats(at least one extra prefer 2)
    Big wide (min 4' 6) double bed
    Not too long, less than around 6m
    £20k-25k price bracket for 2000-2003 vintage

    Other niceties
    20k-50k mileage (would be nice)
    Ford engine 2.4 Litre min
    Prefer vans a few years old with a couple of happy owners. That way most of the "quality control" checks have been made.
    Thanks again
