    One man's "cheap" is another man's "Bloody hell... I wouldn't pay that for that!"... ;)

    Could it be dodgy , surely he wouldn't have it on eBay, if you look at others like it , it's at least 5 grand cheaper, and he's open to offers at that!

    Plus he's been an e-bay member for 13 years with 500+ feedback , unless its a hacked e-bay account as well i'd doubt its dodgy , i thought roller team MH's seemed cheap compared to others when i was looking for a MH, but none of the layouts suited me.

    I think it's likely to be ex-hire, also looks very 'white' so maybe has some history to it....

    2009 and 4 owners plus very low mileage ..... it would need a very careful check I think.

    Low mileage isn't that uncommon, ours was 5.5 years old when we bought it last Feb' with just 1 previous owner & 6380 recorded genuine miles on the clock & a full hab' / chassis service / M.O.T. history as provenance.

    4 owners would be more of a concern I concur.

    Low mileage not a concern if there is a reason for it - but I once had a company car with very low mileage - 'cos it was more often in the garage being fixed than on the road. Makes me nervous when there are several owners and low mileage.

    Buffy was 3 when we bought her and had 9,000 miles. We put a further 11,000 on in 2 years. Jemima is two weeks old and has 800 miles on already :)

    Think our MH's previous owners were fastidious or OCD or something as we had literally piles of documentation including every diesel receipt, all in date order - seems they used it quite often but never went far from home, the oven & grill were unused :eek: & it literally was as good as new :)

    They traded it in for a PVC as it was too big for them.

    I cant believe how many think because its sensibly priced its dodgy ! Don't let preconceptions stand in the way of a bargain !

    Wasn't pushing it or anything just came on it when looking for a tranny pickup, and it looked cheap for whatever reason, the bloke that's selling it says he's only had it three months and not used it, so that's one owner accounted for, but as someone mentioned the front does look a bit new, did he buy it with damage and just done it up for sale ????
    If it is genuine it's a bargain for someone especially if you could knock another couple of grand off it.;)

    Is that a thunder at catamaran logo on the side.

    My front end when polished looks whiter than the body for some reason.
    It's a Fiart not a Fraud.

    More than I got for my Chausson when it went. Looks about right to me for price.
