    Hi we have owned one of these "C" reg for the past 4 years very pleased with it , we get about 22 to 25 mpg , it is not a fast vehicle best chugging along at around 55 mph and slowing down on hills. as with all motorhomes check for damp ,appliances working ok

    Rust not normally a problem on chassis built like a battleship but cab will show signs of rust look into airintake for cab heater grills below windscreen water collects in here common fault,major problem to repair as you cannot get inside,
    if no heater fan it rusts up (replacement abt £100 from europarts)
    bottom of cab doors tend to rust and cab wings

    Engine is will do starship mileage if looked after

    Mot mine just passed without any advisorys at all very pleased with that

    Traveled most parts of Europe with mine very warm in winter was in France in early February only problem water froze!

    any more help give us a PM :thumb:

    Regards Charlie

    Hi Charlie
    Thanks for all that, the guy did say he had replaced the heater fan so I guess that's one job I don't have to worry about:thumb:, although how do you stop it all happening again. What do you think on the price, having a google about it seems pretty cheap to me!
