    Thanks for the replies Bazfergy.
    The ad is a little vague in some respects. described as a 2+1 berth, the two singles at the back are obvious and just what I want but it doesnt say where the third bed is and the pictures dont make it clear if it is over the cab or part of the dinette. it would also be nice to know how long it is.
    Does look nice though doesn't it :Smile: long way to go see it if it isnt what I want though and owner doesn't seem to be a regular poster.

    Hi again graham when they say 2+1 i think they mean you can have 2 singles or 1 large double and the overall length will be about 23 feet hope this helps happy hunting hope you get 1 soon:thumb:

    The dinette will make up a single bed, no overcab. My Burstner is 6.8 metres long and looking at the photo's I would imagine the C.I. would be about the same length.

    The Merc 316 is a great base vehicle and I wouldn't think any of the manufactures would build a shabby van on such an expensive base.

    Good point.
    This does look interesting. I left a comment for the seller but he doesn't seem to have visited the site since he placed the ad. He has only made 4 posts so may have just joined to post it. I would like to have seen more pics though :Smile:

    I have been googleing the title but cannot find anything. Does anyone know what the actual make and model of this van is ?

    The Merc Sprinter is a great motor, it runs forever and will happily sit at nearly 100mph on the motorway all day (not that you'd want to go that fast in a MH:Rofl1:)

    Google C I Cipro it comes up with quite a few leads
    I believe that C I is an abreviation fo Caravans International the manufacturers name.
    Hope this helps, it looks like a nice van.

    I think I should point out that I'm no speeder! I work for the emergency services so it is allowed to drive at that speed (when required) :thumb:

    I did hear they are good for 110 MPH. Maybe the tyres aren't though.:Sad:
