    :Confused: Why would a dealer in Clwyd be selling through a brokerage designed for private sellers and in Congleton? :Confused:

    Have you got a link to the van you're interested in?

    Ok, the Frankia: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120997251644?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_sadis%3D200%26_ipg%3D50%26LH_SALE_CURRENCY%3D0%26_sacat%3D0%26_samihi%3D%26_samilow%3D%26_fpos%3D%26_ftrt%3D901%26_oexkw%3D%26_udhi%3D%26_sabdhi%3D%26_ftrv%3D1%26_udlo%3D%26_sabdlo%3D%26_adv%3D1%26_sop%3D12%26_dmd%3D1%26_okw%3D%26_nkw%3D120997251644%26_rdc%3D1

    There are certainly other vans around it and reflected in the radiator chrome. Can't pick up on a Clwyd clue tho'. :Smile:

    Apparently it's fitted with a washing machine and tumble dryer - that must eat into the payload a bit! :Eeek:

    The say what they are and thats Brokers, so they advertise and do the internet selling and take a percentage, they usually have dozens of vans on throughout the country.

    I love a good puzzle but can't track it down to a dealer. Just wondering if maybe it's a storage location and they fish them out into the car park for photographs?

    This outfit has had more names than I've can remember.
    Before Motorhome Depot they were Buy My Motorhome & before that they were some auction type place but the name escapes me.
    They have offices in/near Nottingham not far from the old Oak Tree site.
    They selll vans on a Brokerage basis.
    Having said that a friend of ours bought a Rapido from them & it all turned out OK.

    The address they give in Congleton is an accommodation address. Buyer beware, office rented short term :RollEyes:.
