    We are currently selling our vw splitscreen and eriba puck and looking to buy our first motorhome. We have been looking around dealers for weeks now and have seen many layouts we like but we are not sure what to buy.

    We have been looking at the laika 2003/2004, autotrail and the roller team 2008/2009 . We have a budget of around 25k and we are not sure if we should buy as new as we can or if we should invest in a better quality make. We are also open to any other suggestion. Our main priority is that it must have 4 berth minimum, 4 x 3 point seat belts as we have 2 small children and we are flexible about berths fixed bed, bunks or rear lounge.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Hi Bluedog
    I have a Laika and would recommend them and at that price you should be able to get a nice four berth, have a look at Ebay that will give you a good indication.
    Just type in Laika motorhomes or whatever you fancy. Good luck and welcome to FUN.

    We were looking at laikas when we first got into hire - had it been for us, that is what we would of had - but we had to think of other people!

    A nice choice! You will wait not much longer than parts for UK vehicles. Iveco base is apparently better.

    Two things I would look out for no matter what else such as layout that may be important would be 1) bed size - ensure you have room for growth, some of the dinette beds are ok for small children but not growing teenagers, and 2) the actual weight available for what you need to carry, some have quite small allowances for your needs. You will enjoy the experiences.
