    A bit misleading to say the least- cheapest rate is over £78 per day!, might be worth asking them or reporting to Ebay.
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    Have you ever tried reporting an advert to Ebay. You can only pick from a drop down list and there never seems to be a choice to fit the complaint.

    Seems extremely dodgy to me! When rental prices are far below what the reputable companies charge one starts to smell a rat!

    I would want to check them out before I parted with any cash. Just imagine turning up for your hols all paid up and it doesn't exist? Scary.:eek:

    I assume there's an extremely good reason why it has different number plates at the front and back ?
    Best guess - one heck of a "cut and shut" ! :xrofl:

    You could say that.
    But even a brain dead scam magnet wouldn't expect a motorhome for £45

    Have just looked again on Ebay and there are several Motorhomes offered for hire and advertised price is around £50. I admit to having a glass on wine or two but I am confused to what these adverts are about. They seem to be from established hire companies.

    Reply from lister:

    The vehicle has had a cherished number put on it and the rear was reshot recently has we had the bike rack fitted.

    We did a £45 per day offer for December but this has now ended.

    Thanks

    And a "too fast" response to my query.

    Anyway it has been reported.

    Don't panic Mr Mannering - pf fulfillment offers a mailshot service for companies. Nothing suspicious except for their choice of name!
