    I have the opportunity of buying another RMB, a 760 on the 7500kg chassis, so will give me a higher train weight to tow the bigger trailer required for the car and scooters. Anyone seriously interested in the purchase of a serious 670 Silver Star that is fully loaded by the factory with every extra available, with comprehensive service records including original bill of sale, this is it. My RMB is not a cheap van, but if you want the finest quality money can buy and a van that will last more than a lifetime send me a PM. This van was commissioned from the factory as a 2 berth, with more than enough storage for a couple on long term tours or full timing. Interior solid woodwork is in grey ash and is not dark, as some older MHs are. The interior soft furnishings were professionally recovered in pale blue half leather to complement the light woodwork and the floor recovered in matching Rhinofloor at a cost of 2K last year. Those that may be interested will know the van and also know the value of it so please only genuine enquiries. As always, circumstances change, more-so with me than many, so be quick before I send it back to Germany for sale.

New front tyres and good rears with good spare. Fixed bed over rear full size 2 door garage, accessible from both sides. 12 volt roof mounted air-conditioning over bedroom with bedroom roof vent. 1500 watt pure sine wave inverter factory fitted and usable by all sockets. 3 X 110 amp leisure batteries charged by mains battery charger or 250 Watts of solar panels, or wind generator. All 12 volt wiring through a shunt and MTC magnatronic display, giving constant display of state of charge. LED bulbs throughout. Cramer ceramic hob, ducted through wardrobe onto roof, so no naked flame in van. Nature pure drinking water tap fitted with new cartridge. Large LPG tank and also gas locker with 2 X 11 Kg bottles with Truma auto switchover and internal 12 switch to switch gas off. Truma gas blown air heating and Eberspacher diesel heater. Truma gas boiler with new mains element. Many 12 volt Hella sockets and mains sockets throughout. Newer Dometic AES fridge freezer. Oyster automatic satellite dish with 17 inch TV DVD player with memory stick facility, works on both 12 volt and mains. Separate shower and toilet with ceramic sink. All taps are stainless steel. Huge freshwater tank, black toilet tank and waste water tanks. AEG microwave oven, also works from the inverter. Towbar and electrics. Stainless steel wheel trims. Extractor fans in bathroom and kitchen through roof vents. All windows double glazed including cab. Roll down windscreen blind. All cupboard catches, locks and lights in solid brass or stainless steel. Electric step. Omnistore awning. Yale locks on habitation door and double Yale locks on garage doors. The body shell is a one piece monocoque fibreglass shell, so leaks are not possible. Even the floor is fibreglass. All woodwork is in solid light ash, the upholstery is in half pale blue leather with matching cloth trim. The floor has been recovered in matching Rhinofloor. The cab and dash area was re carpeted professionally last year at the same time new matching curtains were made throughout. The quality of this van has never been matched before or since and will still be here when the owner is pushing up daisies. They were not mass produced, but bespoke built to the individual customers requirements.

    Many thanks for the interest, there has been quite a lot :thumb:. Here is a few outside photos and I will post inside ones later. I forgot to mention this van is fully winterised to German standards. All tanks are heated as is the garage. The road legal buggy is also for sale complete with trailer.

    You have done a great job on that Tranny pal, but it unfortunately is not heavy enough for my new project. Am moving back into the heavyweight class (in more ways than one) :Doh:. Get it converted to cash quick, I can handle cash better :BigGrin:.

    These things dont come up for sale very often Terry, as there were not that many made due to the high price when new. When they do, its difficult to find one as well sorted as this one, especially with the light coloured wood. Those that own them hardly ever part with them because what can they be replaced with in todays market. Its only when owners stop travelling or from an estate sale that they can be purchased. I have the original order, build sheet and invoice, all in a ring back folder. The price when new was 170630DM plus another 19449 in factory fitted extras. I sometimes wonder what sort of person would pay 190079 DM in 1990 for a motorhome. Then keep it for 20 years until they stopped travelling. If they could afford to buy a motorhome at that price when it was new I would presume that if anything better came onto the market in the 20 years of there ownership, they would have bought it. I can only guess that nothing tempted them. For a couple or single traveller, this van cannot be bettered at any price and is only for sale due to change of plans. I do need the extra train weight and will of course only be replacing the 670 with a heavier vehicle. Never deny yourself quality, you have earned it :thumb:

    Hi, There are 3 belted pilot seats as its the bar version. Pats son who is an adult sometimes comes with us and sleeps on the coach with the drivers seat as an extension. We have done trips of 10 days like this with no problem.

    Hi
    Sounds as though we could manage as the kids are small but obviously need to know the price and as I live in France would you be interested in euros.
    Kind regards
    Alan
