    :helpsos: Hi to you all, We are going to the Manchester show on the 20-21th of Jan. We have decided on a Autotrail Dakkota or a Swift Voger 680. If any of you experienced motorhomers could give us any advice we would be gratfull. Thanks John and Carol.

    We've owned a couple of Auto Trails. A 1990 Pullman and a 2006 Arapaho. Both were great Motorhomes that gave us no problems at all.

    Are you a first time buyer? Check out buyers guide in my signature, you should not buy a motorhome before you have read it:thumb:

    Just had a browse through the sponsored link, first time read looks to be an easy to understand informed read.
    I sound a bit like Del Boys market stooge, but it looks to be a good read if you are buying.:thumb:

    Hi and Welcome to Fun
    Enjoy the show at manchester,If it was a first purchase into the world of motorhomes, not sure i would buy new though, i would look to buy one a couple of years old as they dont usually have many miles on the clock and are considerably less money

    Have you checked what is in the show, in the past it's been poor for MHs, very much caravan based. It may have changed.

    One of the things I would take into consideration is the distance of the Motorhome Dealer you buy from and where you live, it can be a real pain to discover for little things you may have to make a 200 mile or so round trip.

    What you can get a feel for at a show is what layout you might like in a warm snow free place. We bought second hand both times as they have usually sorted out problems and have added extra "toys". Good point about dealer location.
