    cant help specifically but in general you have to consider if you want to import it into the UK permanently.

    this throws up some expense which may or may not cancel any savings made buying in mainland Europe.

    import fee's, taxes, registration fee's, number plate cost and, depending how old a model, headlamp conversion to UK spec.

    Hi Halden,
    Long time friends had the same rig for a number of years from new, cracking van, they only changed for a bigger rig because of long term abroad.
    I bought a new Hymer direct out of Germany, with all the extra's available, saved £8,500 and had double the UK warranty for no extra cost.
    Fine L/H, great on the continent and no probs in the UK.
    Had the van now 9 years, well looked after and as good as new.
    Good luck with your search.
    Best Regards, Mac
