    Hi there,

    We have just joined the club. We haven't yet got a motor-home, but are looking to purchase one very soon.
    Up until now our motorhome experience has been travelling all over Europe in a VW type 2 pop-top camper with our 2 small children (youngest 3 months), which we loved. But as we are now older and the kids have flown the nest we are looking for something more comfortable.

    We are seriously looking at the Hobby 750, but it seems that they are all up north...llol

    Is there anyone within striking distance of Hampshire, that we could take a look at to see if it suits our needs?

    Any other info about the Hobby 750 will be gratefully received.

    Thanks,
    Margit & Kelso

    Hi and welcome to the forum. We are also relatively newbies around here though not that new to motorhoming and love the warmth shown by the Funsters. Sorry can't help with the Hobby enquiry, we have an Autocruise....and live just up the road from you in Basingstoke:Smile:

    Hi and welcome to the Fun! :welcome:

    I've got a 750 but it's the later Toskana version - not sure if that's what you're after. If it is, I'm currently at Kidderminster. :Smile:

    I presume that`s the older 750 tag axle.. ?

    We had a new 750 FMS.. back in 2004, imported it ourselves from Belgium...

    Cracking motorhome and typical German quality.... did thousands of miles home and abroad... The only fault we had was a faulty (LHD) drivers electric window motor...

    Some reasonable mileage`d and priced ones out there.. :thumb:

    Right price and right condition.... worth travelling a few miles to view.. :thumb:

    I would think it would be perfect for you, it was my first choice, but we couldnt find one anywhere near us and ended up getting our Autosleeper, which is a good ( albeit dearer ) second choice.
    As long as you are happy with the length, they are almost 8 metres long and will restrict you sometimes. When we couldnt find a Hobby, we looked at vans well under 8 metres so it would fit on the driveway and still allow access to the garage.

    Hi Margit & Kelso,

    Why not come along to East Sussex and have a look at what I can offer, no Hobbies but a good selection of vans for two people

    Good Luck

    Peter
