    Hello everybody, Parker from Penelope and Parker here. If it's not already obvious, she's the girl and I'm the boy!
    We are currently caravanners but look to buy our first motorhome shortly. Have done loads of research and not a few miles looking. Tried all the makes and configurations out there. All but sold on a 2006 Hymer Starline B700 on the Mercedes chassis with a manual box and would appreciate any advice, good or bad. Thanks.

    Hi @Parker and Penelope,
    Welcome to the forum.
    We've just sold our Starline, it was a B680 'S' 2015 vintage with the auto box so I can't really make any useful comments.
    The Hymer is very good and I'm sure you'll like the Mercedes bit although body roll can be quite pronounced when cornering.
    Stef.

    Thanks for the very 'fun' welcome everybody, we feel totally at home already. Thanks also to Stef for the body roll tip, didn't know about that.. Now, where did I put my motorhome wanted spreadsheet?
    Have a great weekend each and all.
