    Hi guys ,after nearly 25 years of towing a tin tent we have now decided after a very recent trip to the Vende and Loir that we would like to change to a Motorhome,but as always i have a few questions :BigGrin:

    Our budget will be a modest low £18k we hope after selling our van and car and we hae taken a shine to a couple of models that still give us the van feel and room to stretch out.
    1 is the Autotrail 634u , but we need to know about seatbelt options for the rear as we have to kids aged 10 and 4
    and the other is the Swift Gazelle, both seem very similar, seem to give us what we want in space and storage options internally and at home on our driveway ,thus saving us storage fees and hopefully making more use of the van.
    Has anyone had either of these.any problems are they good bad or ugly , i am a motor tech by trade so mechanicals should be ok,are they reliable with the fiat unit?
    Also why dont many of them have Aircon????? for the cab, will it not cope with the size of the living space and be inefficent? or do they not get that hot whilst driving, i love it in my shogun but am very supprised that most do not seem to come with this option.
    any way many thanks for now ,and i look forward to hearing any advise given thanks in advance :thumb:

    Welcome. Afraid I cannot help on the models suggested, but Fiat units do come with an air con option for the cab which is fine whilst driving but has little effect on the habitation area.
