    hello everyone,just joined and this is my fist post not very good with this interwebby thing so bear with me
    Anyway just gone and bought a 1993 Hymer S700 with my wifes FULL approval(just want that down in writing to point to in case of divorce proceedings later on) and we pick her up on saturday hopefully.
    Im afraid we have let our hearts rule our heads a bit already putting a deposit down sight unseen but having seen nothing but dogs or missing out on all the good ones wejust jumped at this one but now i need some reassurance that we have done the right thing in buying our own instead of just keep on borrowing my Dads (cheers mate just in case your reading) having worked my way up through his Bedfords(lovely old buses) Peugeot,Citroen coachbuilts and aVW transporter (sorry but yuck) i have jumped staight in at the deep end with an A class for my first ever motorhome, lucky me the only way is down from here right LOL i feel like im 9yrs old again and cant wait till saturday
    ps sorry for the long post i always waffle when im excited
    nite nite campers going to try to go to sleep now

    Congrats on the new purchase, are you buying from a dealer?

    Just don't part with any more dosh till you've seen it !

    Hope it's all you want - and a lot of the older Hymers are good, but not one make of em are guaranteed problem free even if they made it last week. Don't forget to jump up and down on the floor - same as caravans, if it feels 'soggy' - that's because it IS. Not rocket science! Makers charge silly money for OEM parts - and that's why God created firms like O'Leary's LOL

    Hope it's wonderful - enjoy!

    Oh - and don't forget to tell us anyway.

    Your perhaps pushing the boundaries of good luck if buying unseen but you won't know until you see it. It's 23 years old so there are going to be issues so go prepared for work / expense.
    Don't part with any more money and be prepared to walk away if it's not what your expecting.
    Hope it goes well for you, let us know.
    Did you say you got wife's approval in writing, you may need it !

    Hello and welcome to the Fun upload_2016-7-27_9-11-3.png

    I expect all will be well with your new moho but do remember that IF things go wrong then among all the "told you so's" and "I've never made a mistake's" there will be LOADS of help and advice available on here. But with good luck and a following wind all will be fine :) Sounds like you have plenty of experience anyway (y)

    Happy travels!

    Hi there and welcome to the madhouse. Just to let you in on a secret.....we did the same! And......we've just returned from 24 days in Europe ( went to Poland). Not without a couple of issues, but our MH was born in 1991. So what can you expect! We love her and can't wait for the next adventure. Happy travels!

    Hello and welcome from West Midlands. We bought our motorhome without all the precautions. We knew nothing about motorhomes (weren't even intending to buy one!). Went over to take a look and said we'd think about it...then drove off. By the time we got to the end of the road we turned back and agreed to take it :eek:.
    It proved to be just fine. Wasn't a scam and hasn't given anything but minor niggles that you might expect. We've looked at plenty since but haven't seen one we prefer. That was 5 years ago. So don't be overly concerned.
