    I hear through the grapevine that Frankie has now made her mind up to take the plunge into becoming a campingcarist. From what am told she needs not only a camper but a daily driver that is not to big to be used as a car. With this in mind I am making a short list of probables. If any catch your fancy Frankie, let me know and they will be delivered to your door instead of to mine. This is my first suggestion. Of course I know they must be LHD. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200930327796?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    Waooo I don't know how you find those vans Dave but indeed really what I fancy most... (some footy fans will probably say ....Don't you think it's a bit too red?:RollEyes::RollEyes:)...pity it's already over 5000 euros and it's nearly finished!

    Oh ... and nearly forgot...Thank you so much for your so very nice offer to deliver it . You must tell me how much would be the cost of all this so I can budget it

    Nice and clean little one, each time I see a westafalia I say it's one for me, but I must say even if I didn't see the shower and all the woman's stuff , such as cooker and fridge...I was really impressed by the first one!

    Dont worry Frankie, there are more in the pipeline. I thought that one would make strong money as it was a very nice one. Tell me though, is that the type of thing you are looking for, or is it too big. Would a VW be too small ?.

    A bit too big yes Terry but quite nice, if I had to think about one for fulltiming, except may be it doesn't have a drop bed which I really like.
    I must say I have really loved one I think you had found on the other thread "starters vans". I can't remember the trade ,I think it's Niemans or something like it, and it was still to be sold. It was sayiong that this motorhome was the rollroyce of motorhomes. It had some blue coloured lines on (some footy fans would probably say .... What a nice colour to have on a motorhome....:RollEyes::RollEyes::Laughing:)


    Thanks for your search anyway!

    This one is really the type of size I would like most. I would be hysterical if I could have one like this one!!!:BigGrin::BigGrin: I quite like Westfalias but when they have a top on they look less reliable if there is wind . Might be just me though!
    As for being a bit too small , I could sleep in a match box, as long as I have water and a cooker and of course toilets :BigGrin: Most of the time I will try to get my friend Lyli to come along with me along with her 2 doggies, but even so a westafalia would still do:thumb:.

    OK, This may be getting on in years, but it has had a lot of money spent on it. It looks in very good condition and its within budget. Its no good to a German dealer, as by EU law he has to give a guarantee with it. http://home.mobile.de/RENNASS#des_180142003

    You would have to call the seller- if genuine I am sure he/she would wait for cash :Wink: but as you say no see, no buy :thumb::BigGrin:

    This is exactly the kind of motorhome I'd like to have ...later! A big rear lounge ,drop bed , and old german way of making things (I can't find the translation in English for "excellente facture" ... Google being too stupid says "invoice" for facture but nothing to do with it!)

    I've just looked up on internet if anything had changed about driving licence and ...nope! I still can't drive anything over 3,5t unless I pass the C licence. and only available 2 years when you're over 60 years old!!!! So I should try to pass it as late as possible!

    No Roger . This word comes the verb "faire" ..."make" So may be you would say an excellent make. Hymer factory has the reputation of an excellent make (furniture in their motorhomes). Does it make a sense?
