    Well, it's been a while, but you can't keep a good woman down!

    So, sadly my lovely 'blue' hymer went to a very lovely woman, who said it has changed her life.....and she doesn't want to sell it back to me sadly! (And no, I don't give a monkey's what the purists say about it! lol)

    So, I am looking at buying a new van, (well, not new, but fairly newish hopefully), and need some advice.

    YES! I am going down the rental route again here in Bonnie Scotland....and yes, I know the vast majority of you will say I am mad, but I know that, verified already by my lovely g.p.!!!

    So looking to spend around 30k cash.

    MUST BE:

    Automatic/Semi Automatic
    Diesel preferred
    Almost new condition
    Leather upholstery preferred, (easier to stay clean).
    Under 3500kg

    Anyone got any suggestions please, (apart from "don't do it!" lol)

    I quite liked the look of this, but it's a bit of a stretch...........http://suchen.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/d...lVariant2.makeId=17200&pageNumber=1&fnai=prev

    Thanks guys!

    Ah thanks! Have you got your new van now?!

    It takes a real 'freespirit' to go to rallies without a van! xxx
