    Sorry, Rob, don't know anything about Valentines, but being an Essex boy I do know that the Rainham you refer to is in Essex, not Kent!

    Wouldn't want you to turn up to look at it in the wrong county!

    Been there for a few years

    Did look at a Renault traffic a few years back

    They also did/do m/h rentals ( best check not the one your looking at)
    the site was larger a couple of years back

    Think the right hand car dealer yard was part of rainham motor caravans

    Never dealt with them so unknown to me their quality or professionalism

    Tried to do a deal with them couple of years ago. Did not buy in the end. Nice enough bloke if owned by same people. Same with any purchase, do plenty of homework and don't buy unless really sure about vehicle as much as you could be.

    Rainham is in Kent (Medway towns) though there is also one in NE London which I suppose might count as Essex.

    Bought an Old “Suntrecker” demountable on CF chassis, from them back in the 70`s probably grown a bit since then .Had good deal used to be in the same area as DJV Transport cafe Rainham on the A13.

    mounted it onto Transit chassis ,much different animal .

    Because we live in a static caravan in Great Bentley we have not got a postal address here, so all our post goes to my sister-in-law's address, RM13 7JH and that's Rainham

    Yes Ray, it IS Rainham ( sigh !! :Rofl1: ) But Rainham is in the over all area covered by the Romford ( RM ) post code ..

    Just like my post code is IP, even though we are not only 45 miles from Ipswich, but not even in Suffolk !!

    The place yu refer to is Rainham Essex, near the Circus Tavern nightclub and ten minutes away from the dartford crossing.....nowhere near North London as it has a Romford postcode.
    I have lived nearby, aand work 1/2 mile away, they have been there for years, i looked at an RV there once but never bought. I know of one workmate who bought from them and was happy with his purchase.
    Due to my proximity, I would be available for help if eeded.:thumb:

    Couple of points here Rob..
    1) you could be buying EXACTLY the same issue as you currently have mate

    2) You really do like your little ones dont you !! Man up and get a proper motorhome and not something Noddy would even hide round the corner !!

    Just wondering how much you could get an 07 plate for ? They are 2013 compliant as standard :Wink:
