    Hi Everyone,

    Looking to buy one of these as an upgrade to our current motorhome. Will only be second motorhome purchase so would really welcome some advice on what to look out for on this particular model and with part exchange deals in general.

    All advice welcome,

    Thanks

    I don't know this model in particular. We looked at a Rapido at a show. We liked it but we felt it smaelt of damp in the storage area. It turned out there were serious damp problems and all the windows had not been sealed correctly letting in the water.

    Look out for nice smells disguising damp smells,chck around the windows and lockers for damp. Better still get it checked by a professional. We did and backed out.

    Cracking motorhome. Build quality is good. Depends as it will with all secondhand vehicles on what sort of life it's had.

    I think Paul at Carvavannes Rapido, Wokingham has one similiar, I drove it back from Newbury for them as I don't live far from them and needed a lift back anyway so it solved my problem and helped them.

    Very nice, clean, low mileage example, drove like a dream and good on diesel:thumb:

    I can 100% recommend them as a dealer so give Paul or Martin a call on 01189-791023 and have a chat.

    they do say most people get it right by their third van so I hope you are well in front. Enjoy the hunt and do drop by the chatroom to let us know how you get on.

    Early ones were a bit basic and ugly, new ones are a lot better but A class. not coachbuilt
