    Visited a well known dealers today in West Lothian, we only went to buy some odds and ends from shop but naturally had a nose around and through windows of motorhomes on show.

    Looked at panel van Adria 3 berth, liked idea of size and using as everyday vehicle but no good at moment with 3 dogs. Pilote with island bed great but to big, hubby thought wasted space up front. He liked Chausson Allegro 97 but not enough to change for sake of it.
    We now realise that we really like ours and at the moment it really suits our needs and didn't see any to change our minds except maybe a couple of caravans if you could just put a steering wheel up front.:D

    Yes we did. Quite liked the A class over in the corner with the 2 single beds at back...but way out our budget so like you we are just keeping what we have until 1 jumps out at us. Had a rep showing us in 1 with an electric bed but didnt like the rest of the layout. I commented on how all the outside MHs were locked, was told they used to be open but people were nicking bits out of them and shitting in the toilets, thats why they are now all locked outside.

    We got our motorhome from St Andrews Motorhomes, they were all open but on much smaller scale.
    If Knoweparkes were all open I'd be there all day. The lady at St Andrews said the big dealers don't like paying for cleaners but I believe about the nicking. :)
    Think it was Hymer in the corner.

    Have to say I agree, probably one of the best accessories shops and at reasonable prices. Always visit on the way to my mums and coming home! (y)

    Bags of MH stock of all sorts there and all open(the last time I was there). Sales people not pushy either but very helpful when asked. If you look you KNOW you're going to give in in the end and......................................buy! :D
