    Hi All,

    I'm thinking of buying a second hand (early 1990's) 4/5 berth camper van. Something I'd like to know beforehand is the availability of cheap second hand parts for certain types of vans that your typical van dismantler would regularly have in stock. I'd imagine parts for something like a Ford Transit would be easy enough to come by. Any other recommendations? Is there any make of van that parts are incredibly difficult to come by? Any tips or past experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance for all responses.

    You should be pretty safe with Ford , Fiat , Mercedes, even Nissan parts would be available at commercial vehicle breakers can't think of one particular van that would be hard to come by
