    Hi again everyone ! the house is sold already.. ! :) and we are going to go for the apache 700.. but it seems the 700 is hard to come by.. if anyone know of one please let me know.
    looking for 07-10 plate with a nice price tag of around 25k .

    The later models have the larger rear locker..
    Well worth looking out for... :)
    There was a lot of wasted space under the rear of the van prior to the change and I think that happened around 2010...


    Oh... !! Just seen the budget £25k.. that will rule out 2010.. Good luck anyway...

    Sounds perfect but I'd be lucky to find one under 30k

    as long as you go and view, do hpi checks etc then buying off ebay is the same as any private sale. I.E. no comeback unless mis-described.

    Here's my Apache 700SE, as close to immaculate as you could find, just 28000 miles, top flight solar system, new Agilis tyres all round, superb air suspension, six berth, 28 to the gallon and absolutely gorgeous.(y)
    Would take some 'prizing' to get it off me though...... Obviously the Wife can't see me typing or my family jewels would be sitting outside.:whistle:

    All seriousness, they are a great van with gallons of room and really comfortable - if you want to look at a good one feel free to pop along.

    Regards,

    Trikeman.;)

    If you have not got one could you get to the Newark show and if not definately try and get to the Peterborough show, there will be many many motorhomes of every shape and size for sale there. Could be worth going.

    When we were looking for our Millie we drove over 2000 miles looking at Apache's,,,, we kept the faith and 'strangely' ours came up for sale only 6 miles away from us. Bought and not looked back since - the previous owner has asked to buy back a few times since his circumstances have changed but she has stayed with us.

    Stick with it and you will find your dream van.

    If the price is right then be prepared to travel. If you want something badly enough then go get it. We travelled from Glasgow to Alfreton for ours. Great MHs

    As you are looking for a specific model, and you have a specific budget you may have to travel to get what you want.
    You can't have everything lol

    thats weird because it echos our buying position, we looked high and low all ovr the counrty then just as were loosing the will, we found one privitly on ebay about 20 miles away.

    to the o/p remember the scouts are the same layout, genrally slghty bigger or more storage year for year than the appaches

    Hi team, still looking for the right truck.. So confused.. we are looking at these 2 styles . the problems we have are : do we go for a large one with space to move about and not be on top of the kids on rubbish weather days ,or a smaller compact one for getting in and out of towns and parking.
    Not forgetting we're away for a year!! 2 kids and a dog.
    Please help.! We're running out of time to find one ( wanting to leave in July )

    I don't have a dog or kids to consider and I know nothing about Rimors but I have had an Autotrail, Apache 634u, I personally would go for the larger van. (y)

    The upside is the bunk beds also coming with a large garage for surfboards.. The downside is can't get away from the kids and the kids will travel and hangout in the same seats .. So confused
