    Any one interested in upgrading from motorhome to RV????? I have a Monaco Diplomat 36B 1999 fully equiped for Wild camping and Full timing, looking to swap with cash adjustment either way for Motorhome about 20' 23' with a rear end bedroom would prefer Hymer but all considered, within about £20,00 to £35000 area, as am looking for £35000 for mine, as this is a high end RV and one of the best type going, but please note this RV requires an HGV or Class C driving licence which can be obtained from one of out members who has a driving school in Leicester if required, Please drop me a pm if anyone interested, Regards Garry Flatpackchicken

    Blimey Garry, how you going to manage. :Eek!:

    No washing machine or tumble dryer !!!!!!!!! :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Good luck finding what you want, I know your getting Itchy Feet and like us, the journey south is getting closer, but you need an A Class and I don't think you will be happy with anything else, once you have had the comfort and space you have got, you will soon get cabin fever.:Wink::Rofl1::Rofl1: Bob.

    Am not sure about the weight, but I would say somewhere around 11 tons. If its any consolation, your not alone in thinking that an HGV is not required to drive an RV of this weight.

    Not certain but I would say Bobs is nearer to 5.5 ton any thing over 7500Kg needs a C licence over 3500Kg -7500Kg C1 licence

    All the best Rick

    Hope we are not getting into lengths here Buttons :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    My 29ft B Class has a GVW of 6577kg probably similar to Bobs.
    A 32ft A Class Thor Hurricane with no slide out comes in at around 7200kg gvw
    There are some A Class RVs up to about 34ft with slide outs which just sneak under 7500kg.
    7500kg gvw (8250kg gtw) being the limit for a C1+E with 107 licence
