    Hi

    Just wondering what people thought of motorhomes such as Trigano's or similar. We don't want anything too big for our first motorhome.

    go for it

    I had a Timberland panel van for 5 yrs and loved it. Two things to look for are 1. driving position and 2. the bed (you will spend 1/3 of your time on it) so look carefully and enjoy it we did

    You need to understand what you require from your van before you buy,because if you do not you may end up with a van you wished you had not purchased.

    A compact van like the Trigano will offer economy and versability, but it will be at a price, and that price is space and equipment.

    Why not hire one for a weekend to see how you get on?

    We down sized from a Auto sleeper coach built to a 2008 Trigano tribute 650, and we have never regretted it, family size fridge, very large freezer, seperate shower, oven with rottisery, cruise control, alloy wheels side body mouldings and 2.3 120 diesel engine, with approx 34 mpg. We have fitted 100 watt solar panel 2nd leisure battery, led lights, gaslow refilable bottles, wind out awning, tow bar and reversing camera, so now we are virtually self sufficient.
    Have a look on www.tribby.co.uk as there is loads of info on there.

    we started off witrh a trigano lovely van but as we progressed we wanted to go bigger as the only problem with that was having to get out of the way of tez going in and out of the bathroom while I was cooking seemed a small niggleii know but then we went to an Avantgarde which was lovely then we went even bigger to the sundance but made the mistake of having a low profile which looks really nice but didnt have enough storage space for us so now we have gone to a larger voyager with an overhead cab, what I am saying is you will probably end up going bigger unless your driveway wont allow it of course but we are now fulltiming so the driveway isnt an issue and we love the space the voyager gives us but is you are using it just for holidays and the odd weekend I would stay with a smaller one even though you still cannot use the car parks that have height barriers at least you can fit in one space on the car park you CAN get into!!!

    Our Roller Team is great. Good value for money, layout is versatile. We bought new so it didnt come with all the toys like reversing camera, awning etc. Havent had any problems with it at all. Love the family fridge as the freezer is a good size, which makes up for the grill oven that isnt. Take your time looking because it would be an expensive mistake if it isnt the "One" you want. Dont go looking with rosy specs either take a thorough look, prod and poke!!

    Hi

    We downsized to a Devon Monaco on a Renault Master from an Autosleeper Talisman and while it did most of what we wanted were not completely happy with it. We have now changed to a Laika X595C which while roughly the same size but being a coachbuilt gives extra width, and a squarer body so seems to give a lot more room.

    Hope this helps in your decision making.

    Best of luck
