    They look great, good idea allowing try before you buy.
    Fairly certain had we known about this company before we bought our 1st pvc, we wouldn't now be on our 2nd pvc.

    Thanks we have tried them, they do not have the Europa, the layout we are looking for available. They only have one van of each type and someone has the Europa booked out for a month next April!

    We were looking to hire a MH earlier this year. In the end we bought one as the depreciation was going to be less than the rental cost.

    We bought in June, used it for 10 days in france plus numerous weekends away and have just traded it back in for only £500 less than we paid. Rental was going to be much more for the 10 day france trip alone. Have been bitten by the MH bug though and now have a nice A class!

    Maybe buying and selling will be cheaper depending on how long you want to rent for?

    We were only hiring for 10 days but the hone we wanted (in July, with euro cover and 2 drivers) was costing nearly £1300!

    The prices for these are very reasonable for hire though, especially in mid and low season, I assume because they are more a try before you buy idea, hoping you might then purchase from them.
    We looked at hiring a MH before buying and it was going to be very expensive a couple of thousand, so we decided against as we thought better to put towards the purchase cost, has we seen this company though I think would have been happy to try first at a cost of £300-£500.
    We got the layout wrong in our first pvc, we knew we wanted a fixed rear high bed but got seduced by a front lounge with floor space, that was a dog friendly type, a year later after twice changing the internal layout, we swapped to a rear high fixed bed pvc. I'm sure if we had tried first would have stuck with rear high fixed from the off.

    It might be worth just doing a 3 day hire if you could fit in at another time?
    Sounds like I work for them lol, I don't, but think trying before you buy is a great idea especially if you are n market for a pvc as it will give you an idea even for other pvc makes as they are all very similar. For us it was the making up a bed that made us change later.
