    Hi Dave,
    Why not check out the Autotrail range?
    Would suggest the Arapaho or Scout would suit what you're looking for.

    Hi Dave

    I'm another great fan of that layout, which you'll also find in a Bessacarr E695 of 1998-2001 vintage. I've just done a Google search are there are a couple or three out there looking for new owners at around £18,000-£23,000.

    We've had no problems at all with the Bessacarr side of ours over the past four years, and only a few service/age-related items on the Fiat side. Not bad after 12 years and 80,000 miles. As with any motorhome though, it pays to check and double-check for any damp ingress.

    Good luck with your search.

    we have a scout, love the layout, but If I was buying now Id go for the bigger arapaho

    the extra room in the lounge in well worth having in my opinion

    the price differance, for used ones is not as great as when they are new, probibily down to fact not everybody can store the bigger one
