    Hello all,

    We are looking to travel Europe and want to start off with a Second hand Motorhome.

    Can you give us some help - we are currently living in Spain and are from UK.

    Thanks :)

    Hi

    Hi

    We are looking for something really cheap around the £2k mark. I know this is pretty cheap but we just want something that we can get around in to start off then hopefully look to upgrade at a later date when we are sure its for us.

    We just want anything around that price as long as the engine is good or dose not need too much work we are not too bothered about the inside.

    We want it to go through Spain and France not sure if it is better to have left had drive or if it really matters. We are in Spain Alicante area but we are happy to drive to pick up.

    Thanks

    Jayne

    Hi

    Look on Ebay under Campervans or Motorhomes & put a filter in starting at lowest price first. Good Luck!

    Well if you are resident in mainland Europe for 6 months or more, it will have to be registered there. If you try to re-register a vehicle there is certain documentation you need to comply with that which will not be readily available for vehicles over a certain age. Neither is it a quick process whether the vehicle arrives with the necessary bits of paper or not. And of course, it costs.

    Far easier to buy one in the same country as your official address there, I would think? ie Spain.
