    We had a look at this one that had been imported to Jersey a while back but thought we could do better going to look in France as we definitely wanted a LHD and French tax paid as we plan to spend a fair bit of time there next year.
    Anyway we looked at a lot and realized what was important to us, a fixed bed and sort of separate shower and the more we looked we realized the one in Jersey would tick our boxes.
    On our last day we met a Jersey man who had been a long term caravanner who had visited loads of Motorhome shows and had just purchased one the same size new. He explained that everything is a compromise and go for what is important to you. He knew about the Chausson and said it was a beauty but probably sold as his cousin had had it to try that weekend. So on Monday we spoke to the garage and he said not sold until he had pound notes, so we took it for a drive and did a deal.
    Hope to collect it this week as funds need to clear and the owner is going to come and talk us through everything.
    Really excited but sure will have some questions!!

    Thanks for the encouraging replies!!:BigGrin:
    We have just ordered a Snooper DB8500s after reading lots of for and against comments. We met someone who had one and said it was the best thing he had used in France.
    Also will need to sort out a reversing camera but that will have to wait!:Smile:
