    Is when people keep saying my motorhome is a budget model, I paid best part of 50k for my Chausson new last year and to some it is a budget model.
    Well if you have a car which cost 20k and your neighbour bought a car costing 25k would you like him to tell you that yours is a budget model, if they were both new cars?
    If e.g. You had a Hymer second hand and paid 20k and your neighbour bought a new Rollerteam for 45k would you tell him he had a budget model?
    So leave me alone please or I will scream.

    Well my PVC used to be a builder's van, so I would not dream of telling anyone they had a budget model - £50k sounds like a lot of money to me. In fact it's £7k more than the sum of purchase prices for all 3 of my vans. You must be rich!! And why bother anyway??

    Ours is a German one which may have a huge hole where a window should be so you don't need to worry!

    I can only presume you have neighbours who are more status minded than yourself (y)

    Cant really think how that conversation could be starting so regularly o_O where are you when it happens?

    When people come to see me they say - "By heck, that's a big one" - and sometimes they're referring to the Motorhome!

    Did you fall for that sales spin? Everyone knows that the single butler model is the budget one. Our MH has a butler, chauffeur, cleaner, chef nanny and valet; doesn't yours ;)

    Whats 50k these days you can pay more than that for a car.;):D(y)

    It does not matter how much you pay for a van its down to what you want as long as you are happy with the van tell them to pi$$ off we paid 35k for our van and we love it.

    Too much motorhome snobbery by some people, just remember someone in a £20k van is having the same holiday as someone else in a £100k van.

    why get bothered about what anyone calls it, if you paid 5000 or 100,000 just enjoy it.
