    Following on for the deciding factors thread I thought I would ask what you have in your present motorhome that would be a "must have" in your next van.....

    I would not be without our huge garage..... it wasn't on the wish list having never had a motorhome with a garage under fixed bed before but now it is a must have!

    U-Shaped lounge - great for entertaining, and gives you a huge bed!
    Gadgets don't really count because you can retrofit them, but the rear view camera is right up there on the list!

    Yes, I was thinking more about layout and fittings / fixtures that would be difficult and very expensive to change / retrofit :)

    Make sure he is fit for purpose first Joy as it gets expensive to change him and the sale of goods act doesn't apply....

    U shaped as well for us, if there's only two of you you can leave the bed up and use it as a Hugh comfy sofa, or put it away and have room for more to sit at , in fact this thread is about your next mh but we like this one just as it is and don't intend ever swopping it, it's got everything we need.(y)

    Well it's not everybody's cup of tea, but we get on great with our quirky drop down bed that gives us a good sized day area. But the U shaped lounge also gets or vote, can be a nice day area or left up as a bed. Plus you get some good sized lockers which I would dearly love! Some air con would be nice and cruise control... :rolleyes::):)

    All the swifts left here on Monday - gone south for the winter. They are pretty birds, very athletic but not blonde - and they don't do the lottery.
