    My good friend (who was responsible for getting me into motorhoming) is reluctantly having to part with his Motorhome due to a potentially serious illness.

    I have offered to help him and his partner facilitate the sale during this worrying time as they are not savvy in selling on forums or the Internet. Also, their minds are on other things!

    I note from our classified ad's section that this is for 'subscribers only'. He is a lapsed member of MHF, so my question is, what are the rules about this?

    Obviously, we can't have all and sundry advertising here and rulz is rulz, but any advice would be appreciated.

    James

    Only one man can answer this, PM Jim, our glorious leader, he who commands the sun and the sea.

    I would have thought that you personally could list the van and receive any initial enquiries. An exchange of phone numbers via PM would then follow, be it your number or that of your friend.
    Other members have previously listed MH's for friends and relatives. No doubt Jim will advise if I have got this wrong.

    All,
    Have received a PM from Jim and a special dispensation that I'm happy with (thanks Jim).

    That sounds like a sensible solution. Help for a past member who is unwell and possibly a good buy for a current member.
    Best of both worlds I'd say.
    Shows what a great forum this is.

    Wow, cherish it, use it with great care, most of all frame it and hang it on your wall. Refuse all offers for it under £10K, after that um and ah a lot and you could make £15K.

    James Was it sealed in wax and imprinted with Jim's ring? If not it is worthless. :D

    Best wishes to your friends.
