    You know, the one you'll buy when the lottery smiles upon you and not just those lucky buggers who keep winning the Euro raffle.

    Here's my shortlist:

    Carthago Highliner 50
    Carthago Chic S plus
    Burstner Aviano i728G
    Concorde Credo/Carver 791

    Now that's a good question, Variomobil Star on MAN or Merc truck chassis but running sub 7.5 tonne and just under 8 metres, air suspension diff lock and jacks, lots of solar and a couple of big Gel batteries. Not that I have given this any thought of course.

    If the lottery smiled on me I would not be buying a motorhome, There would be lots of other things to buy. Given that, I should think that most people buy the motorhome that suits what they want to do with it, what's the point of spending money on the biggest and the best if that's not what you want.
    However, not to be a miserable spoil sport I would buy a Hymer that I could have tailored to my needs. The MH in the pic on the left is our last one, just bought a new one.

    Simon, that's a great list but I'd need a full time chauffeur as I wouldn't have the bottle to drive any of them:crying1:

    I think they're all under 8 metres so they *should* be drivable pretty much anywhere. I'd give it a good go anyway :)

    And I'd enjoy watching you, but it's the overall size and value that scares the shorts of me :LOL:

    Well, not a lottery win but many years of hard work and piling money into the pension fund but we now have our dream van sitting on the drive.
    Our new Carthago Chic.
    Just need to be able to get away now to enjoy it. Hopefully it won't be long and we will be off over the water. :)

    Richard.

    Quite happy with the one we have 750 Bailey does it all for us. It has 4 wheels , 4 beds, goes from here to there at a good MPG and is very comfortable, with all the mod cons..... Couldn't ask for more, so OH says we don't need a new one and anyway we will probably never will win the lottery, so simples! Think about what else I could spend the money on, Harley, Gold wing , Yacht, Lotus, a house in the Caribbean.
