    Hi Jim
    We had a look around van conversions by I H Motorhomes whilst at the Malvern Show. We were most impressed with them, very innovative and high quality finish.

    I have seen only a few - probably 10 ish - but both IH and Timberland ( MURVI deserves a mention ) stood out IMO :thumb: Having said that at about 10 k premium on some of the others, so they should :thumb:Never having owned either one I have no idea if this premium is deserved ie hold together well in use :Wink: but they do get a premium price come sale time.Yet overall you will loose more money on a 40 k van at say yr 5 than with a 30 k van ie it may well be worth 5 k more than the 30 k one but you paid 10 k more in the first place :Eeek::Rofl1:

    edit- Indeed when I get around to converting my next van I will be doing a lot more H/W on all 3 mentioned plus a few others to nick a few ideas to copy-- I am sure Swift / auto cruse nicked my layout on there PVC heehee

    Must agree IH and Timberland seem nice Murvi seem good but not to keen on personally.

    Had a Devon finish not so plush as above but had for 2 years only really changed as disabled wife found it appeared to be shrinking but apart from that no problems.

    I am very impressed by the Timberland range, always look like really good quality, I will try and remember MMM from this month that has a comparison of two panel van converters (for bath)

    However one other thing to say is that do not discount Adria, they are a fantastic converter and do some excellent panel vans, at a fraction of the cost of Timberland. :thumb:

    IH do a brilliant van but you pay for it, the AutoCruise are not bad value for money in comparison.
