    Does anyone know anything about WJ motorhomes. There is one for sale built on the Iveco chassis and it looks pretty well put together. Its a WJ Elite 870. I have never heard of these things before, so any comments from anyone that has seen one in the flesh would be much appreciated.

    It does seem that they are SA built which points to the fact they should be put together well. I dont understand how one would finish up in the UK as shipping costs would have been astronomical. They do seem to be well built with all the options. What I do like is the rear corner too corner fixed bed, allowing you to get out of bed on both sides without taking up too much of the vans interior.

    Yes, I saw it on Gumtree, am just intrigued on how it got here from South Africa. Its very low mileage for the year and as its on the Iveco chassis no problems with servicing. Am tempted to go and have a look, but wondered if any funsters knew anything about them.

    Go and look and ask lots of questions.
    It may be lower priced as it's not a well known manufacturer.
    Check his feedback. The negative one says scam.
