    A lot depends on the size of the dogs and where you intend to keep them. with the twin beds there is not room to put an access door to the garage which would be ideal to keep the dogs from under your feet. Not much floor space with that layout. yorkies probably ok but anything larger would be a problem. Still the van is close enough to go and view to work that out for yourself.

    As newbys my advice is look at lots of motor homes as you have to try and get it right the first time as its very expensive if you get it wrong.
    It took myself and wife a year to get the right set up that works for us,
    then had Autotrail and also the dealership to tweek it for use.

    Very nice and my prefered layout, we manage to put a door through to the dogs cages immediatly we got ours with a similar layout by going through the cupboards under the end of the bed on one side, I presume you will be making an offer, risky buying private I know but if its genuine and you can get the right price...... I paid 47k over 3 years ago and have not regreted it

    That depends which dealer you are buying from though.

    Those fixed beds leave you with poor lounge space.

    Thanks for your comments-really useful to get different perspective.After reading about poor aftersales care it would suggest it can be traumatic trying to get them to actually put things right under the "guarantee" and I have seen several posts on here regarding buying privately should be considered.Any offer would be made subject to survey by a suitably qualified person if we found the right van.thanks again for your help-much appreciated.

    New regs in March mean lots more used vans will come to market.
    Have you seen Jim's book in the shop above?
    It's full of really useful advice for van purchasing.
    Good luck.

    Sorry I could sense a ripple of panic then. I meant new vehicle registration dates for new sales in March and September.

    Hi do you mean you have the same model and that it was 47k 3years ago? if so it would make this one seem expensive !

    Thanks for your reply-I understand you have more than one dog! we have 2 cockapoos-Leo is 25kg Dora is 13kg so they are substantial to say the least.When we have been looking round Dealers they have stayed outside with one of us as obviously we didn't expect to allow them inside(we love them but respect those who don't appreciate them for all the usual reasons)We had thought that this would be the preferred layout but see some think thre will not be enough room but this seems to work for you ,are you ever concerned about the space and could see a layout which may work better ?

    Does not look like a genuine private sale to me or a reputable dealer......( has no selling history?) be very careful. HPI and damp survey at the very least! Twin singles means extra length to live with, If your happy with transverse bed, You get either a shorter van or more lounge room. It looks nice enough though, hard to tell as photos not that great.....Have a look on www.mobile.de for a price comparison and maybe consider an import?

    It's on the Merc 4t chassis I think (single wheel) so check payload depending what you want to put in it. Automatic should be the proper torque converter job on the 3 litre I believe. Should be a nice van if everything fits your bill get it checked and pay less than the asking price as it looks like a dealer price not private to me.

    How long are you willing to go?

    This layout may suit you better, two seating areas in the day, the rear lounge then makes either two singles or a large double. You also have the option of sleeping in the over cab bed and putting the dogs in the rear lounge.

    Niesmann + bischoff are really good vans, this one has been for sale on eBay for months however, so I'm not suggesting you rush out and buy it but have you considered that layout?

    £46,995.00
    NIESMANN+BISCHOFF Arto 74
    A LUXURIOUS MOTORHOME WITH REAR LOUNGE

    On eBay, not sure if this link is working
