We are looking for some advice (as being relative newbies). We have been offered, by our friends, a new(ish) Burstner compact of which my Wife has fallen in love with - we intend to spend a lot of 2013 in France/Spain as we are now 'bitten' with motorhoming.
However, to partially fund this potential purchase we will have to sell our 'Connie' but dont have a clue what it's worth - we have seen them from £8k to £18k and would like a bit of advice from the 'much more experienced' motorhomers here,,,,,,,, if possible - we can't P/Ex with the one we want as the owners have already bought thier new one.
A little about it,
Connie is a 56,000 (genuine) mile Swift Kon-Tiki 640/6 berth 2.5 Turbo Diesel Talbot in very good condition. She has had power steering fitted (very early in her life) recent MOT, new cam/pump belts, in fact all belts, and all idlers, oil/filter changes and all equipment works as it should. A generous six berth, U shaped lounge at the rear, bike racks, rear ladders, top box, free-view colour TV, shower, wc, fridge, central and blown C/H, etc etc etc.
What would be a 'reasonable' price to ask for her - can't keep both
I prefer Connie as she is blessed with plenty of room compared to the compact, but who am I when my Wife has such 'burning desires' for the newer compact.
This is not a for sale advert - we would just like some advice from the more knowledgable here.
