Default Opinions, please...

Bit out of touch with Euro-van`s in the last 8 years or so...

I rather like this one below, not worried about the over head drop down bed, would sooner have cupboards.... as long as it had 3 berths..

Think it has twin back wheels, although would sooner have a tag axle... I would be "A"`ing a car or trailer for continent..

Anybody got one or similar if so how do you get on with it.. ?

Only ever had Ford`s and Fiats, so not up on the problems I can expect from a Merc..

I have e,mailed the seller, but as yet no reply to a couple of questions..

Looking at other M/Homes from the seller, I think they must be brokers..

Not "Yank Trash" , Dave... we love it, but sitting down a chatting...

We would be more inclined if we had summat a little smaller, to just say sod it, nice weekend lets bugger off..

Where as our`s we have to think (Shows are different) can we get on site, can we get down the road to the site..

And I must admit,,,, I envy you guy`s when you go to France and stay on the aires, not cos most are free or little money,,,, but because where they are situated... Some look stunning...

Plus we would be more inclined to look at the calender and think the "Funsters" have got a meet at so and so next weekend...

Lets go and see if I can upset some....

I just think it will open the door a bit more, and we will get more use out of one...

Only done two proper long trips this year...

Got to sell this one first...
