Those 5 pot Mercs are good for 500000 miles if the oil is changed at 5000 miles. Something drastic must have happened to the original. Feb 26, 2018

        Dave, yes I would expect that sort of answer. I am just checking out a few things then see if I can put in an offer. Although living in Brighton, I actually come from your nemesis Manchester, well south of Stockport.

      Hello Dave @Snowbird. Sorry for being so forward, I know you get a lot of questions but I am here on this site because you have been recommending RMB's to people. I have been looking at RMB's and have found one I like. I was wondering if you could take a quick look and see if you have seen it on your travels looking at RMB's. I am not sure how to contact you directly and think this is the way.
      Kind regards
      Owen

        The engine was changed @ 116000km. Its bloody cheap at that price, but he will come down to 20000 am sure as its export. Its the flagship Silver Star with pure sine inverter. Only thing not original is the bathroom sink. Get it bought.

        Everything but the bathroom sink! Thanks for your appraisal. Just one more question with you being an ex haulier. 116,000km is not a lot for a diesel, what would you be expecting for such an engine?

      Hello Snowbird, I just stopped over on a blog that came up where a guy renovated an RMB he bought in Spain! He booked out Vital Logistics in Hampshire to do the work in, that company is now defunct. I have just purchased a 1990 RMB the same as his, and also need a location but as importantly need to know where the specialists are if i need them for parts and work etc,. I am in London N1 :) a
      cheers

      Hi , I bought it in Belgium last month, the photo is one of the previous owners, as it ain't stopped raining since I've had it. At least I know it's not leaking.! It's based on a 714d, and I bought it of mobile.de. Well pleased with it Mike

        Same model as the last one I had. Am sure it was advertised from Spain at one time, but maybe am wrong.

      Hi , just dropping you a quick line as I've just bought an Rmb from Belgium. It's. 1994 model. Wondering if you still have yours. I'm in the process of registering at the moment. Look forward to hearing from you. Mike

        Hi Mike, am without an RMB at the moment, but who knows for how long. Having owned a 670 and a 760 with matching RMB trailer in the past and brokered several others you never can tell. If the one in your avitor is yours, was it for sale from Spain at one time as I seem to remember it.

      Hi Snowbird,I was researching a microwave HMG20D when I came across your same dilemma.After a great deal of trawling I have come to the conclusion that this microwave has been exclusively manufactured for Carrefour by Samsung. I have downloaded a user manual from Samsung-MG23F301TAK which I think is the 23 litre version but I can't confirm until I go back to Spain in September.
      Regards,Ray.

        Thanks so much for that. I still do not have a user manual, but have found out how the thing works by trial and error. I did think it would be made by one of the big manufactures and badged up for Carrefour.

      Hello. I have read a lot of your helpful posts including Mercedes T1 based vehicles. We have a 1992 308d based homebuilt conversion. Engine is sound but we are experiencing problems with fuel supply. The In line filter is constantly blocking and we have been advised that the tank is corroded/contaminated and needs replacing. Can you suggest a possible source for a replacement? Best wishes. Paul.
