    Couldn't understand why two people needed such a huge MH until he opened the back..! :LOL:

    They are German... he pulled in alongside us in Spain.. (Pretty sure it`s the same one)(y)

    Nice couple... ask to have a look inside...

    Can only just sit up in bed.. hardly any headroom in the bed... :(

    But the finish and quality of the build is fabulous... (y)

    Do like Concordes but always feel the lounge area a let down for such big vans, too much focus on kitchen and bathroom and compromised lounge.
    Not that I'll ever be able to afford or run one.

    Two of them were sulking in the cool shade under the trees at Dunrobbin castle when we pulled in, it was a hot day and we were tempted but Jessie was a little intimidated so we shifted down to the car park and dominated some piddly little cars. :whistle: :whistle:

    If memory serves me correct,,,, he said all up just over Ten & a Half ton... :Eeek:

    There is about just over a foot to open the door, and he can squeeze in...:RollEyes:

    Wouldn't bother with a bloody Smart car but be nice with the 1200 GS or 1300 FJR in there. ;)

    Looking at the floor plan it just shows the price of a fixed bed, which in this case is also the garage.

    The comfort, lounge space is just like an old Hymer Bxxx. Cooking area no better than our old Burstner.

    And forgetting the cost, you have to navigate it and find suitable sites.

    We've been to Southdowns a couple of times just for a nose around nice people. Beautiful vans and really well built but as I said before the layouts wouldn't suit us. Prices are eye watering and as usual everything is a add on which would add thousands to the final price.

    As for size well we're ex Rvers and have no intention of going back there. :eek: Can't be doing with all the pre planning and route checking love the spontaneity of a smaller van.

    It looks like he's got another car sitting on a rack on the front, or maybe that's just the camera angle?
