    We're just preparing an ad to sell our MH. We will put it on Fun to start with. Is it ok to use photos of an identical van that I've found on a dealer's website? They show all the aspects of the van much clearer than I could ever photograph them. The dealer hasn't got one for sale themselves at the moment if that makes any difference. Just want to make sure its ethical, etc?

    I was intending to provide a link rather than copying the photos.

    I would have thought any prospective purchaser would like to see pics of the actual van you are selling,lumps and bumps included .You could still include a link to a similar model as well ,good luck with your sale.

    I agree. Bad pictures of the actual van are far better than good shots of an "identical" van.

    No pictures of the actual vehicle for sale always rings alarm bells for me.

    Hi thanks all. Just posted ad before I saw all your advice. Will add some actual photos tomorrow. I'm just not good at photography and downloading pictures takes me for ever.

    Just read your advert. It may be beneficial to state RHD or LHD.
