    Hi everyone
    Another newbie, arrived via motorbikes and boats and caravans so I thought it was time to get a motor home in the shape of a 2004 Geist Phantom with a rear garage.
    Feel free to tell me the good and not so good points about this model (Sprinter 2.7 engine)

    You have made a good decision....Oh and welcome to the 'Fun'
    A good decision because it has a good garage, which means that you do not have to live with the big awkward things you may wish to carry, like carpets, chairs, table and lounger. A good decision because like many European vans, you can expect a good quality of build, something you realise over time when compared to some other vans. Good decision because it has a Mercedes engine with a good commercial record.

    Welcome indeed!

    @rosalan - why the hell would you want to carry a carpet in your Moho?

    Only just got round to reading my 'Alerts' LOL

    @whoa - beauty salon and preferably a sports physio - better, more therapeutic massage than from a beautician !

    @rosalan - I agree - except we just use a Tesco's washable mat !
