Hi Maureen, The Scout is a great motorhome. The U shaped rear lounge they employ makes the very best use of space. We have had a couple of Auto-trails and never ben disapointed. And on a Merc as well:thumb: sounds great. I bet saturday can't come quick enough::bigsmile:

All the best for saturday Maureen. The Scout is a very good motorhome so ENJOY :Smile:

Make sure you get a good handover and make sure ALL equipment are demonstrated and you see cooker, water heater and heater working. Do you have gas bottles? If not you may have to purchase these separately unless they are included in your purchase price. Make sure they show you how the control panel/charging unit/12v works.

If possible stay overnight at dealers to try it all out and any problems sorted out next day or failing that stay at local campsite or if unfortunate to be working, asap so that things can be rectified before the motorhome/camping season starts .

Maureen,

Take a video camera with you, easy then to look back at things pointed out at your leisure.

Thanks Val Rita and David for your good wishes for Saturday. We are excited and looking forward to picking it up. theres no facilities at the dealers to stay overnight so we are hoping to take it out the following weekend just to test it all and we only live about 16 miles from the dealers so its not to bad

I realize this post is over a year old, but perhaps thats a good thing for me as Im woundering how your've got on with your scout? I ask because this van is on our short list for buying, any chance of a report on yours please

Don't forget Con Leaky, sorry KonTiki also have the same layout. But a Scout with a merc engine would be the best choice, Autotrail build well and the merc chassis does not suffer all the problems of the Fiat.

Hi Maureen.
Envious......We have a good van at the moment. But our Scout (on a Fiat), will still be the van we wished we had hung on to. Space, and an Autotrail. It was reliable, comfy you name it, it was good. Downsized, wish we hadn't had to though. We hope you really enjoy your Scout. Hope to wave to you somewhere. Brenda and Peter.

I've had my 2006 Scout for just over twelve months and am delighted with it. No major problems. The Fiat part seems to behave it self well, Ive just had the habitation service with a 100% satisfaction and booked for its 3 year and first MoT next month when I hope for no unexpected surprises.
Last season I managed over 60 nights away, this year I went away for 3 days last week and am going off tomorrow for a week or more.
A great van with loads of space and well screwed together.
