    Without wanting to start a war, which motorhome manufacturer do most aspire to own? What's your dream mh?
    Everyone's needs are different, of course; we wouldn't want anything a lot longer than the old Kontiki 600/5 we have now, but a bigger bathroom and a fixed bed wouldn't hurt. Oh, and a gurt big engine. And an auto gearbox. And cruise control... ;)
    Is there a 'best' manufacturer? I do like the German brands. Are they well thought-of?

    One that is paid for and doesn't break down or require too much upkeep. :rofl:

    Well.. We love our Chausson... But we secretly yearn for a Rapid 1001.. And a drive long enough to park it on

    For me it would have to be Concorde .
    the Chrasisme, Credo or the Liner.
    not fussy.

    Not interested in names, As long as it is well made with the right layout(for us) & a decent payload(1000kg).

    The best van suiting my budget and driveway space is sitting on my drive. Its a Burstner T821 Delfin we love it. Now if my numbers came up I would swap my merc camper van used for racing for a RS sport home

    We have been researching and looking at new panel van conversions..

    based on quality our preferred lay-out, have it whittled it down to:

    Globecar .. Campscout
    Pilote ........Foxy
    Hymercar ... Yellowstone

    Two German one French ..

    Probably be the Globecar , already well established with plenty to view .. afaik, Pilote and Hymercar are not due into the UK until 2015

    I'd louvre a nice mans biscuit aka Niesmann bischoff Arto.

    There's one at travel world but sadly I'm 30k short, anyone for a whip round?

    Is this auto-correct or some kind of motorhomer's slang I'm not yet privy to??

    1st choice if money no object would be a custom MCL.
    But in the real world either a Eura Mobil (best one I have ever had by a country mile)
    or a Hymer 584 purely because it has the best layout for me.
