    Bought our Hymer B660 sl from Nick Legg of Bundesvan a few weeks ago. Great bloke to deal with, very straight forward and helpful.

    Would highly recommend if you are looking for a continental van, new or secondhand.
    With the exchange rate so good at the moment plenty of good deals about and Nicks your man.

    Still loving our new baby..

    I'd agree with Mousy...we bought a Westfalia James Cook using his import service around ten years ago....everything clear and efficient....he delivered the van to our door....it was exactly as described.

    We recently PX'd the James Cook [ on the way home from a trip ] for a La Strada Regent that we found ourselves in Germany....once again Nick was most helpful [by e mail] with some very useful tips on how best to do the deal in Germany etc etc..

    Bundesvan does what is says on the tin...only better!(y)

    Every one who has used them gives good reports, but you can save a few grand by doing it yourself. Brought both our Hymers ourselves direct from Belgium. Current one saved 24% off UK list price.

    Thanks, I'd like to say sorry, but I'm chuffed to bits with it! We did act really quickly. Have no fear it's coming up to the start of the season and new registrations out in March mean more vans coming to market. Have you logged your interest/requirements with Nick? He seems to know when people are looking to change. Good luck.

    We approached him to look for a Hobby for us when we had decided it was for us ( 11 years ago ) . He said no problem and then out of the blue he e mailed to say had we seen the new MMM as there was a 3 year old one at a very good price with lots of extras . We contacted , looked and bought and still have it ! He made nothing out of the deal as he just pointed it out to us so if I was looking to change I would have no hesitation in dealing with him as I believe he has the customers needs at heart even if in our case it means he doesn't make anything on the deal.

    It really is such a straight foward DIY process, you can go and get one and be back the same day if necessary. Finding the right dealer crucial. Fun and games start this end with DVLA....

    I know people who have used Bundesvan and they have been very pleased with service.

    True but there are many who would not tell you as no money to be made :))

    Although we didn't buy in the end I would agree with others comments.

    I fell in love with a hymer which he'd already sold at the Stratford show last year. A few weeks later I noticed it advertised again and spoke to Nick a few times on the phone.

    We travelled to Torquay to view and he is a very nice, straightforward guy.

    Wouldn't have any worries about buying from him :)

    The DVLA together with the VCA and HMRC for us....all did their utmost to mess up our import despite us jumping through all their hoops and filling their paperwork/online forms etc etc etc correctly.:censored:

    Pleased with the result all the same!:)

    The German end of the transaction was faultless...everything the dealer said he would do happened either on or before time..completely professional and friendly with it.(y)
