Don't own one yet
So I live in southern Spain with my Spanish partner. We about to sell her house and are looking to live full time for 2 years minimum with 3 tiny dogs before buying another house here. We want to tour around all of Europe. 15 years ago with my ex-wife I owned an old Hymer B544 for a while and loved the integrated body and drop down bed, though we only used it a couple of times before we had to sell it. We've been looking at a lot of vans online to get an idea of the right layout for us and was after other peoples thoughts. We want to maximise the living area so thought an integrated van with only a drop down bed over the front seats would be ideal as there's no wasted space with a bed at the back. There are very very few vans around with this design but luckily for us there is a very nice Bustner one locally in Seville like this within budget.
The price seems to be ok, I'm sure it will need some extras like more solar panels, bike rack, etc. Just wondering what you guys think?

Burstners are well built vans. This looks a nice van.

My only concern would be that the seats are very upright and probably not very comfortable for lounging although as the front seats turn you could just use those.
