    We thought a needs we simple.

    Retire and then change the motorhome.

    Retirement that was easy but the later....

    All we want is the following:
    LHD
    Parallel bench seats along sides
    Large Garage
    Fixed Rear Double Bed over garage

    Apart from the odd Rv we cannot find any m/h that meets these simple 4 requirements. 3 out of 4 yes but not 4/4.

    I am sure someone out there has seen one?

    Motorhomes are a compromise, maybe you should rewrite your tick list.

    Can't believe you haven't found anything that you like.

    We have a long tick list and narrowed it down to just 4 MUST haves.

    But nothing we have seen in the UK or abroad actually has the set up. We can get 3/4 but all 4 needs we feel are not negotiable.

    Plenty of caravans have the layout we need (and we have one of those aswell), but to date no m/h.

    Still we live in hope.....

    It should not be too hard, it will be the LHD that trips you up over here. Plenty of RHD meet your other three requirements. Notably the Auto-trail Chieftain-G [​IMG] I am sure there will be similar LHD models on the continent, If LHD is important, why not pop over to visit a few French or German Dealers or even take in a show, I am sure you will find what you want.

    Hi,

    As Jim says its the LHD option that is the problem. I have a Kontiki that nearly fits the bill but RHD!

    The other problem you will have with bench seats is seat belts.
