What about the Adria PVC offerings?Thanks Mel
We have been thinking if a VW size camper but with a cassette toilet
Reality is , that you still have to make beds AND a VW is north of £48 k if you want any kind of spec
Even a Renault/Nissan Trafic/NV300 or a Marquis Randger is still £43k,
So a <6.0m with a fixed bed......40-45k is interesting
I get the point about quality though
The other one was SunLiving....and Im an Adria fan as you know
You are so right, they are cheaper than a Swift or ElddisChausson 510 on a ford base.
agree it is a budget van, you can see how they are screwed together!
but so what , horses for courses.
only significant issue we have had is leaking window, sorted under warranty.
Chsusson dealers we have contacted say you have to have a habitstion check with the annual damp warrantry inspection to maintain the shell warrentry! Can't , or, rather won’t just do a damp warranty test,
none of them can say why ( after the van is 3 years old so all warranty on the vans workings expired) except chausson say so.
read the handbook, very slippery words, defiantly a chausson rip off .
But ford base strong and able and drives very well.
I really think this would be a much better buy:Thanks both for comments
Remember we are comparing with a VW (or similar) LWB camper van with a spend of £45k new, not a Hymer/Dethleffs/Burstner 7.5 metre 70k giant
So yes, eyes wide open on fit and finish
Also considering Sun Living S60 SP
V132 is on the listI really think this would be a much better buy:
A real feat of space-saving design. The T 132 maximises the sense of space for such compact dimensions by dividing up the areas in a practical way.carado.com
Excellent video presentation:
It is the equivalent model to the Chausson 514 and even by selecting most extras in the configurator, you cannot get to 50K€! With a dealer discount this should be well within your budget and give you years of tranquility.
Carado is budget AND high quality. No rattles, no squeaks.
Also, having the experience of both I much prefer the Ducato to the Transit. Apart from the Transit being more utilitarian, I really hated the fact that when you turn the front seats on the Transit, the bar to adjust the front-back distance does not turn with the seat. That is a dumb design made by people who never use the thing. I found the handbrake to be frighteningly weak in steep hills as well.
I'd be interested to know what is included in the 'mass in running order' as its given as 2550 which seems VERY low!V132 is on the list
I think Carado uses the same standard as the rest of the Germans which includes what you mention plus 75kg for the supposedly athletic driver.I'd be interested to know what is included in the 'mass in running order' as its given as 2550 which seems VERY low!
For 2018 it was this:
In accordance with VO (EU) 1230/2012 the „mass in running order“ includes 20 l fresh water, 1 × alu gasbottle (15 kg) and a cable drum (4 kg).
