    Just driven past a long wheel base 4 berth Sprinter with a for sale sticker on it

    Had a quick scoot round and knocked on the door of the house ( friend of mine anyway so no worries )

    Guy getting a divorce, woman getting all proceeds from camper.... £4000 will buy it !!

    Its a 1998 in pretty good order. Clean and tidy on the inside with a couple of scratches on the outside .. Mileage is about 110k and he has FULL service history :thumb:

    Could not take a picture as no camera of fone on me Chaps name is Peter ( known him for 35 years ! ) and his fone number for more info is 07885171309

    Why ever not !
    Heres are mine too if you like 0781 8822887 and 01842 754415

    If someone wants a fone number nowadays it is easy enough to find

    And anyway.. just thinking about it..

    All the numbers are plastered all over every one of my web sites and his number is on his web site too !

    Not really a lot of point in saying something is up for grabs and then making it hard to get hold of.

    At that price I suspect the van will not be around too long so the quicker someone can contact him the better :thumb:

    Well I would agree and for a private person things are different

    But equally, given that just about EVERYONE sell on our details nowadays I think the days of bots surfing forums for numbers are now long gone..
    Why bother when its all out there for less than 10th of a penny per fone number ! ( yup.. fone numbers for cold callers can be bought for a £1 per thousand )

    Sadly they are real pictures !!

    I cannot help with further details ( as said I just saw it and stopped momentarily to speak to the chap.. But if you give him a bell I have no doubt he will be able to answer all your queries

    It does have fridge freezer, cooker water etc on board and the upholstery looks excellent from what I saw

    About the only minus my quick look came up with was a rear corner bumper plastic is missing though there does not appear to be any reason as all the mounting pointa seem perfect to me

    Might have just been nicked I spose

    It is going on eBay tonight

    Remember.. this is not about getting the best price as the lolly is being grabbed off him anyway by a nasty ex wife .. It is all about getting it sold and nothing more

    Hey John.....just had a squint at your web site & very impressed:thumb: makes me wish I was still into bikes.

    The only query is the "Pillion Grippers"......... do the women have short arms these days:Wink: or are they for the more rotund & lady riders out there?

    If the other half is going to grab it, sell it for £1 to a good mate and when the divorce all done and dusted, buy it back..............simples

    LOL !! No idea mate, but they are quite a popular item ! :BigGrin:

    Ray, her solicitor told her what she should expect for it.. so that would be another KAKFA twerp then !!!

    I would expect to see it on a front somewhere at about double the present asking price to be honest

    I would respectfully suggest it has more to do with the size and riding position of the person in front of the lady pillion, not really a reflection of her anatomy!

    Others used to tell me they would put their hand on the tank to brace themselves when heavy braking etc was being undertaken. The only way I could put me hand on the tank was to get off the thing and walk round ....

    I was glad of the scaffolding for the side luggage on the Bird - on the Trophy there are pillion grab handles on the luggage rack I can hook me thumbs into.

    By the way - I actually have rather long arms!
