    We parked next to this in Portsoy when we were touring Scotland a couple of years ago. It really is very nice, especially for that money.

    Nice van Ken, yes it's on IVECO could be the 2.8 or 3 litre at that age there is a 2006 on mobile.de private sale for €70k so makes the price about right and won't loose much money either.

    Compressor fridge.

    Indeed it is 6 speed(y) better than the Agile in my opinion, most likely the same 3 litre 166bhp as ours.

    Yes a cracking van then if it does'nt have the Agile box, but the cross bed would be a showstopper for us. Compressor fridge could be changed out I reckon.

    Transverse bed gives you the extra space in the kitchen and lounge but doesn't suite everybody, reduces garage space though so that would worry me:LOL: fridge is undercounter in the kitchen so can't have much of a freezer.

    Nice van, it is the 3 litre 166bhp although he has chipped it to 185.
    A couple of locker doors have a bit of corrosion which I am surprised about for a 2005 model.
    Lovely van though, Phoenix know how to build good sealing systems on locker doors, put some good thought into it, unlike a few others.
    Perfect layout for us if we were going to live in one again, love the transverse rear beds, gives you a big separate lounge area, long sofa to lounge on.
    One owner from new, 8.4 metres, 6.5 tonnes, it will sell for sure.

    So I guess you've been on the blower to him Paul @CazPaul as his ad is a bit scant.

    Beautiful van - the only minus I can see is the under counter fridge. It’s the first transverse bed I’ve seen that’s ‘longwise’ on which is good.

    It looks really spacious and airy. We’de be eyeing it up if we were looking to change.

    Dont think the transverse bed is lengthways Geraldine, the pillows are under the window, theres no window on the rear of the van, the wood which resembles a bed head is just for decoration - it might ok for short arses to sleep lengthways:LOL:

    Nice, think the pinky red upholstery would have to go though!

    Yes, rang him today Ken, lovely van, he has had it from new, he did a factory tour before ordering.
    Too big for us but if circumstances were different who knows, we are working hence wanting a small A class with a big garage for short trips and the odd 2 week break.
    He has looked after it nicely, new tyres 18 months ago, ready to go for someone who wants a big tourer or if you fulltime.
