Hi Paul

You will get mixed responses as with all motorhomes (just like cars housebuilders etc) there are differing opinions and perceptions. Elddis are considered entry level and the price reflects this. Some say british built are awful but just search the forums to see problems with all Van's.

Now onto your question. I dont have a 180 bit a 145 2014. Only had it a few months but have been happy so far. My opinion is hopefully any issues resolved with mine by now but by the nature of them I expect to have jobs to do as with any motorhome

If it's the layout that's right. The right payload, checks look good and the right money then its right for you.

Sorry cant help with the actual van but if anything else let me know.

Most motorhome owner tend to be brand loyal and although QFour and many other may have never owned an Elddis, they are more than willing to slag them off having not had first hand experience of owning one.

True, many Elddis owner have had problems in the past and some have been quite serious but these problems are not unique to Elddis and many of the thought to be superior foreign motorhomes have had their fair share of problems as your can find on many threads on the forum.

We have had our Elddis 175 for two years now and are over the moon with it so there are always two sides to a story.

As above I have an encore 255 from new now 3 1/2 years old and did have problems when new but nothing serious. Have now done four 3 month trips all over Europe in the last two years and have had no problems. If it's the van you want go for it any issues are easy to rectify but being a 2014 they should have already been sorted, I've also noticed that elddis spares are quite cheap compared to other Van's. You would also have the security of a warranty from Brownhills. Like all purchases you pays your money and takes your chance.

Our 2014 Elddis has been ok, a few small problems but nothing to get too upset about.
The latest little problem is the capping round the van that covers all the joints up is working loose 🙄
For the money, and considering the equipment level on the dealer specials, they are great value đź‘Ť

My pal has an Elddis ( not this model) and I rate it better than my Swift or Autotrail were

Personal opinion, I would try and buy one THIS SIDE of 2015 model with the wider headlights as a first van if you can stretch
Also be more cautious of payload than model on a 5/6 berth
