    Not really.

    The owners is alot but could be related to either having to be registered by dealer, or simply people not liking that layout.

    remember though that it is 9 years old.

    I would be looking to pay a lot less in negotiation but Hymer's do sell well.

    having had another look, do bear in mind that your sister might need to be doing some bedrooom gymnastics to get in to bed, I personally prefer a fixed bed for ease, although in typical compromis fashion, the bathroom looks great :Sad:

    hi shirl
    its not too far from the mark really in my opinion
    it has a few things going in its favour..

    1 it is a Hymer
    2 its on the Mercedes base vehicle
    3 its looks to be in excellent condition.

    says it all really

    IMHO this is very expensive, though in its favour it has a very low mileage but there are plenty of keener priced hymers out there for up to £7000 less.
    I would advise keep looking especially at this time of year when the mh market is very sluggish.

    Ok Norman, can you go and find them?

    Also inits favour is the fact its a sprintshift gearbox and a high spec hymer,,, lets see what you can come back with... make it a bit of fun,

    Ill look around now.

    so
    2002 (ish)
    same spec,
    as good condition

    Personally I would not pay that much for a van of that age, many would, but i have my top of the range Bessacarr for only a fraction over that and 3 years old.:thumb:

    IMHO, its expensive.... need to knock it down several thousands, and in this market they may well be able to.

    The only bed is a drop down, that's a big negative for me, especially if you come to resell.. Ok, it gives you more space, but it will put a lot of potential buyers off.

    Have they any experience of spending time with this type of layout, it's a lot of cash to spend to find that actually the layout does not suit.

    It does look very very clean though......

    Well I have had a dam good search and can not find anthing much different for the money,only older more mies etc a bit cheaper.So it seems to be priced about right :ROFLMAO: but what they are asking and what they get may be 2 very different prices ::bigsmile:
    The best I found was 4 yrs nwer and only 2.5k more which again I would think open to bids :thumb: also LHD :winky: which may affect price

    I wouldn't worry unduly about there being 5 previous owners, the van looks in very good condition and has a lovely interior, very high quality and design.

    I'd be more interested in checking on the payload and existing axle loadings, how it compares to other S650s for the money, and what kit it has. From some of the links people have put on it is apparent that there are some variations in the layout - some have the 'cupboard' on the offside, others have a settee, and yet more have the table/captain's chair layout. The fridge also appears to be in different places too.

    It has similarities with what she has already, which I assume is a layout she is very happy with. As she has a trade-in van she'll have to tough it out to get a good price, but if it is what she wants, and it checks out to be a good 'un, why not go for it!:thumb:
