    image.jpeg image.jpeg Hello everyone

    Been looking for a motor home and have come across one but it seems too cheap,2.5 diesel turbo,full mot 6 berth all working and in perfect order,but I'm unsure as its only £4,000 and that's transported from Northern Ireland for a quick sale ???

    Thanks for looking guys and advise would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks Paul and family image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    If it seems too cheap... too good to be true... etc...

    You know the rest :-(

    Hmm! What's that saying, "if it sounds to good to be true......"

    Where is the advert, and have you gone to have a look at it?

    Looks like a scam. If it is in Northern Ireland I suspect it should be Irish registered. Don't part with any cash until you see it in the flesh and check all documentation.

    Definitely too cheap to be real and not a Northern Ireland registration. I would pass on that one.

    I've just searched all of the images and found nothing. So I'm guessing that the actual advert has been pulled now

    Smells scammy to me. I looked at the pictures before scrolling down to the price. I guessed about £8-£12K

    £4K is too cheap to be true.
