What would you like to know?

The B544 is a good, sturdy van. Nice layout although maybe a bit lacking in storage for me personally. I don't know much about the B514.

I don't know what secondhand prices are like in the Algarve but think in the UK you would struggle to get a van in good condition on that budget

We sold our property in the Algarve after Brexit and when hubby had a stroke. We would drive over in the MH. We still go regularly and stay with friends. I have never seen a Hymer, Hobby or Cathago for sale. We had a Rapido for a while and that was the easiest to get bits for and servicing etc. No one wanted to touch the Hobby or Cathago. Things are changing rapidly in the Algarve and the number of MHs have increased beyond belief. They are parked up everywhere and not always popular. The Brits are overtaking the Dutch these days. Have you thought about the Silver Coast I actually prefer it nowadays, 230km plus of beaches and glorious scenery. Much less commercialised with some pretty sites. Looking for a van you could try a wanted advert in the right places, the weekly ā€œAlgarve Residentā€ is available on line and often ex-pats sell their MHs - no need for one if you live there. !!
