As stated in the Introduce Yourself forum just starting on the investigation phase and have been looking at various online sales ads to try and get a feel for different model types / layouts etc.

Found a 2005 Fiat ducato 2.8Diesel Bessacarr E760 on Facebook Marketplace for £21k which I think would be the sort of layout, with the fixed rear bed, that could suit us.

No immediate intention to go and buy but would welcome views from experienced MH owners on it.

Price

Is the slight damage around rear light cluster a serious issue (if you look at FB photos)?

What would this be rated at and what sort of spare weight capacity would we have for us and our stuff (haven't got my head around what I have read on this means in practice).


Thanks

Since 2001
Don’t get me started on Swift. Used to carry a toolbox, screws and glue and that was just for short trips. They may look all fancy in the showroom with microwave, large toilet and the dreaded UK Spec just not very well designed and put together.

No garage also meant the bikes on the back suffered terribly and a cover was difficult to fit due to the rack being too high. The front seating area turned into a bed but it was very uncomfortable compared to what we have now.

Getting there!
I can’t speak for that age of Bessacarr but our 2012 is lovely. You will see lots of posts saying don’t buy British and my swift had problems but this can be the same for any make/model.

As for the damage I can’t see it as not on FB but there will be others around that price without damage. I would start looking at as many as possible, check its history as much as you can (hab checks etc). There is a buyers guide available which is a good place to start.
