    welcome to the FUN,

    cant go far wrong with a kontiki......we're on our second :thumb:

    if you're looking at one that old then please, get it checked for damp.

    you will probably get a much newer one than you think for £12k from a private seller but again ...get it checked, worth the time and money and if the seller is kosha they wont mind.

    if it has damp you have a real problem and can be very expensive if not impossible to repair.

    usual telltales are water marks and staining near the wall/roof joints and around the windows/rooflights. it may also smell musty.

    good luck in your search

    john.

    Don't overlook Barons/Discovery at Coppull. We bought from there and got top quality service.
