    Just joined. Haven't quite bought a motor home. I am looking at a Knaus Van TI 550MD. Any comments good or bad?? I am looking for a van with front facing seat belted seats and a fixed (decent sized) bed.

    Cheers

    mazzaH , welcome to MHF. I see this is your second or third post, so you're doubly welcome.

    It looks as if you've done your homework, i.e. read some of the comics (PMH and MMM), joined Jim's brigade of happy hooligans* and presumably done the rounds of dealers to get your ideas sorted. I also assume, from the reference to belted seats, that you've got kids to tie down - good move. You might add mouth belts in due course!

    One early point is that all base vehicles today - Fiat, Ford, VW, Renault etc actually work. The van world sees to that, so for most of us it doesn't matter much, except for servicing and parts costs.

    A very important thing to bear in mind that lot's of people buy a house because of the seller's decor and furniture. They forget the furniture will go. With a van, the interior colour scheme, seats, carpets etc is really fixed. Make sure you can live with thisfor years, as you'll be stuck with it.

    Also, see what extras are in the price, because you might be paying for stuff you don't need or want. Also, think what extras you want, and what they'll cost. Both of these are valid bargaining points.

    Finally, think garaging and insurance costs!

    Good luck!

    * Some of us even have IQs breaking into double figures! You'll certainly get tons of help from the real experts, and you'll quickly see who knows their stuff and who just wing it!
