    Best advice I can give you is go to a funster meet and bring plenty oatcakes. Funsters are easily bribed with oatcakes, cheese and bacon :winky:

    Hello me duck, please don't bring me oatcakes, just the cheese and bacon LOL

    I may not be fond of (Staffs) oatcakes - but I am fond of a nice bit of Spode or Wedgwood - old stuff will do, really old stuff even - so I'll be happy if you substitute that. My wants are simple ...... :ROFLMAO:

    Oh come on, give us some clues! Like how much are 'we' spending? Obviously, as little as possible, that's everyone's ambition - but within a range of what ? to what ?

    And do we intend to always have electric hook-up and stay on sites, or are we intending to wild and staying on aires in France?

    All of em have a minimum of 2 belted seats, in t' front, or did you mean 2 EXTRA belted seats?

    Do you want an overcab/Luton bed, or make up the lounge seats into a bed every night, or a fixed bed? Are you very tall, is your girth larger than normal? Not being size-ist, but dimensions of beds and bathrooms, and the willingness/ability to climb ladders, all come into it.

    Any pets to carry - a St Bernard or Chihuahua?

    Cooking requirements - do you want a full stove with grill and oven, or just a hob? (some foreign vans don't come with ovens or grills as standard)

    Could be worth looking at 2000/2004 cica Hymer 584 or 544 would have most of what you want around the right price Nd good storage.
