    Just wondering how little it would cost to buy a reliable euro van with either U shaped rear seating or twin adjacent sofa.

    Something that was tidy and had a few year left in it?

    Hi roadrunner

    It really is, how long is a piece of string situation ?

    I would suggest, do the sums, see what you can afford, always ensuring that you cover all running costs etc., then search out a model that suits you.

    Can't be more helpful than that I'm afraid.

    Any other info or suggestions could lead you all over the place.

    best regards

    Indeed,

    Before taking the pic I asked permission, they were very friendly ..if a little intimidating .. you know the look, scruffy, long hair, un washed, ... just like us fulltimers.. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    I checked the reg at the DVLA site, can't recall exacly but it was legitimately registered and taxed, ex WW2 ..
    Two owners.. MOD and the Third Reich .. :roflmto::roflmto:

    Depends entirely on your budget.

    Auto-sleepers do a conversion called Legend based on the Ford Transit chassis.

    This one is a 1996 2.5 turbo diesel with just 37k on the clock (hardly run in!). Its on Auto Trader website being sold through a dealer at £17k. May seem a bit expensive but you have to consider the extremely low mileage. You could possibly buy one for less privately though you would really have to drop lucky.

    rudolf the red nosed raindeer,
    is having a really crappy day,
    he just heard that santa's thinking,
    of trading in his lovely sleigh,

    santa said hes after a camper,
    its gotta be the only way'
    now rudolf is really pi**ed off,
    cos he really loves that sleigh.

    rudolf has just told santa,
    look, if you get your way,
    i'll burn down your bloody grotto ,
    then i'll bu**er off with your sleigh.

    happy chrismas rudolf.
