    I'm looking for a left hand drive late model E690 or an early B754. I've spent the last few months trawling the internet without finding anything suitable, although I've missed a couple. Sold before my phone call. The continental websites are not much help now with the pound/euro almost at parity so does anybody know of one for sale in the UK?

    Maddie: Up to £32k depending on age, model etc.

    ScotJimland: Thanks for looking. I already know about these two at Brownhills. One of them Brownhills doesn't know anything about and the other is too expensive and RHD.

    Cheers

    Thank you Jean-Luc. I was already aware of these but had forgotten all the details so at least one will be worth a phone call tomorrow. And Bigfoot, I have my name down at Bundesvan, Deepcar, Hambilton and Motorhomes R Us amongst many others... I hope someone comes up with something soon as I'd prefer not to lose the coming season. It would be a pity to have to wait until next autumn.

    now why doesnt that surprise me.

    when we started m/h-ing we went to Brownstuffs at Newark with a list of 6 vans from the newark branch website.
    salesman said "dont know where you got this list but we aint got any of 'em"

    'nuf said :Doh:

    Hi Mike

    I'm really curious why you have chosen this model.. .. and are prepared to lose a season if you can't find one .. what makes it so special .. ?

    I can never figure out the Hymer model numbers, is there a logical way to figure them out.. .. length, beds or what ?
    The reason I asked was I have always liked the really old Hymers , thought of buying one with a view to refurbishing ..

    cheers

    As usual these things are often illogical. However I justify my choice as follows:

    1. Low level permanent double berth

    2. Full length comfortable sofa to lounge on.

    3. Kitchen some worksurface beyond the sink/cooker area

    4. Reasonable amount of storage but still miniscule compared to the boat we've come from

    5. Hymer quality and depreciation not unbearable

    6. I just like it!

    Cheers!

    Mike
