    As we are thinking of changing our mh in the next year or less we have started looking to see exactly what layout we want, we have decided on that now. So now looking to see what make and model we prefer and seen this ad on ebay, not that we are going to bid on it as still to sell ours, i just dont think its genuine firstly i think his price is very low and the email address not sure on.

    I would of thought another £10 to £15 grand more at least

    If not more warning bells starting to ring £12000 for an 08 truck

    Either damaged or not the full ticket

    If its genuine nice find

    Myself tread very careful

    ======

    A quick look around has this model/year , coming in at £30K +

    Examples :

    http://www.caravanclub.co.uk/Carava...van-classifieds/details.aspx?id=385682&page=1

    http://www.motorhomesltd.com/mooveo-i683

    £12k ,Suggests the e bay seller is either extremely generous or a total con merchant.

    Also to e mail him , because he "stays " on his mobile phone ???

    Funny how the bold type with the email address seems to have a rather foreign sound to the language, as opposed to the rest of the description.......:winky:

    Negociable.......hola........:RollEyes::RollEyes:

    If that is genuine and kosher I would be there with my cheque book and so would loads of other dealers.

    There is also something funny with his feedbacks, shows 3 for this month but only one listed, click on the 3 and you get entirely different feedback, looks like a scam, beware and dont bother

    I've been keeping an eye on Gumtree and spotted three ads for 2004 - 2007 vans which were half the price of those on the dealers forecourts. I wondered at the time, but having done an HPI check on one of them (it was clear and no other nasty reports) I wonder if it's dealers offloading old stock or something? All three were in the London area.

    It's very tempting to go for something like that, but how do you know it's a scam - maybe I am just too naive!
