    I read somewhere that because of the different variants of MH you will very seldom see one the same as yours on the road. Since reading that and being new to MH this year I have started to look out for vans the same as mine "ace milano" so far on my travels I've only seen 2 and both 07 plates same as mine.
    So does anyone else look out for vans same as theirs ??? or is it just me !!! and have you seen any ??

    I see lots of Rapidos that look quite similar, but have only once seen another 999M. That was in France. A lot have the same body but the windows are different places/sizes.

    Only ever seen one 584 with a gas bottle locker in the same place as ours, there often seems to be some small thing different.

    We have travelled all over Europe, always watching out for a 7 berth Miller Alabama States... never ever seen one.. Seen a shorter version ( 5 berth we think ) ... same name but that was about it !
    I know there are one or two built on the face lift Pug chassis but not the earlier one..
    Even SEA did not know ours existed !!

    We believe ours may be the only B654SL Starline in White in the UK as they are usually Champagne, have seen some other white SL Starlines on the continent but so far not a 654.

    We don't often see Mercedes/Westfalia James Cooks but at Calais aire we met a Dutch couple with a James Cook and had a chat as one does:RollEyes:. They were heading to the UK.
    We met them on two further occasions at Calais aire:whatthe:

    Of course, it could get to be too much of a good thing - watch this:Blush:
