Some I reckon just chance it. Buy it cheap and pluck a price out the air. And hope for the best . Its been on nearly a month and no bites .

For me it would need to be 20k max .

This one sold as predicted .. advertised for only 3 days.
Looks Good But
7 Berth
it’s drivable on a normal car license, as it’s in the 3500kg class, no special requirements needed.

Yeah but then it is 30 years old and it's previous owners have managed to use it. It doesn't have seatbelts for 7 so whilst it might sleep 7 it can't travel 7. But that's fairly typical even with newer vans .

But it was in exceptionally good condition, rwd, lhd ...hard to go wrong really. And easily up plated to 4200kg as that's how they came out the factory.

The downside to travelling at this time of year is the feckin bugs .... I'm being bitten by things I can't see .. I'm covered in itchy bites. And then you've other things you definitely can see. Huge big flying buzzing things that look like bees but just black and about 3/4 times the size of a large bumblebee. Then there's things that look like big crickets or locusts , weird moth like things that are about 2 inches long that seem to find their way in to the van despite the flyscreens etc. . And it's that feckin warm your sleeping without covers so I've got bites literally everywhere.


Not keen on it at all. Give me winter travel anytime

Eat marmite. In the summer you moan about the heat and the bugs. In the winter you moan about the cold and wet. I think you may be going soft in your middle age.;);););):ROFLMAO:

I like a happy medium 😁🤣

Anyway I'm normally in Scotland in the summer. Never complain about the heat there lol. This mid 30's is tropical to me lol. And it's due to get hotter , Greece has issued an alert ...

Inland is getting 42/44° the next few days . Could reach 38/39° on the coast it says.

Yeah these aren't mosquitoes as you can't see them or hear them. I'm not sure if these bites were from the beach yesterday and only now appearing and itching or whether they've happened this evening but I have at least 20 bites , mostly under arms , thighs , groin area .. all the worst places. . But no mosquitoes in the van .


I'm wondering if it's no see ums

I can't believe I've had this van a year and only just realised if you turn on the heating fans without the fire being on it circulates cold air around the van 🤦‍♂️

Fantastic

We had our van for 5 years before we found out the sink tap pulled out as a hose, it's really useful(y)
Had our van 3 years before I found out the reading lights have dimmers.

Get some anti hystermin pills, take one a day, after a week or two you won't notice any bites.

Likewise with our eura Mobil it wasn't till the week before we picked up the morelo that we noticed we had dimmers too.
So

What does the morelo have that you've not found yet I wonder 😁
