looks a fantastic van, unfortunately its left hand drive, just dont fancy driving left hand drive.
and comfortmatic , after owning a proper auto and having to drive a comfortmatic bus for work I think I would prefer a manual.

We have an Adria 670SL, added air assist rear suspension earlier this year, just in the process of upgrading from 3700 to 3850kgs (v5 currently with DVLA) we upgraded to give us a bit of a margin when we go away for 4 - 6 weeks carrying lots of stuff. Large garage easy fit 2 elec bikes and the rest of the gear (just be careful as there is a 150kgs limit for the garage). Very happy with MH itself. averages 27mpg on a 2500 mile journey all different terrains, mixture of autoroutes, N roads and D roads.

Just about every European converter will have models with that layout. It has been a popular layout for a good while so you are spoilt for choice. But few, if any, British converters do them, they seem to be wedded to the rear lounge concept from their caravan days.

I would suggest you go for an A class as the cabs are larger and much warmer in the cold weather. Also gives much better views of the road and scenery to the front and side. Once you try it the C class is like peering through a letterbox!

We have this layout in our Hymer B678 and are very happy with it. But lots of others to choose from including Dethleff, Knaus, Carthago, Rapido, Burstner, Adria and Rapido.

I saw a Burstner i840 for sale somewhere yesterday but my history clears when I log out so cant find it today (may have been a left hooker though). We had a Hymer B674 which is similar to what you are looking for.

Laikia is perfect but 60k just a bit to much unfortunately.
Its funny when you are looking for this layout that you can find so few vans although as peterc10 says every european converter will have one , just not below 50k.
will check out the Burstner i840 .
thanks for your suggestions.

Are you sure you wouldn't like a LHD? Much better on the continent and will give you a much bigger choice of campers especially if you buy abroad. If you don't want to import yourself, speak to Bundesvan, nice people to do business with.

You will struggle to get a new one at that price, but there should be plenty of good late used ones available. My previous van was a 2008 Adria C class with that layout and I bought it for £30k back in 2013. P/Xed it for £28k after two and a half years and 15,000 miles.

Just search "Adria motorhome" in Ebay and you will find several that may fit the bill. That includes a 2019 Matrix 670sl with 900 miles on the clock for £55k and a 2017 one for £53k. Both may be reachable with a bit of hard bargaining. And lots of others I suspect if you search other makes.

I didnt think Bundesvan were still trading , believe they retired and sold the name on but googled it and its not working.
If i was happy with LHD I would have bought a Lakia from Camper UK , Stunning van.

They will always say that. If you are a cash buyer make the offer telling them they can have the money straight away. That may or may not change their mind, but you will never know unless you make the offer.

Carthago Compact 138
Hopping on to listen to the recommendations, because I want a rear twin as well. I was vaguely wondering if there was a list of models anywhere, because it seems so haphazard whether you fall over one or not. I like the Carthago compactline 143 and 141, but would prefer a coach built (don’t need the extra height, and found it more top heavy and creaky to drive, that could have been the overcab bed, though) the Pilot 650 go would do us nicely, or one of the Hymers. Not ready to buy quite yet, and need to offload the Carthago first. Not quite sure how much money I’m going to have left after the bank’s latest debacle, yet either. Or whether I want to downsize. Or go for an older model.

Little bit unsure of Burstner as I owned one for five months , complete disaster.
Loads of problems with it , electric drop down bed stopped working numerous times, gas leak, water leak ( engine ) leisure batteries failed and lots of other problems.
It went back to the dealer and we got a refund less £600 for our use

Go for Lhd, doesn't take much getting used to and massively better in mainland Europe. You can then buy on www.mobile.de

I like the Burstner. I know now exactly what I want, I think, layout wise, with the exception of whether to stump up the extra legnth for the L kitchen behind the seats.

Nice van,
Just sold my 2008 Rapido 986 M so would like something a bit newer although I know it will be difficult to match the quality.
Someone of Facebook Rapido owners was looking for a A class Rapido Merc based.
