Congratulations. Hope it is a good one. Are you buying private or dealer.?
Please don't take this the wrong way but have you checked for damp on the flooring. There are many documented problems with vans of this age from Swift. I was one of them. Please make sure before you part with your money that there are no damp issues.
I feel really bad raising the point but would hate you to be caught.
Good luck.

im a not so newbie
Does anyone know where i can get decals from,
If you go to a sign maker, of the vinyl variety, they should be able to copy any thing you already have.

I had some done when i was rebuilding an old jap bike a few years ago

Swift will be expensive, you can ask Ian in my workshop but your cheapest bet is a local signwriter, these days its all computerized and stuck on.

He would also be able to remove and fit new ones

Began with the purchase of our first, ever MH in 2014
I wave from my car if I pass a MH, my other half thinks i'm completely stupid, which is absolutely right, because none of you ' wave back !'.
Can't help myself and can't lay the blame at the M.H'er's who wouldn't expect anyone in a car to wave and receive a wave in return. You can't contain excitement !!!!!!
