    Hi :welcomefunster:
    I think you could have a problem fitting 5 berth & large garage into 20'

    We have just spent the last 18 months looking for a similar van. We recently spent a whole week in the midlands visiting all the dealers and didn't find one. Most of those with the big garages were a lot longer than 20ft although there were several Rimors that may fit the bill. We personally didn't like the Rimors.
    We eventually found one last week on ebay and have now bought it. It's a Dethfleffs Globetrotter Elite, absolutely fantastic with everything we had on our wish list apart from roof rail which we are going to have fitted, but it is 25ft long and 10ft high.

    i suppose it depends on what you want the big garage for as many don't have much weight capacity.
    ours has quite a large garage although it would have been bigger if we had got a fixed bed version but 150kg is about its limit weight wise.

    We have a swift suntor (sundance), 23ft long, two beds over cab, two midway, fixed rear bed, large garage with 200kg weight limit, ducato 2.8jtd lump remapped, proper nice motor, obviously much better in the summer when the awning will be out and the "living room" outside can be used.

    welcome to the club you will not get much in to 20feet long
    we have a 25foot RV and we can not get what you want in this size
    20K is not a large budget for a motor home you could be buying an old soggy (water infested ) motor at that price range
    try and put as much as you can in to one £25K+
    ours is a 13yearold rv and it cost me £28K but it is as good as new :thumb:

    Why 20 feet?

    If it's to do with storage, buy first and worry later.

    Mine was only about 5 metres too long for my drive.

    Only decision them is storage or a new house:thumb:
