    Just joined the forum and hope it can help us decide which motorhome to buy.
    Have been camping and caravanning for 35 years so plenty of site experience and knowledge.
    Decided to buy a motorhome and fancy a Knaus Sport traveller 500 so any help or advice would be welcome.

    welcome to the nuthouse. nobody can help you choose. only you know what suits you. My only advice would be not to listen to anyone on this site as they are all nuts and often under the influence of large quantities of alcohol excepting me of course.(y)

    Hi from Eastbourne and :welc:
    Best advice I can think of is "layout out is king".
    And only you can decide that. Think very carefully about how you intend to use your motorhome. Imagine it raining for days on end (it does if you intend to tour the UK). Is there enough room to lounge?
    It really is an personal thing and very few people get it right first time.
    Good luck in your search (y)(y)

    You are quite right.
    Reason for the wanting the small Knaus is so that it fits on the drive (and everyone elses) and we will be using it to travel in Europe most of the time so we plan to live in the great outdoors.
    Have seen one loved it but now cant find one.
    Just playing the waiting game.
