    just purchased a rapido 690 low profile , we pick it up from Manchester 20 08 16 .........had it in mind for many years finally spotted the right size and layout for the right price .....
    Little nervous now that it is a good one with everything working as it should
    Brought if from a dealer so you get assurances it will all be working ....with a private sale I would have been checking it all before parting with the money
    With a dealer large unrefundable deposite handed over before the van goes to workshop so if anything did not work when it was traded in by previous owner the dealer won't even know about it yet ......am I getting paranoid ?

    Has anyone on here got a rapido 690 ?

    Loads on here have them, fine vehicle. Nothing to worry about at all. It may be the dearest item you've ever bought but if you factor in the value you place on enjoyment, fun ,happiness, pressure free holidays, trips out with loved ones, kids, parents , friends;
    trips to places past, reliving memories; you're going to love it, oh and by the way

    Just been reading "Jims " 10 things to do before you buy .......I have test driven other M H in other dealerships , but the one we purchased after getting home on the telephone we had not test driven ...silly really

    And although it will fit on our drive way until I retire we have a car and my works van ...they won't all fit .....impulsive .....I guess we were but if you think too much about the what ifs no one would ever do anything

    That's exactly the right attitude. Buy now and fit other things around it. You will soon realise you have done the right thing (y)
