    Mrs Busker is a very wise lady, joining here you can ask as many questions as you need, run different vans past the funsters, someone is bound to have had a particular model, check dealers out, good luck with your quest.

    Hi Busker

    As Carol says Mrs Busker is right (aren't they always) looking is nearly as much fun as owning, but seriously it is important to do your homework and get the right van first time.

    Welcome by the way.

    oooh how I love a good stock dealer list! Looking is fun. Owning & doing it is better. We're on our second MH now, and unlikely to be the last :)

    hi and welcome to the fun, choosing a motorhome is not the easiest of tasks as we each have different needs and expectations. The Motorhome buyers guide written and published by Jim will guide you through the maze of terminology and help you decide what you need. Plus it will help you negotiate a decent price plus "extras" maybe, you will save the cost without a doubt.
    you will find it in his "Shop"

    Hi and Welcome.
    I had lots of advice on here before I bought my van. Thank goodness I took the advice of " sit in the vehicle and imagine it's raining for 24 hours" as I full timed in mine for just over a year and a half and it rained a lot!

    Now I'm in between vans I've already had invaluable advice on types of new van to go for.

    Enjoy choosing. Sit in LOTS.
