    We are about to " downsize" our van. If anyone is interested in this wonderful vehicle, it has everything you can think of, plus a lot of you cant think of.( except satellite). It is tip top for its age, we are non smokers, no kids, no pets, and it has been 100 % reliable. ( £ 150 k new). 55 000 miles, solar, gasit refillable, fully serviced, new tyres, etc, etc, etc
    We have been offered £ 32 k as a trade in, so if anyone is interested I will forward spec, photos, etc.
    I can then negotiate a better price so a win win situation.
    The dealer will sell for £ 40 k no doubt.
    PM me if interested.
    Phil
    PLEASE NOTE. "THE MOTORHOME IS NOW SOLD."
    Thank you all for your interest, especially Martin at Funflair for supplying all the photos.

    Already in the "for sale section". But as there seems to be a fair bit of interest I will be more specific with up to date photos in a few days.

    Nice van, we actually looked at this one 4 years ago before buying our Flair, we really wanted LHD but viewed this one the first day it was in the dealer and two days later we put an offer in, too late it had been sold at 3pm the same day it was advertised.

    The moral of this story is don't mess around guys.

    After we bought our Flair privately just outside Edinburgh we stopped off at Melrose site on the way home, we pulled in to a virtually empty campsite and guess who was there, remember the other van we looked at was in Portsmouth about 400 miles away.

    We are in the foreground and @gillnphil 's van is behind with its previous owners also on their maiden voyage.

    Well it's not mine but it is the same so I can tell you RWD IVECO, the MTPLM will be 6 tonnes and they come out of the factory with about 1200 kg of payload, last time we weighed ours coming back from a trip we were 5600 kg so still had 400 kg spare.

    Always looking but the truth is these older Flairs are a hard act to follow, the newer ones though very nice don't tick all our boxes.

    As funflair says, its 2005, but the 2006 model, on an Iveco chassis, 3 ltr chain cam engine. Weighs in at 6 tonnes and has a 1200 kg payload. The garage is fitted out for 2 bicycles and a motorbike.
