    hi to all on the forum, suppose we`re doing the same as a lot of people and thinking of buying a mh to do a european tour for early retirement, I`ve been considering a burstner 747-2 any opinions on these? I know there`s only going to be me and her indoors but we do like something with a bit of space and i`ll need something capable of carrying my motorbike which i just can`t live without and will give us transport when we`re parked up. I`ve looked at other tag axle mh`s too, they seem to be the best value for money second hand as they seem to depreciate quicker in the first 3/4 years than smaller mh`s. ANY INPUT FROM MEMBERS MUCH APPRECIATED. cheers
    ps. we live nw england

    most people i hve met with tag axles wish they had not bought them .bit more difficult on tight bendy roads. tendancy to scuff tyres (i do the same)also dont like the front wheel drive. lots now going for the iveco daily based campers .keep on talking with as many owners as you can. you dont want to buy the wrong camper it can be expensive. if you are thinking of long haul /time you do need at least a 5ton vehicle. i think more is best . have fun looking dont rush. see you on the road to nowhere. cheers alan.

    Don't listen to him.

    We were very jealous of the room inside a 747 that came with us to southern Morocco this year. Add to this the build quality of the interior. This was driven by a relatively young couple, bearing in mind the average age was 102.5.
