    Morning folks,just looking for some information and guidance,I am looking to purchase an A class motorhome and I am looking at either an RMB or Niesmann & Bischoff Flair.I have spoken to a chap in Belgium who has an 1995 RMB with 75000 KM looks and sounds nice also looking at a 2003 PIlote/RMB i820, 40000km but with more goodies but was wondering is it a Pilote badged as an RMB with some of the RMB goodies fitted.The other vehicle I am looking at is in Germany and is a Niesmann & Bischoff, Flair 7000 i with 102000 kms on Fiat Ducato the RMB is on Mercedes chassis.What are your thoughts guys,thanks Ray.

    All nice real quality makes ...not sure what the position is with vans of this age regards COC for registering here, best check that situation out.

    Are they similar prices as links would help if you want a proper opinion

    Hi and thanks for your reply.As far as I'm aware CoC only required if 2004 or newer,however I may be wrong.The prices are as follows, 1995 Rmb 32500 euro, Niesmann & Bischoff Flair 35900 euro and the 2003 Pilots/Rmb £28000.Does anyone know when Pilote group bought over RMB ,thanks Ray.

    All you can do is go look at them, once you choose one get it checked out before buying....personally would go for latest van IF the layout right and it checks out OK.

    Are you intending to register in Spain or UK as your avatar says you are located in Spain

    I may register it in the UK as I also have an address in the UK trying to register it in Spain is costly and can be a bit of a nightmare as they change the rules and regulations to suit themselves as I have found out to my cost.The newer RMB has everything required apart from air con in the living area but that can be retro fitted.I have read that the older RMB were far better built and last the pace better.

    The Niesmann & Bischoff is in a dealers in Germany,the RMB is private in Belgium,I found both of them on the website,mobile.de the newer RMB is in the UK and may be the easier option as it is registered in the UK but is RHD.

    Newest would be my choice, but know nothing about either of them.
    Good luck.

    NB are very good motorhomes but unless it's specified when ordering from new they only come with one habitation door. My preference would have to be plus a driver or passenger door as well. I wouldn't be happy having to get out on a UK motorway with only the offside habitation door available. There are NB's about with two doors it's just a matter of locating one.

    I have a N & B Flair 8000iL, on an Iveco chassis. I am looking to sell it sometime soon. My wife wants to drive a motorhome but the flair is too big.
    45 k miles, Right hand drive, Nov 2005. The price is a steal for what it is. Its amazing and faultless for its age and I can supply photos if you would like. PM me if you like.

    It's weird how people can justify spending thousands on a MH but can't scrape £15 together to join MH Fun
    Never mind he will probably re appear when something goes wrong
