Hi All,

Now the money is coming soon..... So our purchase is getting nearer. I have been looking on Auto Trader and have looked at some MH's at a local dealer and have come to a conclusion that I like Auto-sleeper MH's. Over any other UK based maker. I like some of the Hymer MH we have seen but some facilities are Lacking in these although I do like the external storage boxes for all the extra outside kit you need... Hose, Ramps, wheel clamps etc.

Now I would dearly like as much help as possible about the Eton, Sherbourne, Devon and Windsor models as possible. I have also considered the EK Nuevo and Inca with end lounge, I haven't seen these in the flesh however. Does the Inca have benches long enough to make up single beds?

Auto-sleeper seem to have the right sort of lay out and good quality finish on most of their MH's I wonder how you feel they perform in everyday use.

Is there anything to avoid? Anything you see as essential you feel we need to include? Which base vehicle is recommended? Do many Vans have cab air-con? Do I go for an Auto? Once we have the MH we intend to use in on the continent as well as here in the UK, are they up to European travel.

My age range will be from 2000 - 2009 depending on price and spec. I would rather have a low profile although with the Serbourne we would need the over cab bed as the bench seat will only make a single for us. Although there is just two of us we like single beds and not a double.

All thoughts welcome.....
Thank you.:thumb:

We had a 2007 A/s Windsor which we kept for 3 years and only sold it to get a m/h with fixed beds which they didn't build at the time. I believe things have moved on now with their designs (ie fixed beds) so we will certainly be looking at them when we next come to change.

Prior to the Windsor we had a A/s Duetto and were very pleased with both vehicles and with the service provided by Autosleepers at their service center next to the factory in the Cotswolds (always a lovely place to visit). Perhaps I shouldn't mention it on here but there is also a very good, active owners club.

P.S. :welcome:

I ve a 1996 Autosleeper Excelsior Two berth sounds as though the layout may suit you.
One bed 6'3" one 6'5".
2.5TDI Diesel on Ford Transit base.

5 years owned no hint of major trouble prices vary but look round.
