NO, we have an Elddis Autoquest 100 - bit smaller than yours. Our first MH, bought nearly 2 and a half years ago when it was just over 2 years old.

We don't spend as much time in it as you do in yours but definitely wouldn't be without it - and no thoughts of changing it.

Wife & I are MH newbies this year - bought a 2006 Elddis Sunseeker 130 (5 berth) on Peugeot base. Great MH for the price and would love to spend 9 mths like you on the road but need something bigger maybe in a year or two - need to sell the house first.

sorry colliezack only just read your message . we had the tow bar fitted at west country motor homes, nothing on it to say who did it. the year of the van is 04 , and yes it did leek and had to go back to the factory . fingers crossed its been o,k for the last year. we love the lay out of the van and it drives very well . just had air suspension fitted so shes higher from the ground now so no more grounding when we go on the ferries . haveing said all that ,we will not buy a elddis again . because of all the problems with leeks

We have an Elddis Autostratus CK2000 4 berth on a Peugeot chassis bought last september. We have yet to take it out for a trip but can't wait. By the way, I thought the bike rack under the rear was standard as well as the satellite dish on the roof.

elddis Autoquest 120

I purchased my Elddis in Jul 08. I have since travelled to John O Groats, France, Spain and Ireland. (6,000 miles) I blew the rear foglight in France, and lost the air vent on the roof, both of which I have replaced.

There are no leaks - so far - and I have not suffered any judder in reverse gear which I have had to use on occasion! On the single track roads that I have ventured on.

I am taking the van in for its annual habitation check in June and have asked for the following fixes:

1. The rubberised hinges on the glass lid to the sink to be secured.

2. Fix the leak on the cold water fill to the sink.

3. Replace the 'O' ring and tighten the loose tap on the wash basin.

This is my first motorhome so I don't have much experience but I have thoroughly enjoyed all my journeys - it is pleasure to drive - and I certainly would not have wanted anything bigger when I drove through the back streets of Barcelona and in the country in Ireland!

Nowt wrong with Elddis. We've had ours nearly three years. Had a good look at other vans at Newark and Peterborough shows and never saw anything to tempt us to change it.

Hi...
We pick our Elddis 115 Sunseeker up on Thursday.. Never driven anything larger than a car before. What I'm not looking forward to is the journey from the dealer to home... About 25 miles on M25. I suppose nothing like jumping in at the deep end.

Welcome Daps, hope you enjoy your van as much as we enjoy ours.

Don't worry about driving, just take it steady.

As far as the M25 goes it's just a matter of looking out for dispsticks, same as in a car :Smile:
