    Hiya all, I have read that there is likely to be a deluge of vans for sale soon as we enter the show season. Well, if anyone has a suitable van they will want to sell and wants a bit more than what a dealer will pay then please contact me. Our ideal van is an Auto-trail 700 because of the extra belted seats, separate shower, kitchen with work surface opposite the table and rear lounge.............but a Bessacarr E495 or possibly Swift Suntor/Sundance might do if it felt right. Something no older than 2010 I once considered an Eldis 180 but won´t now because of mixed ingress reviews. I have spoken to Tonka about his superb van but just can´t stretch to its worth. Any other ideas welcome. Beware I will get it thoroughly checked out before I depart with a dime, don´t want to waste anyone´s time, or my own, but we have the cash waiting for the right van at the right price.

    Hello and welcome... I don't think his is for sale but I have always been impressed at Busman's rear lounge van ... if you message him to ask what kind it is, it might be worth you looking for them for sale on e bay.

    Got to top right of this page and click on INBOX ... Start new conversation. In the box marked participants or something like that .. type Busman and then a title in the next box and then ask him what van he has... I don't mind you quoting that I said I thought you might like it.. :) Good luck.

    Be aware that the 700's do vary a lot...
    Even though they are the same model, over the past 6-8 years they changed a lot... Basic layout is the same but some have cookers near the door (better I think) others are behind the passenger seat.
    My friends have a 2008 model and inside is like wooden wallboard. Very different to earlier and then later vans..
    The large lockers like on mine, I think only came out in 2010 models onwards..
    Gross weights vary and can be either 3850kg, 4050kg or 4250kg.

    Good luck with the search. Any questions just ask away,..

    Gotta go. It's pub time..

    The Bessacarr e795 might be a better choice than the e495 in my opinion as it has better outside storage.
