    We only popped out to look at some awnings... but I couldn't resist a look around the used motorhomes and came across this lovely example of a 2007 B544 at just £31.499.

    Just 24k on the clock and spotless. Ginny loved it as you can clearly see. We left and couldn't stop talking about it so today contacted them to see what they might offer for our 2002 B544 Classic on a part ex. 14k was the answer :cry:, can't let our beloved van go for that. So yes, wished I hadn't seen this :(.

    I ran that one by Ginny but she said no :(. I wouldn't mind, we're hardly ever there anyway and there would be no grass to cut! :).

    That's a good point Lin, not had any dealings with dealers as we bought our current van private. Perhaps they would budge a bit but I know I should be looking at about 18k for our Hymie.

    You could always see what you could get privately for your van.
    It's always worth a try.

    If that's what you want go for it. Buy it, sell yours privately, and enjoy. If you don't your always wished you had. (y)

    That's a very good price, particularly for a dealer - trade in value is poor for sure, I guess cost to change is about 'right'.

    I have however, seen a few damaged ones come up for sale, that must ultimately be repaired and sold on....

    Considering the screen price, I'd give it a blooming good look over to ensure it's all ok...

    Good looking van in the pics though !

    I know it's nice, and we were taken by it but we can't let this old lovely go for that price :).

    it is all about the price to change really, if theirs is cheaper than you expected they are bound to offer you less, sell yours privately (with associated hassle) then you will have a decent deal

    or work out how much more than yours you think it is worth and offer them that, they may say yes (y)

    Go on, fight for it. Drive in with yours tell them they need to close the gap and you will do a deal. But be prepared to drive away again if you aren't happy.
    I love a good haggle. Looks a nice van.....
