    Weve done , weve finaly actually after one heck of a rollercoaster ride , found and bought our perfect wee moho, a 4 berth, burstner harmony, T625 on a 2.8 ltr deisel fiat ducatoonly 20k on the clock, she is in absolutely mint showroom condition, i can honestly say i was useless absolutely no good at all. Like a schoolgirl on prom night, all my research , practise at dealing with these guys to no avail ,the test drive had me gibbering and drooling , had to give the wife the big puppy eyes letting her know i wanted this bad , but i think she knew earlier when i was trying everything like a kid in a sweet shop,even crawling under her, in the engine bay was immaculate( think thats where i lost the plot). yes i ended up paying the asking price but managed to get them to agree to fit a twin reversing camera and a 4 metre fiama f45 awning , all for 23 k now i cant sit still , pick her up from dicksons in Perth on next saturday , so keep an eye out , im the one with the huge grin splitting ma face ,lol. Dont reckon on getting much sleep till then as i am worse than the grandkids before xmas. I can tell that the wife is secretly really exited but she has one hell of a poker face , i shoulda sent her in on her own and i stay in the car , we drove down from lossiemouth to perth, as we will next week but next week i must try to stay at the speed limit, might get rona to drive , i will be beside my self , or out pushing the car to get there sooner. Cant wait to meet you guys out on the road.

    It has been one heck of a steep learning curve and thanks to this site i have saved a fortune and gained a huge respect for other moho owners, i even managed to help another couple out today , who have just started on the great adventure of finding their dream moho, so am hoping they follow my advice and join this site, it was the single most usfull bit of advice i could give them , please excuse me for giving them the chck list i dloaded from the site, its been a huge help to me so am sure they will join if not already .

    We bought our Burstner t625 Harmony in February 2012 (when it was coming up to 9 years old), as a stop-gap after our previous van was written off, and kept it because it was just what we were looking for. As I've written in other threads we haven't seen any other motorhome which would meet our requirements any better. Keep an eye on the seals to prevent water ingress, as the mastic can dry out, but otherwise no problems.

    Congratulations, at least you can spend the next two weeks buying all the bits and bobs to go inside.

    Enjoy

    Our first van was almost identical. It was so good we simply bought a newer version of the same van. After spendind 5 hours and a large amount of cash at the Lincoln show its still the best van for us two.
    A few things are better but I would have that 2.8 engine back in a moment.
    Still cant figure how to make up the second bed in either of them.

    Well done. Not easy buying the right MH from that far north.

    Take note of what Graham says. A good van but not without water ingress problems. Ask him where his has leaked, chances yours will but if you catch it early it's no problem.
