Oh yeah dead popleaer they are, we only went away form them by chance, we couldn't find one we liked so went for a front lounge, the van was (it turned out) to be a pile of manure, so I fixed it and flogged it, there were some issues with the Bessie too but I sorted as much as I could before selling it on.

I must admit it will be a heart wrench to part with ours. I might have to interview potential buyers. If they look a bit funny or I dont like them they are not having Hank.

So much history and memories. I would rather part with my house than that van.

Welcome back,

All still the same with us. Could do you a nice Frankia but not £15K Though. We are looking at panel van conversions.

Strangely enough we have been looking at PVCs. Liked the Rapido V55 and the Cathago Malibu was very nice but very not cheap! The browsing was prompted at the maybe possibility of selling van in order to move to Spain, and the what if we had to downsize thought re medicals for driving licences for 4.5t vans.
Result was - forget it. We will deal with what has to be dealt with if ever it comes. We love our van too much to part with it. Interesting exercise though, browsing PVCs. Still curious about how well insulated they are and what would it be liking sleeping near those rear doors on the winter. Any answers to that are all welcome.

Wouldn't heavy insulated curtains deal with that Sal

I fancy a panal van, not whilst we have the hound though

I reallyfancythe convenience of a van you could use for transport, parking etc

We have the scooter but I'm a nervous passenger

To me the downside of a MH is it leaves you without transport, it's hard to park in towns etc

But I guess it's a toss up between size when you are not mobile

Unless of course the weather is great for outside living

Hi Sal,

We have bought a House in Spain. We rent it out as a Holiday Villa in high season. So I would like something to use for weekends in the UK and for traveling to the house in Spain too.

I have seen a very nice PVC but its over budget at £30k. (was £27,000 pre uk referendum (its in Germany)).

Lets see...........
