New to motorhome

Hi We are wanting to buy a motorhome and hope to view some 4 berth ones. Any advice for viewing would be greatly appreciated. We are considering a kontiki swift 640 2004 43k miles.

I don't know about the Kontiki but there are lots of motorhomes that have four berths but don't have four seats with seat-belts! You need to check that. Also pay attention to payload - particularly if there are going to be four of you using the van. Unfortunately many motorhomes have inadequate allowance for payload and even worse when there is sufficient payload, it is available over the front axle when the storage space is at the rear.

I guess you just need to Google four berth and approximate year to see whats available. Of course you can then narrow down with fuel and side drive.
