advice and opinion re selecting a motorhome

Evening All

I could really do with your valued advice and opinion.

I have a budget of £20K - £25K. I would like to find a front or rear lounge small motorhome for myself, wife and elderly dog. A lounge area that converts to a reasonable size double bed or makes two singles is perfect.

We hope to use it for days out, weekends away and maybe even trips to Europe.

Some I have seen so far are the Elddis autoquest 115 / 120 and autotrail tracker SE from the mid 2000s.

Are there any others that you think we should consider.

Thanks for taking time to consider and offer any advice that you feel you can particularly if you have experience of such vans. Unfortunately I have not been able to get up close and look at any yet due to our location.

We loved our Hymer B544. Our main criteria was for a drop down bed. This means that there is no bed making and unmaking every day. Bliss!

Hope you're having luck with your search Graeme. There are other current threads which mention such things as payload, having the correct licence etc.

Thanks for advice help and guidance. The stars seemed to align and have got a 2003 A/T CHEYENNE LB Se over here on the island. Well looked after, not used on salty roads, sound underneath and most importantly, the wife loves it. Can't wait to get out in it. Relatively low milage too.
Thanks again

How's that for serendipity?!

Hope you have a long relationship with your new MH.

I would suggest any Autocruise below an 07 reg as these were built by Autocruise and not disguised as Swifts when they bought the name in 2009.

If only I knew then what I know now !
