Just considering buying our first motorhome. We need to hire one first though - looking to do that at the end of March.
We visited the Scottish Motorhome Show yesterday ... we were like kids at Disneyland!
We’ve decided on our ideal van (and plan to hire the exact model next month) - an Elddis 145.
We’ve found a few online - all in England (we’re in Edinburgh) 🙄, but I’ve noticed some discrepancies in the pictures and stats.
Basically, the lengths are quoted as 6.47, 6.24, and 6.25 for 145s, and 5.36 for a 145 Majestic. Can anyone enlighten me? Is the Majestic different? It seems to have one less window than the 145. Might the differences in length for the 145 be because of boxes/bike racks?
Anyone have a 145? Any points of things to look out for? Pros & cons of this model?
Next question concerns budgeting.
What do I need to budget for when buying? Cost of van, insurance, tax, fuel, and breakdown cover. Anything else right away?
For trips - gas canisters, pitch costs, fuel. What else?
Thanks in advance! 🙏
