In the good old days it was a common practice to buy second hand in Germany, there are many LHD mh's in Ireland and the majority of people are quite happy with LHD.
We tend to see the benefits of being LHD when in Mainland Europe outweighing the disadvantages here where our environment is familiar.
The KPH speedo is not an issue as we are KPH since 2005

When time comes to changing having a LHD opens up the possibility of doing a deal on Mainland Europe also.

As for the unit at Cara, perhaps it was a customers special order, either here or the UK, which fell through or maybe acquired by them from a German dealer for a knockdown price.

Things are very difficult in the new and imported secondhand market here. A combination of depressed purchasing power and a change in our Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) last year which put a 13.5% tax based on the Open Market Selling Price (OMSP) on all new motor caravan registrations, both new and secondhand.

remember! if you break a long arm mirror you need a left hand drive one as they're cranked differently for RHD.
I posted elsewhere but I found a French parts supplier and although they're a bit slow off the mark posting my right/passenger side electric is on its way now for only £125 inc delivery so much cheaper than UK

BTW anyone who has a KMH dial with spanner symbol with a speed range or 185kmh but no mph? I have a surplus dial that I acquired by buying a broken instrument panel only to discover it was not suitable for my Rapido.
I paid £25 and you can have it for the same inc delivery

This is the one I needed
