Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Going from a Bessacarr E540 with loads of space to a more snug panel van will be a bit strange

Brave man, I think now is possibly the worst ever time to buy a van at all, prices are stupid, we wouldn't have but we really missed having one on the drive.

No pockets in a shroud Kev.

Not that Iíd need them, my good lady sees to that.

Nice one. Let us know know how you get on Down sizing. I like the idea of a PVC for racing around the Alps and ease of parkING on our cramped drive but I think I'll miss the space and storage of a 7m coach build. I also assume rightly or wrongly a PVC with a short overhang might have enough payload to take our rack and scooter.

How did you come to choose that model new MH over others?

Donít argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. óGreg King

Saw this in Moffat last week Barry, looked to be in really good nick, Talbot base, I have always liked the look of these, modern vans all look the same, no character at all.

That E540 was a very nice van.
