I have had a 2006 E725 for the last 4 years. It's my first van and I have no desire to change it. 2.8JTD engine is strong.
I've spent 3 months in mine, just me and a small dog and been very comfortable.
Good washroom facilities, I like that the toilet has it's own flush tank rather than drawing on the main tank.
Water tank is right at the back and can make the front a bit light, but I fitted air assist at the back which transformed the handling.
No cab aircon and only a small fridge, but I can live with those.
Good gas locker and good storage space generally. Proper cooker if you like your victuals!
It is nicely lowtech so things are easier to fix than a more modern van. The furniture is much more solid than many vans I've seen.
I've made quite a few improvements to mine.
Make sure the cambelt and water pump have been done and documented.
Mine is good and dry, but obviously you'd need to get a proper damp check as with any van.
Mine is plated at 3850kg which gives decent payload. Make sure you have the necessary licence for that.
I'm daft and proud of it.
