After having the Autotrail V line 635 for just over 16mths, we have taken the plunge and splashed out on a new 690G . Although the V- line has met our requirements for most of our journeys, the additional space and layout of the 690G just ticked all the boxes. With me at 6'4 the drop down lengthways bed sealed the deal, and at just under 7mtrs, with a garage and full bathroom, it will be ideal for when we travel overseas next year.
So as always I'm interested to hear what other owners think, and more so, anything we need to look out for. We pick it up a week Tuesday, and travel to Boston in Lincolnshire on the Wednesday for the shakedown. Its the 2.3 130 manual variant.
I don't mean to offend, but would it have been better to ask before you bought one?
Fair point! No offence taken Took the time out to read the reviews and did the usual research before buying. I expect there will be some owners who may have had bad experiences, but haven't we all at some point. Our previous vans have been Autotrails and some of the workmanship has been a tad shoddy, requiring repairs before we accepted the vans at Handover. I couldn't find anything wrong with this van when we went to check it over prior to signing on the dotted line. Our first German van so lets see how it fairs.
