frankia 8400 gd

Hi'
Can anyone tell me if frankia built a 8400 RHD with wrap round cupboards over cab instead of drop down bed and twin rear beds circa 2009 /2010 as I am looking for one

Thanks

Yes, the drop down bed was optional. Ours had cupboards on either side and a drop down telly in the middle instead.

Yes, we bought a RHD, 2009-built, 2010-registered one privately, in December 2013 (and have been really happy with it, just right for 3 months away in Iberian Peninsular in winter).


It has wrap around cupboards at the front instead of a drop down bed and twin rear singles at the back. We had been looking for one for about two years and it came up at the right price. It is on a Mercedes 518 chassis, had done 8,500 miles, gives 20mpg and has a 1-ton payload.


SMC at Newark seem to offer better value Frankias than Southdowns, the other major source. PM me if you wish.

You may have already discovered that the Three Counties Frankia for sale is a 2006, rather than a 2009/2010.
