Yes, Barry, that's the button to click, although I don't know if it works if you are not a standard FB member.

It'll be interesting to hear what you think of the site, once joined.

When I joined I was contacted by admin who asked what my interest was as they try to keep the group AT relevant. Although previous AT owners are welcome to stay and impart their knowledge.

As a group I have found it helpful, getting and giving advice, but like most groups you get one or two planks

This one Cabby http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Autocruise.../182302494168?

Thats a bit of a curve ball. I cannot find anything much about them. Found this thread. http://forums.outandaboutlive.co.uk/...arasota/23983/ seems they were only made for a year 2005-2006 before being taken over by Swift. Get this though, they had air suspension and a 4150kg gross weight. I cant find any spec sheets but found this about the similar Autocruise Starblazer with the same 4150kg gross weight and its payload according to this document is 990kg! http://www.gocaravanning.com/motorho...zer-g_947.html

It has blooming diesel heating though. Not sure I would be happy with that.

Anyone know anything about them? I have contacted the seller.

Thanks for finding that one.

We had diesel heating on our last motorhome and was very pleased with it.

The new Motorhome has gas heating and uses alot of gas.I thought the diesel heating
was very efficient and never let us down.Some say they are noisy,but ours wasnt.
I would definetly have diesel heating again given the choice.
Others may have other views,these are just mine!

Are they not expensive to run though considering Diesel is double the price of LPG? They are noisy if your parked next to one!

The seller has not had it weighed, doesnt know how much payload it has but it looks like the upgrade to air suspension was an option when it was built. He sent me a dodgy scan of the certificate. See below. The weight advantage is all on the back axle where it needs to be. I just need to know what the unladen weight is. He says its on Peugeot Chassis though when I Asked if it was Alko.
