Hi everyone........has anyone got an opinion on the above van. One is on
e-bay for sale and was wondering what to look out for . And does anyone know
the width of the van. The buyer says it is 6ft 2 in. Seems a bit narrow to
us.

Thanks

Carol & Jim R

I had one of those. I'd think it was nearer 6' 6".
The SE model has deeper upholstery. Maybe a few extras the basic model
hasn't. Nice van. Watch out for damp.

Basically everywhere there's a seam Jim.

Front windows, side windows, especially, rooflights, awning rail,
manoeuvering handles, etc. etc.

Use your nose,; if it's got a musty smell, then it's musty and it's damp!!
If there's an overpowering smell of furniture polish, same thing!! If the
floor seems a bit bouncy, anywhere, walk away. I'm afraid the chances of
such a 'van being DAMP are pretty high, so any price should reflect this.

Take great care,

Cheers, Doc.

Just about covers it. If it has damp, at that age it's going to be
uneconomic to repair.
