New member from sunny somerset

Post by indiantim on Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:50 pm

Greetings,

After a few disasters with an LDV, Reliant Tandy, and a demountable truck camper, I've seen the light.

Looking to get a coach built Autosleeper,  went to see this locally but it appears to be a body 10 years older than the base vehicle which is registered as a panel van!

https://www.gumtree.com/p/campervans-motorhomes/-2005-autosleeper-executive-/1222979182  vendor won't lower price and it's listed as a catorgory C insurance write off!  he claims not to be aware of it's history.

advice warmly welcomed.

Tim

From Warrington 

I don't think it's a 2005 model. That upholstery was not used in the last few years of this vans life

I would avoid this van, although I am a great fan of the Executive I would not entertain one unless it had the 2.5 td or 2.8 engine fitted
Trust me
