Hello from South Lakes

Post by Stoocoo on Mon Apr 03, 2017 10:07 pm

Hi there,
best advice I could give anyone before buying a vehicle is - join a forum and find out what goes wrong and what is praised - and what the other owners are like.

Having said that - I found you by trying to find out if a van on Ebay was too good to be true! It was! And thanks to information on this forum I walked away smartly!

I had already worked out that an A-S is probably the best van to suit my needs and pocket - and they all seem to last a long, long time! 

I am looking to buy an A-S with four seat-belted seats (Talisman) - and am trying to work out what models this might include - there seems a myriad of options with A-S!

Is there any definitive list of models??

How do you decide on buying a van at long distance???? Do the AA do checks???

Any advice welcome

Anyroadup

Nice to meet you all

Thanks Jaytee
I was hoping I kept within the "first post" rules!

Wouldn't fancy being tied and dragged through a campsite behind a posse of A-S vans!

I'm exiled from Scotland!

But Google translate is a brilliant thing - just make sure and double check it - unless you wanted to marry the chief's daughter offering a dozen cows and a VW as a dowry!
