New to Motorhomes

Post by Clifffan on Sun May 21, 2017 3:19 pm

Hi, we're thinking of buying an Autosleeper Clubman GL 1995. Has anyone please got any experience of these, we feel that it's a huge risk to buy such an old vehicle but it does seem lovely?
Thank you

Hi, and welcome to the forum.
Whether it is worth the risk or not depends very much on yourselves.
If you are reasonably adept at fixing things [or are willing to learn] then, provided that it is in decent condition, it could be a better buy than a newer van with poorer build quality, electronic this and computer controlled that.

If you are going to take it to a garage every time something goes awry, then you are probably better off looking for something a bit newer.

Hello and asof_welcome2 from Leicestershire, a nice van the Clubman, not that I am bias, it is a VW after all, so will go on forever providng that it is serviced regularly, I have a change of oil and filter every 3000 miles or annually which ever comes first, not susceptible to the rust maggot as such, , if it is  in good condition, engine and habitation side, has service history , they are car like to drive, very comfortable all round. Age isn`t a problem with these, built like a tank, also economical.
Good luck.
Regards,
Margaret

Compared to cars the depreciation is nothing, in fact many here would have sold secondhand vans at a profit! allthumbz

Lois2626. Give Geoff at NW Body Shop a ring he comes to Widnes.  If he can't do ask him if he knows anyone who can.  Can vouch for his work
