Not sure if its ok tgos is up here. If not please move to where it can go.
Due to having grandchildren and wanting bigger model like nuevo es 4 berth we are sadly going to sell our beloved symbol.
It is petrol which these days wanted. Year 2000.
As we were hoping to keep forever and hoped eventually it would be a fab vintage model we found an ex army mechanic setting up his business and told him we wanted everything checked and that any thing that might need doing done. Any rust removed and then rust treatment.
It had underneath checked and completely sprayed after any rust removed. So underneath fully rust treated. Side seal removed and totally replaced. While it was removed the water hoses checked and any that needed to be replaced were replaced.
Our mechanic ( 5 star reviews) mechanic did full engine check and advised new head gasket as evidence it might have just started going so we had head gasket and water pump replaced. While it was being worked on we decided as engine apart to get new timing belt. Then as one gear was stiff we had booked to have recon gear box and new clutch. We have decided next year we want a slightly bigger newer model so we have capacity to take grandchildren away with us but are going ahead with recon gear box , new clutch and clutch cable next week.
So can't think of anything else that could need replacing unlike other models for sale.
Only thing not working is electric water heater. We have always used gas which works fine. Been told it's just the element needing to be changed but we didn't ever bother.
It's had 2 previous owners other than garage.
Full service history and paperwork for everything.
2 sets of keys. 39269 miles only.
If anyone knows someone looking for one please put them in touch. There may be other models out there cheaper but they won't have had all this work done. Had we known we would want a 4 berth we would never had done it all.
