Hi I'm selling my 2.8 2005 Autosleeper executive.  Really reluctant sale but we're not getting out in her much and we're moving to a place with a covenant on parking her on the drive.    She has done 100,000 miles which is nothing for the base vehicle but seems to be a concern for potential motorhome buyers.  Never put a foot wrong and she'll be sold with a year's MOT.   I was considering  Motorhome Depot who are a broker.  I wonder if anyone had had any experience of them.  They do rather seem too good to be true.  Thanks in advance  Cliff

She has done 100,000 miles which is nothing for the base vehicle but seems to be a concern for potential motorhome buyers. 



For a motorhome that is a considerable mileage - most do less than 5000 per year.  With that mileage comes the suggestion that it has been used  - a lot - more wear and tear on every aspect of the motorhome.

so when it comes to the sale remember your motorhome will be in the market place with others of a similar age with half the mileage and  a lot less wear and tear and that will be reflected in the price  and of course "Motorhome Depot" will also want their cut.

It's low mileage Raymond imo. Still only just over 7000 miles per year.

Mine has done 1200 a year so in the grand scheme 7k is a fair bit. That is close to a typical family car nowadays.

High mileage does seem to be a sticking point when selling an otherwise top notch motorhome, as others on here have found out when trying to sell a 100k plus van.
Right or wrong, for myself, it was a deciding factor. I bought my van at 6 years old with 15000 miles on the clock.
Looking at ebay though, lots of vans on there less than 20 years old have covered 150k plus.

We bought our Executive through them and had no problems, buying through them just gave us that extra peace of mind and we found them really helpful (reading branch)
Sometimes higher mileage is better than lower mileage where vehicle have been sat for long periods unused
