Hello,
This my first post on here and I am already a motorhomer, now I am ready to buy a brand new Motorhome. hugegrins 

I am considering the Auto Sleeper Burford on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis and was wondering;

Is there anybody out there with a Burford and what is their opinion of them please?

I have to tick all the boxes and make sure I am making the right choice, and would be grateful for any valueable information or insights.

Thank You in advance.

Norrie. scratch head

Hi Norrie and a big welcome to the forum. I can only advise on the Sprinter chassis in my Winchcombe and it is absolutely superb  allthumbz

Hi Norrie, Thats a top of the range Autosleeper. At that price i would expect perfection. up! 

Some newer Autosleepers have had leaks so maybe ask for an extended warranty.
Its a large purchase for many people and if you change your mind it may be an expensive mistake.
Maybe a Motorhome monthly would have tested one. 
I suspect you could full time in that Motorhome and maybe thats what you want to do.

best regards

Mike

Hi Norrie.  Took delivery of a Burford Duo in March.  We changed from a Nuevo and we love it.  There were one or two minor problems but all is well now.  The Mercedes is a delight to drive, a little long but you will soon get used to it.   Any questions please p.m. me

Enjoy

John.

John,I haven't reached the post limit for sending private messages.

Thanks to all for the comments, we alreday have a 1 year old Bessacarr and it ticks all the boxes, but the Motorhome garages are lowering our trade in price so much that we have since knocked it on the head...we just cant afford to lose approx £1000 per month depreciation.

Hi Norrie, we have had a Burford since 2013 and love the trim and layout.  We bought it new and there were several problems with the build to start with but we have sorted them out now. We were very disappointed that a British built motor home came with so many problems and it did take a while to sort them out.  My husband loves the Merc - it is a delight to drive.. my advice would be to buy second hand as the 'little inconveniences' will be sorted.

We saw a stunning Burford parked near us at Llwynifan Farm in Llangennech, Llanelli,  earlier this year... But they only stayed one night so we didn't have chance to meet the owners.  Beautiful van!

Sadly we might be selling our shortly if anyone is interested.  Inbox me for details if so.  We live in Warwickshire.
