Hi all, thanks for the add.
My partner and I, don't at present have an autosleeper. 
But hopefully will have a ford duetto soon.
Never had a camper, but have camped in tent.
I do have a couple of questions though.
1, apart from the obvious rust issues to look out for, is there anything else to look for?
2, are the turbo's and automatics reliable?
3, when wild camping, how do you fill up water tank?
Thanks Si.

Tend to be biased being a Tranny fan but what to look at depends on the model. Turbos are fine,can’t comment on the Autos but they do have their following

Welcome to the forum!

Reliability? It's like everything else, you can get something with a history that's been looked after, or take a risk.... Are you mechanically minded?

Water... We use a hose at home, and if desperate when out and about, 5 litre bottles of water from tesco/lidls. Cheap enough to keep you going.
