Hi All,
We are seriously contemplating downsizing from a huge Frankia A Class to a Auto-Sleeper Warwick XL.
This will be our 5th motorhome (2 x C Class, 2 x A Class) so you'd think we were fairly well informed but, quite frankly, never having considered a PVC before we feel like complete novices again.

We expect to view a 2018 Warwick XL in a couple of weeks and would like to be prepared in advance.  

Any hints and tips as to what to look for and what 'must have' extras we might be able to negotiate for.

Also, does anyone have a good recommendation for a 12V Smart TV.

Many thanks.

Hi Downsizer.

We changed from a big T/A caravan to a smaller caravan to a coachbuilt AS to a 6m PVC. I can almost guarantee you will walk into the PVC and gasp as the reality of the smaller size hits you. Don’t be put off but sit down as you would when relaxing, take a look around and work out how you will do things. The overhead lockers hold more than you think, especially if you install shelves, and it's surprising what you can fit in.

You will soon adapt to the smaller size and before long will wonder why you ever had anything bigger.

Agree completely with Tinwheelers comments,see through what it isn’t and see what it is.There is not much in the way of extras required with this van assuming you already have the bits and bobs from previous vans but new ramps etc could be a little bonus.As for tv,I am sure there are many suitable but I negotiated an avtex tv fitted onto wardrobe wall which I got and it’s been fine. 
Happy Warwicking!

Welcome.
