Hi, Already today from info garnered in the forum we've established that the monocoques are just a tad too small for our requirements, we've a couple of deerhounds who like to get wet so we need a bed they can't reach. Anyhoo on researching one of the alternatives suggested by that helpful moderator chap roli... the Ravenna, we can see it certainly is available within budget. So being complete motorhome novices we wondered if anyone had a particularly strong opinion on whether to go Peugeot or Ford?

Thanks Stephen, I've been having a rummage around the forums & hadn't picked up on any particular issues, so I thought I'd ask. A mate had an old tranny van back in the 80's/90's that he drove up & down the country between here & London repeatedly without issues so I'm kinda inclined toward them too, but it really just depends what comes available within the budget to be honest.

Of the two I prefer the Transit, nicer to drive,parts easier to obtain, chepaer than Pugeot parts better engine.

We did have a Boxer before this and it was ok (2.5td engine) but not as responsive as the transit unit

If you go for a Boxer make sure it has the 2.5TD engine, the others were too small for that van and I think (but will stand correction) the Ravenna had been discontinued by the time the 2.8td was introduced but if you found one with 2.8 engine that would be an even better choice
