Good afternoon.

I presently have a Nuevo EK automatic; this is on a Fiat Ducato. 2017 with 21000 on the clock. No expense has been spared and all paperwork will back up the service etc. Recently fitted new Vehicle battery, new tyres and cam belts have been changed.
Question (1) any ideas on value if (A) I exchange it, or (B) sell it privately.
Question (2) which motor home should I be looking for; I still need all the Nuevo fittings and am prepared to go for new.
Wife no longer likes Motor homing so there's only me.
The one thing I would like to get is a Coachbuilt as SHORT as possible.

Many thanks for your time and expertise. scratch head

What’s wrong with the one you’ve got?

Hi Caraman
nothing, just feel like a change and to see what's out there that others may have investigated.

The shortest coacbuilt , if you're staying with AS, is the Nuevo so either get newer than you have or brand new.

I’ve only been away once on my own in the motorhome.  It was during Covid, my son had been furloughed and at short notice he came home to stay with us.  My wife and I were booked to go to Brockenhurst for 4 nights but my wife wanted to stay at home with my son so rather than cancel I went on my own.  I managed a phenomenal amount of walking and cycling but really didn’t like being on my own so came home a day early.  Are you sure you will enjoy motorhome’ing on your own?

I’m the opposite, as much as I love going away with my girlfriend and the pup, swapping them for the bike and paddle board works for me  smile!   I wouldn’t tell them that though!!!!  
A campsite is never a lonely place even as a single traveller, there are always many people happy to chat and give a big welcome.

Like others I think you have probably already got the ideal motorhome.
My also is not as keen on the motorhome as me, so often I go away my own.

Like you I thought of changing to perhaps a panel van, but the cost to change was ridiculous.

One with a fixed bed would be nice, I will stick with Nuevo EK

Hi Eltel,

I make you and others right, its stay with the Nuevo.

I can't be fussed with all the roof raising and as I am now using the MH less than usual it's nice to have the room and all the boys' toys.

Many thanks all
