    Hi,

    I've been offered a '73 commervan for free that has been sitting in a barn for 13 years. It's in France so I am having to spend about £800 on picking it up & a lot of time & effort. She has no rust but is without key & have no idea what else. Can I have advise from anyone on whether they think this is a good idea, my worry is that there is nothing that can be done to save her (or if there is it is going to cost thousands) and I end up wasting the money I spent getting her back to the UK.

    Any advise massively appreciated.

    Getting this lovely van back on the road will take a great deal of time and patience, and probably a few thousand (maybe many thousand) pounds.
    It's very unlikely that you'll get it back, change the lock, pump up the tyres and get it on the road. it will probably take welding, fixing windows, etc.

    If you are ready for the adventure, and have the time and money then go for it.
    Otherwise, I wouldn't get it.

    Hi Darren,

    We are (permanently) moving to France in Sept and want to buy a camper van before we go, partly to help with moving many of our belongings. Is it better to buy in France, so we don't have to go through all of the importation issues later, especially with possible expense if the van we buy doesn't conform to French standards? Or is buying here, in terms of choice/literally 'being here' to be able to look at/inspect lots of vehicles, the way to go.
    We're going round in circles deciding the way forward!!
    Cheers.

    I would definitely buy in France.

    1. This will avoid having to import and re-register a UK vehicle in France
    2. You will have a left-hand drive vehicle, rather than right-hand drive
    3. You will have a vehicle you can sell much more easily in France.

    Selling my treasured Convoy which I've owned since 2006, being the second owner of the vehicle. I have self converted the van into a 2/3 berth campervan which includes:
    Fully insulated, carpeted roof, vinyl floor, Solid wood worktop, plenty of storage, sofa seat which pulls out into large double bed, leather passenger swivel seat, 12v fridge, Seperate 100a leisure battery connected via relay to main battery (so charges when engine running but will not drain van battery when electricall appliances in use), lights and power sockets connected to leisure battery, pull out Gas stove with 2 hobs & grill, 2 7kg gas bottles with regulators: 1 UK compatable & 1 Euro Compatable. Rear double doors give access to full height 'Garage' area with air circulating vent fitted in roof, this easily houses 3 bikes, surfboards, plenty of spares, camping chairs, tools, etc. The rear doors are fitted with a Kryptonite lock. Plus other camping accessories.

    I race mountainbikes around Europe and use the van for me & my girlfriend to live out of over the summer months. As of this reliability is paramount to us and the van has been kept in outstanding mechanical condition and will easily do another 100,000miles. All receipts kept to prove what work done. There will be a full 12 months MOT at point of sale.
    The van is a SWB standard height van with single rear wheels at the rear (G.L.W of 3.1T) therefore goes through the standard car MOT & is relatively fuel efficient. The engine & gearbox are Ford Transit as fitted from manufacture meaning good reliability & parts are easily sourced.

    This is going to be a bargain to the lucky buyer as you will struggle to find a van more than a few years old in this condition. Unfortunately we will be emigrating which forces the sale of our beloved mobile home.

    If you require any further information, photos or questions please do not hesitate to contact me on 07874875968.

    Hi there,
    My girlfriend and I are looking to buy a van for the summer to travel around Europe in and like the look of your van. We were wondering what you were looking to sell it for? Also where are you based for pick up?

    Hi all, I am new to this site, and have found it very usefull. I will shortly be selling my Winnebago Chieftain RV which is in Andalucia Spain. We travelled from Scotland and toured throughout Spain before deciding to buy a property in Andalucia. The RV is a big 'un , 26ft and has all conveniences associated with the Winnebago brand of RV. She is 30 years old and has only 65k miles on the clock. We have re-fitted the interior to a high standard spending quite a few quid in the process. Will be putting her on Spanish plates. Watch this space for more info or drop me a note .
