    Stealth camping in France will get you locked up.

    The poster is referring to a camper van.
    Good luck getting that up a mountain.
    In the real world you can only park camper vans on approved sites in France.
    Parking anywhere else gets a hefty fine.

    On the rattler to Durham to collect a ‘66 plate Elddis Majestic 155 Motorhome with 3,600 miles on the clock.. the guy has spent 3 weeks in it since he bought it (a seasoned caravanner and Motorhomer with 45 years experience but now winding down at 75).. an absolute steal for £32k from a regular on a Motorhome forum I joined for some tips... I reckon it would been £42 to £45k from a dealer

    Had it all checked and will give it a good look over today before parting with the cash but it seems totally legit.. the guy has lots of history, and too much cash it seems

    Had it habchecked .. all good

    Seemed like a waste of £199 but you can’t be too careful can you

    For that money i'd have experts checking everything.
    Did you get it?

    I did... it's totally brand new... super chuffed. Fridge, Awning, Cooker, Shower never used... the guy is 75 and told me "it was a waste of money really"

    The guy even offered me the name of the guy who had bid £3k higher after I had said I'd take it... I am buying it to use it but it's a great starting point

    From a dealer I'd have paid £10k more easily...

    Just needs a service based on time... I'm time served so for the moment I'll drop the oil and change the fuel / oil filter and we're good to go
