Ken.

We have a 1956 Comet in restorable condition. We have recently take
out a lot of the interior, leaving the original cabinets and cabinet
handles. We have recently been asked if we would consider selling
it, but we are not sure how much it would be worth. We have the
original gas stove, windows etc....If you have any idea, or information on
where I can find out please let me know.

Hi Ken.

I would be grateful if you could delete my letter regarding buying
motorhome from
Germany!
Pleased to tell you  that I purchased a Hymer 694 from a private buyer in
Germany and am very pleased with it. I have saved about £6,000.00. on UK
dealer price and got all the extras thrown in!!!!! The advice from
your readers was invaluable, so many thanks to them. I found the whole
process easy to follow and everyone was very helpful. If anyone is on the
lookout for good second-hand motorhomes this is the way to go, no VAT no
customs unless under 6 months old or 6000kms. A 2 day trip to buy
using a cheap flight Ryanair etc. Got ferry back £120. MOT and new
plates in a week. When I got home I found out headlights deflectors
are acceptable. Good site to browse--
www.mobile.de. (similar to our
Autotrader..) Click on home and site should open in English/German, go to
motorhomes, enter make and model, and good luck. We are now looking
forward to full timing early next year. Happy motorhoming, stay safe all.

Regards Terry

Since the death of my husband in February I have sold my Swift Kon-Tiki. I
am now looking for a small camper. I should like it to be a diesel, with
PAS and FSH. As my son will be second named driver, and following a works
accident it will need to have a good laid back driving position for him,
as well as a short upright one for me. I suspect an AutoSleeper might be
OK, but it will depend on the base vehicle. If the mileage demands it I
would want the engine belts to have been replaced. I am willing to spend
around £8000. Does anyone have anything suitable for me?

I
hope you can direct me to the right company or person. As a mother of 3
children under 5, I took advantage of an offer to purchase a 1976 Stuery
Trailer. Although old, it is in good condition and was darn cheap!
Having years experience in canoe's and tents, I am having trouble setting
it up. Is there a company that I can order a manual from, and even
accessories? Any direction you can give me would be great. I am looking
forward to getting my kids out and travelling.

Thanks

Hi

We are about to buy our first motor home and have seen a Talbot express (D
reg) that we like. It was made in 1985 and has a petrol engine. I have
been searching and searching the internet for information about various
models of campervan but there appears to be nothing out there. If anyone
has got any advice about buying a Talbot I would be very grateful to hear
from you.

there so come on and help Jane

Hi
Ken,

I am currently a motorhome owner in South Africa and belong to MCSA
(Motorhome Club of
S.A.)
We are currently organising a trip to the
UK
for the British GP at Silverstone where we have family, but from there
we have booked to fly to France to watch the last 5 days of Tour de
France. I have enquired locally with my travel agent who seems to think
Ashton camper hire in Paris will be able to help us at approx. 160
euros per day. I wonder if you would be able to help us with any other
options or info on other hire companies (not sure if UK companies would be
an option) as well as camp sites and camp regulations from Bordeaux to
Paris. We have never motorhomed in Europe before.

Hope you will be able to help us novices and it will not be too much
trouble.

Thank You

Dear Ken

Does anyone know how I can find out about storing a campervan in France
especially at airports as we would like to fly over and pick up our
campervan at a handy location to start our holidays.

Thanks.

Hi


My name is Zvika, I bought recently a motorcaravan. My plan is to travel
from Germany to the Scandinavian in order to stay there for several month.
Unfortunately I have no idea how to plan the nicest route. Can someone
help me with suggestions about the most interesting route from Frankfurt
to Hanover or Hamburg. It can be along the Rain or through
Berlin on the other side.

Many thanks

Hi Everyone,

Having obtained free return flights for a 4-day break at the end of
September 2003 to Madrid my partner and I came up with this wonderful idea
that to hire a Motorhome (all we needed was somewhere to sleep at leisure
and shower) would give us the freedom of travelling with no time
constraints and seeing a lot more of the the country instead of doing the
"hotel holiday". Having spent time on the web to try and hire a Motorhome
from Madrid (airport) it would appear that "our idea" is a bit of a
non-starter. Can anyone tell us whether it is possible to hire a motorhome
in Madrid and whether it is a practical idea. All sensible suggestions
welcome and appreciated.

Hi

Someone asked about secure storage near Basingstoke. Have you
considered putting your van on, say, a farm so that you can use your van
as a weekend cottage? Perhaps on the edge of a village, somewhere
nice? I've popped into the village pub in the past. Asked
around for a farmer who might be amenable. Usually found one.
If not the next pub may find you somewhere.

Dave
