My wife and myself are both in our 70s and we want to buy a motorhome to travel the U.K and the continent, what we want is a two bed motorhome with a French or fixed rear bed and a single or double over the cab but if possible the size of a 6 or 7 berth with a 2.8 engine, as we want plenty of space.
Thanks Robsmith but the reason I asked was because when you are required to renew your license at 70 some people do not want the hassle of the medical to keep their C1 entitlement ... so I was wondering is Bernardduckpond had done so ... then it would give us a better idea on what might suit his requirements
I have the c class licence, we want to tour and stay maybe 2 nights a week on site to empty the toilet just had a replacement right knee so automatic is favourite for me I thought a large engine would be better but welcome recommendations for all you experts out there.
I have a Hobby 70Q 4.25 tonnes with the 2.2 litre Fiat engine with the robotised auto box. Nominally rated at 150 bhp but re-mapped to 170, we traveled through The Jura, Bavaria and Austria with no problems on the hills, had the re-map done just for my satisfaction; yes it does make the longer hills easier but it's the overall performance which counts eg; better fuel economy with less throttle on the longer flatter sections. Before you jump and down about the Fiat auto box our Skoda is auto the one before was as was the C5 before and my Vito so I do know my auto boxes, getting used to the slow soft change of the Fiat is odd but once you have it's quite relaxing, we are on holiday anyway
