Hey it doesn't matter where you buy or what you pay just so long as you are happy Very Happy

In a nutshell yes you are right they are not popular in the USA, too small for the larger cousins Laughing but in Europe they are fantastic, all the amenities of an RV in a Euro size van with a VW powerhouse - unbeatable... oh and Winnebago build quality with all alloy construction... last forever..... go on pusser you know you want it..

My much loved VW Rialta is for sale, if you need an automatic van with the best layout possible in its size take a look at the classifieds..

I do - I do...believe me I do but if it is 82bhp or whatever hp it is then I know I shall be all day overtaking a bicycle. That's one downer. The other, despite your in depth program of emptying a marine loo I am still in shock from my last one. In fact, I may never recover. Sad

Well that would sell me if this one had a Formula One engine in.But I will keep my eyes open as I now have loads of time as I am tarting up the Possl with gadgets which I now expect to use for this entire year and I will pounce when something grabs me.

We are shipping our Rialta to Bremerhaven this summer for European touring (we had a couple of VW poptops shipped over & stored for this purpose in the 1990s).
We have a 2004 HD with the 2.8 V6. Plenty of power. Have taken it all over the States,Canada & deep into Mexico. Rialtas have enjoyed a resurgence here, paradoxically just after being discontinued, mainly due to their (relative) fuel efficiency! Smile

We have everything sorted out - the main source of angst for us at the moment is dump stations or "sani stations" and how amenable they will be to our 3" low-to-the-ground dumping system. We will primarily be on the continent.

IIRC, I think a few diesels were made for the German market, then the German distributor went under or something - leaving 26 or so early Rialtas in Europe. None of the North American Rialtas are diesel.

There are 2 good Rialta forums on yahoo.com:

You shouldn't have too much of a problem, however I invested in an extra long wast pipe, this has saved me many a time.... Embarassed

I think I'm going mad. Just spent a year doing up a Autohomes Bedouin. Every conceivable mod-con now. Reupholstered. Looks great.

Would be well happy (for some reason I prefer classic to new motorhomes - I like the character).

However down in Doset in May I saw a Le Sharo. It was love at first sight.

I'm on the verge of buying one, and starting the whole refurb process again. 91 in good nick, but missing manuals (does anyone have one?).

Am I mad?
