Уважаемый гость, добрый день!
Меня зовут Алексей, Украина, Николаев
Я думаю, вы слышали, что у нас происходит ... Я хочу поблагодарить вас и ваше правительство за поддержку нас в этой войне.
В связи с этим задумался о покупке кемпера. Естественно смотрел и на немецкие, но решил остановиться на ваших производителях. Почему - мне нравится ваш макет. (пожалуйста, проверьте вложение)
Прошу вашего совета - решил остановиться на кепмер Coachman Pastiche 560
Читая ваши форумы две недели думал что это самый качественный производитель в Британии
хотелось бы услышать мнение джентльменов эксплуатирующих сей девайс
Спасибо

Google tells me this comes. from the Ukraine

Dear guest, good afternoon!
My name is Alexey, Ukraine, Nikolaev
I think you have heard what is going on with us... I want to thank you and your government for supporting us in this war.
In this regard, I thought about buying a camper. Naturally, I also looked at the German ones, but decided to focus on your manufacturers. Why - I like your layout. (please check attachment)
I ask for your advice - I decided to stop at the Coachman Pastiche 560 capmer
Reading your forums for two weeks I thought that this is the best quality manufacturer in Britain
I would like to hear the opinion of the gentlemen operating this device
Thank you

And so Sherlock hesitates and eventually says welcome Nikolaev.
Is it the the best or even an easy time to buy a camper in your country.
Given so many terrible problems for all the people of Ukraine I think if you are able to buy a Coachman Pastiche 560 you should go ahead.

Good afternoon, thanks for the invitation
Picked up a few options from different dealers. The questions are:
1. So I can’t personally go to your country, I heard there are experts who inspect the caravan. Or if the purchase is from a good dealer, can you trust him? Perhaps there are service books about the maintenance ...
2. Surely, all caravans are registered for individuals, but perhaps there are also for legal entities? This is to the possibility of VAT refund when exporting
3. Delivery - this is of course a problem in general, I'm still looking for how to bring it to Ukraine

I imagine it might be easier to export a caravan rather than a motorhome (which is the focus of this forum) in that it isn't a motorised vehicle.

But that's just a guess.

Some you can, some you can't so err on the side of caution.

No, caravans aren't tho motorhomes are.

In Germany caravans have their own numberplate and have to be MOT`d every 2 years the same as cars and motorhomes.
Why do you want to go all the way to England Alexey? a lot of English people come to Germany to buy German made motorhomes.

Hello, JanHank
It's just that the layout of British caravans, I think, is more convenient, there is a multifunctional kitchen, and a large bathroom.
But after reading my Ukrainian forums - people are not happy with British caravans - they are falling apart on our roads. They do not have a frame and are held only by furniture, is that right?

On search sites I don’t see where you can filter - only with VAT

😂 😂 We had caravans for 30 years before buying a motorhome Alexey, all 6 were made in England none of ours fell apart.

Although you are very welcome on this forum, we are Motorhome owners mainly, for advice on buying a caravan it would be better to find a caravan forum I think.
Here is the caravan section of this forum

I'm pretty sure they do have a frame (base) in the same way as the habitation section of a motorhome has.

I do think you'd be better sourcing a caravan forum rather than a motorhome forum.

Good luck with your search.

Snap Jan!

We have lots of subjects you might like to join in with Alexey, nothing to do with motorhomes, just conversation about anything and everything.
Are you using google translate to speak to us?
Dear JanHank, hello!
As for life in Nikolaev, until February 24, 5 am, I was on the road - I went on a business trip to Kremenchug at the Danone factory (I am a mechanic, we service PET compressors). On the way, after 50 kilometers, my friend started calling me, then my mother, then my wife. Everyone woke up from the first explosions that the Russians set up at my military airfield in the city (there, on the Soyuz, my father, an Il-62 flight engineer, served).
What happened, turned around and went back. At the exit, sensory traffic jams have already been found - all those detected are leaving the city, at the place where the high volume was detained.
Arriving at the gas station - well, the tank of my Audi was full, I took a couple of bottles of vodka, two packs of Marlboro - here they came in handy
The problem was that my house was on the outskirts of the city, closer to Kherson, and when the Russians took Kherson, active shelling of Nikolaev was received. They winged as best they could - and artillery, and missile attacks, Grads, Tornadoes .., and aviation. All this flew, including in forgotten residential areas - in courtyards, schools, kindergartens, although at that moment there were no our troops, ordinary civilians. But as everyone argued - they won’t fly to us, they won’t fly to us ... But as soon as it flew into some yard, in the morning people loaded the car, the family, and left the city. I moved to my mother (she lives further away, but in the same area), and all March, while the orcs were standing near Nikolaev, one could see parishes every hour - I went out onto the balcony - Grads passed by you,
In March, I went to the military registration and enlistment office, but since I have asthma, they didn’t take me, and the specialty was not very interesting at that time - aircraft engine technology (this is my diploma) In general, shelling continued 10-15 times each day, and the next time he flew into my yard, we went to the dacha, not to mention burnt houses, broken cars and fires - although everyone was afraid of a fire after exposure - there was an opportunity to leave the 9-storey building.
After April, our troops entrenched themselves on the border of the Nikolaev and Kherson borders, and daytime shelling increased, although not always. But at night they bombed constantly. During the day, there were more than 10 arrivals at any time at a public transport stop, there are both dead and wounded. So Nikolaev lived until November, until the Armed Forces of Ukraine restored Kherson - after that the last visit was on New Year's Eve - December 31, Thank God without death
Something like this...
Now Ochakov (this is a city on the Black Sea coast in the Nikolaev region) is being shelled very actively, Kherson is being shelled very heavily. The orcs retreated to the other side, and there the distance is about a kilometer, and they are bombing, including from tanks and mortars. Every day in Kherson 3-5 dead civilians
In Nikolaev, sea water is now flowing from a tap (the water supply was destroyed during shelling, and our local assholes do not move). Denmark has come to the rescue, which sets the point of view on drinking water.
I understand that you, or your colleagues / friends, may have faced negativity from my citizens, but probably only women left for Europe - we have military personnel and men in a position from 18 to 60 years are prohibited for transportation. Yes, there are rich people, and semi-deputies, and other assholes who have left, but the main ones are sitting at home.
In any case, if you have an opinion about a good dealer, conscientious and honest, I would like to hear the opinion of the community
Thanks, Glory to Ukraine
