Ok, nice site guys first of all.

Anyway, discuss. There really is no better motor home than a VW.

Lets be honest, the VW base is way beyond anything any other manufacturer can produce and the resale and build quality go on forever.

Who on earth wants one of those horrible white plastic things with solid rear axles and several tonnes of assorted camping clutter attached on all over the place ?

How many people have blown their retirement funds on coachbuilts and then only managed to use them a few days a year. The magazines are full of them for sale with only a few miles on them.

For me and day to day practicality, nothing can beat a good old volkswagen. As a community, us VW owners are a bread apart from the rest !!

Atis, proud owner of a 1972 Devon Bay and a new T4.

Whilst my van is a boxer base I do have to agree certainly the T4 is tops, You get comfort, economy and it drives like a car, or at least my last van (T4 based ) did. What did impress me was the flexibilty of 5th gear which couple with a gentle right foot returned 35mpg in a coachbuilt

As good as a VW base is, I just couldn't live in something that small for even a two week holiday. I would rather have a caravan :D

My VW was around 17ft living quarters which is equal to, or bigger than some 2 berth c/vans. We caravanned for around 20 years before changing to a m/home, and kept same layout and really havnt seen any difference in living area space. Current van is a big bigger

17ft is a nice size Dodger as long as you had the head room as well, I also came from the caravanning world which is why I could not go to a small living area. Anything less than 17ftx6ft would be to claustrophobic
