I'm only writing this post as I would hate anyone else to have to go through what we did today
We went to limerick today for the 2nd viewing of a bit bashed up 07 dethleffs, we had looked beyond the broken bits and dents and had decided we would test drive today and go through it and make sure everything else was working as it should be and at an approx extra cost of about €1000 for the bumper and other bits we would go ahead and buy after test drive, So off my husband went with owner but struggled to put into gear, he has driven a van since his teens and still does, he wasn't happy so rang our mechanic and asked his advice he mentioned linkage or gearbox wrecked, we mentioned this to owner and he completely flipped said it was my husbands driving and to f**k off and shut the door on us. I'm still in shock at this behaviour and am glad we didn't bring our younger son and our daughter was in our car waiting. Sorry for longwinded post but cannot believe that someone could be that aggressive so quick.

Thats for sure Dave,
Look nobody knows what troubles anyone have, People are under a lot of stress in recent times, if you were not entirely happy with the van you might be better off without it. It is a good time of the year to be buying one and best of luck with your search Doreen.
