I have asked Pat to handle the sale I think a buyer will have more confidence in the van knowing the Pat stands behind it.
I bought it from him in 2013 and Tristan has maintained it since.

The price is negotiable and won't be exorbitant.

Sorry one is rotated, I haven't used this function before!

That's the twin of my former van, I loved the layout, especially the fact that you can leave a single berth permanently made up down in the back. Great starter van for a family of up to five as it has five seatbelts. Should sell quickly, especially if the price is right. Pity Pat Horan never put prices on anything on their website or even in their yard, very frustrating.

Flipperdipper just going to say the same, identical in every way, furnishing colour, decals ( except we didn’t have back box, which will be excellent for extra storage) ours was also same year, though Dublin reg.
I loved it , great layout, decent toilet area. We sold it privately to a family of 5 , neighbours of a motorhome owner friends.
It looks in excellent condition, I hope JonMac46 you get a good price. Though as anyone who has changed motorhomes can be very disappointed at price you get through a dealer but buyers would probably prefer having some guarantee.
I think my favourite feature was the number of people who could come in for a chat and have a seat (9) though of course for travelling only the number of berths/seatbelts.

Just heard from Pat Horan that a very happy couple loved the van and have taken delivery. We wish them many happy years.
