I seriously would really love an RV like that, but I think the Fuel costs would be prohibitive and many roads unavailable
If all the fittings work and it easily passes an mot then it is worth £4500 my thoughts would be where can you park/camp in it ?

If you have somewhere to "live in it" you could get a really nice static caravan for that money and a 2 bedroom 36x12 static would be excellent.The van is around 2.5 hours drive from my location.
As far as Parking goes that would be a hard one for me and I would have to try and get somewhere to park here within a couple of miles of where I live and pay for it (another consideration)
I guess in terms of "Wildcamping" it would be anyone's guess as to where you could pull up and stay for the night!!
Yup. If I were doing "vanlife" in the US, an old A-Class (Class A?) like those would likely be top of the list, but UK/Europe ... Just too bigI personally think that they are so impractical that I wouldn't even consider one, a) As Dave says fuel economy and B) The roads in the UK count it as a real no no, plus you need a parking place to keep it when not sweating as to how your going to squeeze it through the eye of a needle.

Static Caravan might be the go in a few years as a "base" as I am thinking that a cost-effective base plus a decent van will be a large part of my future accommodation arrangements.If you have somewhere to "live in it" you could get a really nice static caravan for that money and a 2 bedroom 36x12 static would be excellent.
I guess it is a matter of just applying common sense and realising you can't go down little country lanes in a big vehicle.The Bounder is a lot bigger RV than the one in the add , it is very likely already been downplated to 7.5 ton as that is what most gas engined RV s are sold into that market , the FREDs or pushers are usually full HGV licence as they can weigh over 7.5 unladen . The bigger RVs are a a bit restrictive , on site access , or road suitability , but the one in the add is much less of a problem . I used to own a RV (largest allowed on UK roads) , so am well aware of down sides, the fuel consumption on the one in add is around 12mpg , but majority operate on LPG , which makes them a lot more economic in the long run , the fuel consumption , even on petrol is a factor only if you move around a lot . The thing to watch on these vehicles is damp , especially if roof hasn't been looked after . They are ideal for a semi mobile living experience tho . JMHO
