T6 camper owners/users

Postby Oldiebut goodie » 25 Jun 2018, 18:51

Looking for recommendations/opinions as to which conversions are best, Danbury, Autohausvw etc ( if there is a best ). Someone on here does hiring of them but I can't remember who.
Thinking of going over to the dark side :lol:

I was after the member on here who hires them out rather than a T6 forum - I can find that for myself!

I don't want to hire one - I am going to buy one but wanted the views of the member who hires them out as to durability/pitfalls of different conversions. He gave some pointers in a post about them some time ago especially from the viewpoint of someone who runs one of our vans.

Hillside are the only conversion that is not crazily priced,they are well fitted out very similar to the old autosleeper.
Ergo bibamus.

:ok
Still going through Hillside - prices are much the same as Danbury, Autohaus ones - £50k to £55k range but their furniture looks too dated even for an oldie! Autohaus is the most attractive conversion to my eyes.
Off to take a look at Jerba. :D

Same price range @Jerba - I am budgeting for £55 -£60k to get what I want. Autohaus are looking favourite at present but they need to get out of the thinking that 2 burner hobs are sufficient! ( at least you get a grill for your toast though :lol: )

The lower priced models tend to be elevating roofs and are without decent shower/toilet area. ( dog does like to get muddy!)

my Boss hired a long wheel base one before he ordered one, they don't make many a year so there is a wait I think, he could have bought the end of season van that thay sell off at the end of the year £5k cheaper but went for a new one, he paiid £50k ish a year ago.
