I wish I would of had my AS when I was in England. It is a lovely place to visit. My wife was from Torquay. Happy camping - never know - I might come to visit one day - still have a daughter in Cambridge.

Small engines is not the American way, can't brag about speed or power with a small engine, that will change due to new green concepts of using fuel. Distances and terrain in U.S. is totally different than UK, we visit dealers for warranty work greater than the width of England.

Thanks for comments - it's the cost over here -
We have an US ex gulf war command station, cummins diesel - great engine but guzzzles fuel.
Were all being conned in the UK by the government - Recent legislation in our county- they're going to charge us for parking at work- even though the company owns the land
We cant drive this truck to London otherwise we have to pay approx. $500 extra for one trip or an annual levy - Which isn't worth it Its getting worse ! The Government here has used the green issue as an excuse to squeeze money out of the motorist.

My guess would be the new ones, sprinter van with small engines.

From posts I have read in the MH section of this forum most seem to have 454 chevy or similar.

Maybe you could find one with dead engine and put in a smaller one, if you don't have any hills or need of speed, most have more power than needed for slow flat roads.

Given up on motorhome

Hi Ive given up on the idea of a motorhome -
we'll buy a trailer instead
We have a Military landrover 101 forward control Ambulance that'll pull it

I need to get in touch with an Honest Decent Family type Airstream Dealer who can inspect one and ship out to me in England
Want one approx 24-26 ft - In excellent condition
Interior renovated to tasteful standards i.e. no crabby patterns that makes you feel your on mind bending drugs !
With a plain awning thats in good nick
Oh - do these have generators on board ? That would be handy pandy
I suppose Im talking about an older model as the newish ones will cost an arm and a leg - don't know why I said that - Im vegetarian - it made me feel sick !
So - If anyone out there fits the bill - send me an email -
