as many will,i,m sure, agree on here,you will recognise the right van for you as soon as you see it.

Too wide a comparison with too many variables not to mention personal taste I'm afraid

Thanks Mick. I'm driving my husband around the bend with my indecisiveness and probably the park too. Have to be sure though. The vans are on different parks. The one I prefer is on the least favourite park. We keep getting drawn back to our favourite park but know we're not going to get such a good deal on there.

Usually in this order for deciciding:

1. Park

2. Pitch

3. Van

Van being the easiest to change (you can usually persuade the park to sell you an upgrade) , then change pitch and lastly change Park - having done numbers 1 and 3, changing the van seemed very smooth and the park couldn't of been more helpful I would think along these lines.

Moselle for me of the two. It seems higher in the range, when we looked at a Westmorland in 2010 the thickness of the work tops depth of foam in the seating and edging on the furniture all seemed better in the moselle. Not seen a Westmorland since then so things may have changed but I think the moselle is on a par with the Granada/ new Hampton.

it,s not being indecisive,it,s being sensible.i made every mistake you could make,and it proved very expensive,but i wouldn,t buy on your second choice of parks as you,ll probably regret it.
i,m a bit of a nosey so and so when it comes to statics,and still keep an eye on what is available,even though i am now perfectly happy with our pitch,park and van.believe me your ideal van will appear on your ideal park,and you will recognise it as soon as you see it.
i don,t know if your chosen park lets out their own vans,but when you do find your van,if your ideal pitch is occupied by one of their rentals,to get the sale, a lot of the bigger companies will move their rental van off and allow you to have it.
i know it seems an age to get what you want,but it will be well worth it in the end.

Must admit as others have said...the van is the last consideration...I'm sure if you have a look at Marianda24 thread about buying their van,it will give you an idea that site owners once you have said you want to buy on their site will bend over backwards to get you a van on your chosen plot
DG to my mind is a must ,saves upgrading later

My brother has same problem with flies in his Moselle, we get a few though, maybe not a plague but we have a Willerby Granada.
I'd choose park first though, see if you can negotiate a different van?? Its much harder to change park than change van when you're on a site you love you mightn't mind it so much?? Good luck
