treetopper. Its good that you enjoyed your first van so much that you decided to upgrade the van and one thing for sure health comes before money.If you havnt got your health no amount of money will buy it back.

Very true Shuggie and you can't take it with you anyway. From what I have heard, it doesn't pay to have loads of money when you are retired anyway, so spend and enjoy whilst you can.

Shuggie..... have you made your mind up what you are going to do? i have been on the site and both the site and the van look really lovely, wow that view is fab, i dont think it will linger long, so i would suggest that you decide quickly.... it would be just awful if you lost out on it, if it is what you want.

I agree with what has already been said, if you cant afford what you really want then you really do have to compromise, as long as it suits you, then go for it, just think of the lovely times you will have with the family.

If you are going for it, I would go back to the site and negotiate hard, face to face, show them you are a serious buyer, but are determined to get a good deal.

Good luck with whatever you decide, keep us posted wont you?
