Coincidentally I was taking a look at motorhomes/campervans today as quite fancy the idea. I started to look on the old and faithful boncoin, but was a little surprised at how relatively pricey they appeared to be generally. I have a friend locally with a VW campervan which seems to be very versatile and probably my ideal, but the prices for the mileage and age just seemed plain crazy. So @captainendeavour I’m a little surprised by your comment, as excess supply should normally drive down prices, but to me at least, that doesn’t seem to have affected the LHD vehicles…unless I’m missing something.
So after boncoin, I thought, let’s take a look at UK’s autotrader, and I was equally shocked at how much cheaper the vehicles were, which I guess is also heightened further with the exchange rate. But then I remember someone here locally in the village being given their parents motorhome (UK registered), but then having to give it back as it was too complex and pricey to get it French registered.
@Beerbiker are you sure it’s straightforward to get French registered. I registered 2 UK plated cars (one RHD and one LHD) when I moved here pre-Brexit, so I know how relatively straightforward that was, but now with a motorhome and post Brexit…ummmm. I would be very interested to know your thoughts and also an indication as to how much you would be looking for, as the fact it’s RHD doesn’t phase me, but getting it registered does. I think my ideal would be more campervan than motorhome if I’m honest, but depends on the definition of ‘good price’
