Good points: Too many to list! This van is watertight! Betty was our first motorhome and we’ve loved every minute and will treasure every memory.
Bad points: Lost 2 x very shiny hub caps (located somewhere on the A3). Missing plastic beading on rails. Oven needs a new glass door. The sofas require new upholstery – we’ve never got around to getting properly upholstered seats ( I made the current covers out of duvet covers!). Has one cracked bonaplex window (small located on the shelf sleeping area) glued so it doesn’t leak!
