Well we went out and grabbed a 2012 model 18.57-5 OB, was looking for bunks but kids said they would be fine in the double.
We got it from Caravanland and I must mention that the salesman Ken was one of the best I have dealt with ever, very helpful and not pushy and he remembered things that I would have forgot when writing up the sale , like changing the plug over to a flat Seven pin with a separate Anderson plug.

It is very stock standard and credit to the previous owner if they used it they were very good at cleaning, looking in and under the van I could not fine one spot of dirt (it really does look brand new)

Looks like a good buy.

Have fun with the planning and enjoy the "no wait" many have had to endure.

nice
yes, Ken is a great guy, have dealt with him for ours

now, you just have to go to the "Toy Shop" at Caravanland, and get.................
privacy screens, as well as the covers........... - get the to fit them, lots have tried (and mine failed)

I thought the 2012's came with LED already.......... bright white one side, dull blue the other...........
