Advertised as Discovery but a Designer Not insulated and no heater but does have an awning. Not used at festivals for whatever good that is. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Sorry they say it does have a heater though it's not in any of the photos. They reiterate during the ad Payment - Pay Pal only. Note question and answer Q: Hi Do you have a figure in mind for a buy it now?? Many thank

Ah they have a Bay VW Camper they obviously have too much money.

Thought you meant the first one there TI and was confused.

Given that the second one is basically the same camper, with the probable exception of an awning, if there are no major flaws it is a bargain indeed.

I never quite know whether it is a good or bad thing that I have no room to store more than one camper  Very Happy

Not posted much on here recently as I recon you can all scour the major sales sites but if anyone is thinking about a Designer this one would be hard to beat for the price.

Don't know what was done by Riva but I would look closely at the plastic windows but to be fair to the seller he has mentioned that. Crikey it's on the border with South Wales don't know if I'm to be glad Caz Numbers is offline at the moment or text her the item no.

At some point after the 4, 41/2 and 5 were launched the Regency became the name for the 5. Only seen it used on early ads.

Should be a Riva Regency then.........

It does look good though. Has 2 PVC windows in the kitchen wall as well, makes it nice and light. Older ones are often dingy by todays standards.

The green door wall looks good too. Not sure if it has been repainted, but was refurbished and upgraded by Dandy in 1997.

If I wasn't married I'd put in a bid.
