Check its payload - diffrence between wheight of vehicle and max permitted

if its not big enough you won't be able togo anywhere - some vans don't even have enough payload to accomodate all the potential passengers!

i don't think the autostratus range have brilliant payloads

however we have a elddis autoquest ( the budget version) and we are very happy with it - build quality is really quite good and it is very comfortable

We have an '01 Autostratus EB, the 6 berth one with u shape lounge. Payload, as with any big coachbuilt isn't great, but if you reduce the junk & only carry the necessary stuff you'll be fine. Our's has the 2.8HDI motor, very torqey, returns about 25mpg. Don't forget to haggle for some accessories!!

Ive just bought a 2000 model Autostratus 2.5TD seems to move fairly well.

most of the appliances work well on all 3 modes, one thing i cannot fathom is the little clips inside the cabinet above the internal housing for the gas bottle area, im not sure what they could be used for? i would have though some wine bottle holdrs would be a better option.

Hi Boingfc. Youíve just joined UKCS, I see - welcome.
Youíve added a question to a thread that died in 2006. Youíd be better posting a new thread just about the clips as Iím not sure youíll be swamped with ideas here. Our Autosleeper Clubman didnít have them, yours may have been added by a previous owner to hold the fresh water pipe or some such.
