new member in Scotland

Post by Ryan 95 on Tue Jul 29, 2014 9:46 pm

hi there, i'm Ryan, have just sold my car 'a Hyundai Atos' and am looking for a hi jet to build into a camper/day van for holidays, also will be my daily driver Very Happy Hyundai just wasn't quite big enough for my camping gear!

the reason i chose the hi jet is because i love the look of them, they're in my price range and are a good size, also being the age of 18, its one of the very few vans i can insure! Shocked 

i currently live in SW Scotland

thanks

Welcome. Depends on your budget, but when I was looking I found a fair few later Piaggio Porter vans in Essex under £3k. Autotrader is also worth keeping an eye on.

bought my 1st hijet today, now i cant wait to collect it Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy, went to Edinburgh to look at a green one, was completely rotten, scrap basically, so got straight back on the net and found this  in Newcastle, so traveled across, and bought it, only has minimal rot on the sills, at the rear, so i can 100% save it and was £100 less than the 1st one i went to see

taken it a little drive around the industrial estate and fell in love with it
