Van purchase/hire for Europe climbing trip
11:36:51 PM
I'm off to Europe soon for a 3 month climbing trip and looking at either buying or hiring a van to cruise around in, sleep in and cook in.

My girlfriend is a British citizen, so we are thinking it would be easy to buy in the UK and try and sell it when we are done in the UK.

Where have people bought vans from before? And does anyone know of people with vans who may be happy to hire off or buy off??

We are looking for a vehicle that could possible do off road if needed.

Hi Doolie,

Im finishing my euro tour in 4 weeks and will be selling my Mercedes wagon. Its a 2000 model Mercedes Benz E220 cdi station wagon. Its probably not really what you're looking for but i thought id give you the option.

Its german registered and has roadworthy for another 18months. Ive been sleeping in it for most of the last 10 months or the tent when i had the option. I decided to go with the wagon rather than a van due to the difference in initial cost and the reduced fuel costs.

Let me know if youre interested and i can provide more details
