    Has anybody done this? After driving around and not finding anything really suitable, I am tempted to get what I want delivered. Some good deals out there, sounds like about £100 "admin charge" for the "free delivery" but a car from Wigan is a lot cheaper than one local...

    We are currently protected, so 2 weeks to return for any reason. I guess we'd lose out on the "admin" fee though, but better than being stuck with a lemon.

    Looking at 2015+ Vauxhall Merivas at the moment, look like a good size car for camping, but not so long as an estate.

    There was a thread on this about a week or so ago, I can't remember if it was actually very insightful or what section of the forum, could have been General Discussion.

    Can't find it. My dad says buy local. but maybe that is just old school, like, no diesels, no towbars, no fluffy dice
