    Looking at Trading my Tabbert Caravan for a Hymer/RMB Motorhome

    Looking at Trading my Tabbert Caravan for a Hymer/RMB Motorhome

    I have seen a late 80s VW LT 2.5 TD RMB motorhome for sale, just wondering how the VW LT compares to the Mercedes 410 from the 80s era. I feel it must be better built than the Fiats, after having a Ducato and literally rebuilding the whole motor home including gearbox and engine. Thanks Kirkie
