You're swimming with sharks! Best advice I can give is get any prospective purchase vetted by an independent inspector. There are so many pitfalls, if you're not loaded you're probably realistically looking at buying a vehicle that by most hauliers' standards would be considered 'elderly' and there is a lot of rubbish out there. What is your budget?

Have got an excellent mechanic freind that works on lorries that will check over if local, if not then will pay for a thorough check with someone else. Am looking to spend up to 25k ish. Living, carries at least 2 big or 3 horses 17.2. Have seen a lot of rubbish about and am getting fed up of looking now.:confused:

Blimey, 25k and you are seeing rubbish.....that is worrying. :confused:
Surely you could get a decent re-build for that price? Do you have any coach builders near you?
Have you looked on horsemart?
Good luck :)

My friend (in England, not Hungary! ;)) is selling a nice lorry which her husband converted - he does them professionally - I don't know how big it is though. She's straight and honest and I'll try and find more info for you. :)

Wow! The world's your lobster, you would be looking at a serious set of wheels for that money in the current climate :cool: A nice Oakley Supreme would be my choice, but then I've always fancied having a wet room ;) I'd probably sell my house & live in my lorry! :D
