Once again I've spent my Sunday day dreaming about getting a bigger van. I've been thinking, what's better... spending around £1500 on a 2002-2005 van with more miles, or around £5000 on a 2008-2010 van with fewer miles?
I also know of a nice condition 53 plate LWB hi top Boxer for sale for £350. It's £350 cos "it was running perfectly, then all of a sudden stopped." Apparently it's a part ex that the garage owner just wants to get rid of now.
I reckon any van purchase is a risk, new or old, so I think if the body work and general condition is OK I'd rather pay for an older van and then spend more on getting things fixed. That way I at least know that I've put new parts in and had problems fixed rather than someone else promising me they have.
What do you all think?
