WHAT TO PAY

Check­ing out the prices, we found that £7995 was av­er­age, with one pri­vate sale of­fered at £6995. Look for any ex­tras that might be fit­ted, such as a mover or an awning.

AL­TER­NA­TIVES

Pageant Series 7 mod­els are good used buys. Check out a Monarch two-berth with great end wash­room and 7ft 6in width – they were very spa­cious. These also came with lots of kit, and you can pick up a 2008/9 model for about £7995.

Or try a 2007

Abbey GTS 215 at £7195, with good kit and a well-equipped end wash­room.
