Merc Vito advice - anthony
I am considering buying a Mercedes Vito 113, 2 litre petrol, camper van (professional conversion), air-con, leather seats, S plate, 47k miles for £17000. I have read some horror stopries about the Vito. It looks fantastic. Anyone know if this is a good a price? And is it thirsty?

Thank you.

Hi Anthony - have you read HJ's comments on the Vito in the Car by Car Breakdown ? They might explain the price.

Always a bit wary of campers!
How long was it a van/bus before it became a camper?
Not seen many conversions on this vehicle, but would have thought it was a bit on the small side. Plus if it's had a new camper body, hate to think what your fuel consumption would be!
If you're looking for value for money on a camper, check out a Fiat chassis with the BIG 2.4 diesel engine.
Bet there's plenty of other sites dedicated to campers, with milliooooooons of suggestions!!
Happy holidays
Mark.

I'm deeply unconvinced about the point of these vans, but £17k is not £10k over the money.

I agree it would make much more sense with a torquey 125 bhp CDi engine than the 2 litre from the E Class, but there is a strong market for people who like to bolt a small cottage in Devon to a builders' runabout.

Mercedes even do a factory conversion of the Vito - God knows what that costs though.

As a very disapointed V-Class(diesel) owner I cannot reccomend it.
The vito/V-Class is excellent to drive and in diesel form very
economical. Reliabiliy however is horrendous In 3 years and less than 20k miles I have had problems with:-

Brakes
Clutch
Air suspension pump (replaced twice)
Buckled wheels
central locking
alarm
suspension links
ECU fault codes
Faulty trim

Try a Toyota or VW based camper instead.
