      I am sure anybody who is looking for an exsis will have seen this, but just to give people the heads up.

      https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/hymer-exsis-2004-2005-motorhome-campervan/124268969539?hash=item1cef01fe43:g:lyUAAOSwdZ5fF~2Y

      I have no link to the advert, just came up on my saved searches. Looks cheap, but very high miles. Unusual blue one though.

      This is so unbelievable, I contacted the seller…  Apart from being unable to understand him, BE CAREFUL!  It may be genuine, but…  My recommendation would be to quickly see it and the documentation, before parting with any money.  As I say, it may be genuine, but dealers don’t usually make these kind of financial errors – even with the mileage, it should fetch over £20,000!

      Caveat emptor!

      The registration  number ‘PO54 BUY’ doesn’t appear on the DVLA MoT website,  despite the seller claiming 12 months remaining on the MoT.  Not conclusive, I know (he could just be offering a new MoT to the purchaser) but just be aware.

      Very good points Barry, It does look too cheap to be true.

      Had a good look at the photos and got the reg to be PO54BUV, looking at the MOT history the milage is correct, with it being due end of May 2021.

      His feedback is not fantastic on eBay, so it is defiantly ‘Buyer beware’.

      Sorry, Chris – my mistake.  My poor old eyes.

      If it is genuine, it’s the bargain of the century…!

      Just got back from another little trip and found this thread……..

      Please be aware of the history of this van and PLease check it out for rust and genuine repair and MOT.

      At the price it sold there was plenty of scope for a proper repair to be done, but PLEASE watch out for a bodged job for a quick huge profit!!!!!!!

      I came across this on March 11th on the Motorhome Fun Forum in the motorhome chat section headed up as…..’Took me by surprise’ and I joined that forum as a non subscription member especially to post a reply and inform prospective purchasers of  our site. (Barry – you may remember my message to you, or not. ha ha!)

      The owner of the Blue Exsis 2004 was a Bernard Feay from Bolton who was elderly and had bought the van at 20k miles and put another 138k miles on it – its the same 158k !

      He took it for MOT and the garage told him not to bother as it needed too much rust repairs and new tyres

      He put it on Ebay at a very low price and got offered £6k for it and despite rapid further offers sold it for the £6k cash – notes in hand.

      There were several posts telling him that it was too cheap – but it was too late

      this is what I wrote

      Bernard, I am sorry to say that you would appear to have been a bit rash.
      It’s a pity that you were not aware of our website dedicated to the original Exsis www.exsisowners.com
      Information and for sale threads on the website would concur with comments above that these models are indeed sought after and regularly sell well in excess of £20k (often 25k for good ones)
      Recently someone just spent £2500 on extensive rust work and sealing….
      So there is plenty of scope for the new owner to spend quite a bit and enjoy a real bargain or too sell it on and make a small fortune.
      I hope that the lovely little van gave you great pleasure and practical enjoyment in your ten years of ownership – so many of us owners have kept our vans either from new or long term as you did.
      Regards, Fred

      I had a good look at the photos of the interior and it looks like its had a hard life. Damp, doors warping etc.

      I see the wardrobe door is very warped. It is now listed as sold, hopefully the new owner did all the relevant checks.
