Hi. I have an aquaintance who has a 22ft Paramount. It has been used three times in 5 years. He had to have over $5000 worth of repairs to wood rot in the frame last year as it had leaked without him realising it ( didn't realise from not using it very often) Paramount would not assist when he approached them. Cheers,Bob.

thanks for your reply, i have been travelling in an old van for over 12 months and it is really comfortable without shower loo, i have spent 3/4 of the 12 months fixing leaks as it is an old van, hard to detect a leak if you are not living in it full time, but i really appreciate the answer, i sent 10 emails to caravan sales yards and had 2 replies, so am disillusioned with the van scene at the moment

We have had our Paramount for around 4 years and are very happy with it. The couple initial teething problems were fixed without drama.

Your problem will be in finding a shower/toilet van under 1800kg gvm. Not sure if Paramount make one that small.

Cheers Neil
