Hi new on here
#1
I'm 65 years old living in Chesterfield Debyshire, just lost the wife and now trying to get my life on some sort of track.

Thinking of getting a Belingo multispace have a base  on £4000 to spend, not shore which to pick.

Newer van but high mileage or older with less mileage, like the idea of roof lights in the older models, but at 6ft 2 inch not shore if there is enough head room if kitted out as a weekend camper, with storage boxes in the roof.

Not shore if to go down the road in building my own units or buying in.

Welcome to the forum,

I would say that 4 grand should get a mid to high mileage new shape Berlingo / partner .
Go for one with a full service history , on the 1.6 hdi B9 (current shape) cambelts / water pumps should be replaced at 12500 mile and oil and filters should be changed at least ever 2 years and very preferably every year.

Enjoy your time here.

I'm well past the6' mark myself, and there's plenty of headroom in my M49(first gen model).
I don't have a top hat, but yeah, it should fit...
(unless install some high boxes )

Pop by a dealer and take a good look is my advice.

You may want to review the specs and decide (like I did for example) on an XTR with Diesel engine, Man Trans and A/C. (I'll get slated for saying it but the auto isn't the most highly regarded transmission). There have been a lot of accessory packs over the years, worth finding out what they contain. Suggest to spend some trawling this forum as you may want to choose a diesel without a DPF. A number of Berlingo Multispace's have been mobility vehicles and often come with relatively low mileage, some of these also have adaptations which don't always enhance the price.

Thank you for the advice you are giving me, starting to look in a few weeks but will not rush into getting one will check spec and service history.

It would be a diesel I go 1600 HDI after looking last night edging towards XTR - VTR models,

I am hoping to enjoy the future.

As for wife Cancer took her, rotten to say but it was for the best. The pain she was having would make me wish to depart this world, not only cancer but spondylosis with in a year she would have been paralised from the waist down, she told me she did not want that. But that leaves me here trying to pick up the pieces and start afresh.
