    1. Make sure you will have some place secure to store it.
    2. Don’t be too trusting with dealers. My first purchase turned out to have some hidden but
    serious water damage. it took two months of planned holiday time to get my money back. My
    second had an Approved Workshop service sticker but had demonstrably not been serviced.
    More time wasted, although they gave me three years free servicing.
    3. Bear in mind that negotiating is not the same thing as haggling. If the dealer is not going
    to budge even a little then be prepared to walk away.
    4. For we older people sleeping habits and ease of access to the toilet are important so give
    some thought to layout.
    5. Shop around for any accessories,future servicing and repairs.
