We’re thinking of downsizing from our fixed bed Hymer Tramp to an Autocruise starfire. I realise there are compromises but has anyone any advice re this motorhome please.

It might be worth you saying what age of “Starfire” you have in mind, as Autocruise made that model from around 2000 onwards and Swft (after taking over Autocruise) built Starfires up to at least 2012.

We have a 2005 2.2HD and it is great. Fits easily on the drive and can be parked in quite small spaces at only 5.5 meters.
Enough storage for the two of us, and comfortable to stay in and drive.
Engine pulls and cruises well.
Cannot think of any negative comments to say about ours, but depends on how they are looked after.
Ours is dry inside, but a dealer told me that the place to look for damp is under the seat around the water pump area.

If it's a Swift build (2007 or 8 onward) check underneath beyond the rear wheel arch for damp in the floor.
The Swift/Bessacar equivalent models had plastic sheet protection for the ply floor, which inevitably got damaged causing "spongy" floor.
I remember numerous instances reported on the forum at the time, but don't recall any Autocruise models being mentioned specifically.

We have had a 2011Autocruise Starfire from new and wouldn't swap it for anything else,
lots of inside storage space ,good kitchen area and very comfy for lounging.
Apart from a few snagging issues when new it has been problem free.
