Well I have mk 6 camper van on a jumbo whitch is in good overall condition but is ten years old but I have been looking at mk 7 jumbos with a low mileage to put all the gear into to up date the van but on looking on line I see that there are a lot of mk 8 Euro 5 jumbos that are low miles and still have Ford warranty still on them and on sale at Ford dealers for not much more money then a mk7 so I may go for one even though it will be a lot more work .i keep looking on the mk8 form to see what problems they have as it just seems strange how many low mileage mk8 are about as you expect companies to run them for 3 years old or out of warranty.
when I have looked at buying vans before I have always looked at transit vans with 100000 MLS as low mileage as most of the mk7 vans on sale seem to be 3 year old and over 100000 MLS so to me mk 8 vans look like a good deal shame about the vat we have to pay on vans as well.
