Hello. Having just signed up and exploring the site I found your post. If you are still looking my advice would be to visit a large dealership with new and secondhand models available. That way you can look at different internal layouts, roof styles etc and decide what suits you. Once you have your criteria then you can look at smaller dealers who won’t have the range and online at eg Autotrader.

As someone above mentioned you do need to consider storing the vehicle when not in use.

Also the initial outlay can be hefty but resale prices are also relatively high. Would advise against a brand new one as depreciation is similar to that of a car.

And Jan/Feb is a good time to buy as dealers are making room for new stock for the new season.
