    Stardream!

    Hello, new to this so hope I get it right? we have a Stardream - bought it from new 4 years ago (SKIing hoiiday - Spent Kids Inheritance......) and really really love it - our fourth motorhome in 25 years starting with a very ancient Bedford CF, then progressing, thought a fixed rear bed mnight be nice - hummm got that wrong) and then saw the Stardream, test drove it and fell in love!! Only probs I wil emntion, we have had to fit a 'gutter' over the door as the rain came down that side and made the inside of the door wet if the weather was blowing in in a particular direction - AND sligthly more worrying - we discovered on a recent trip the rear lockers full of water, and I mean FULL! We 'googled' likely problems and then looked at the way the doors fitted and lo and behold they did, but not very well. With some adjustment we seem (?) to have solved the problem having just had another few days away in our lovely summer (!)) and all remains dry SO I guess the gist of what I am trying to say is just keep an eye on where water might come in - does being a low profile make any difference?? But we really enjoy our Stardream, it is comfortable, economical (even towing a little car on occasions) convenient even when the family descend as altho it is only a 2 berth there is plenty of room inside, the bed is very generous (we even had our 4 year old grandson to stay and we all bunked down together (3 in a bed and the little one said move over move over!!) and managed fine!) , storage space a little tight if you want to take BIG things but you could always buy a back box? Enjoy it, I am sure you will, and safe journey(s)
