    Our first outing in the new van with our 12 month old grand-daughter, woke up to this today and minus 4, good test for the central heating, no ehu so fire left on position 1 all night, there is a definate plus to having a gas/ electric convector option with the standard fit truma.

    And she seemed to approve :BigGrin:

    Loving it:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Your beautiful grand daughter does not look like the snow is bothering her. Obviously your van is winterised. Enjoy and post more pictures of your adventures:BigGrin:

    Yo Gerry

    We were at a C & CC Rally (http://www.waggonerstalk.co.uk/Northern_Area/Northern_Area.html) at Beamish Living Museum (http://www.beamish.org.uk/) 50+ vans turned up not bad considering the weather and forecast, really friendly bunch and a brilliant location with good pubs and grub within easy walking. :thumb:

    Well impressed Peter must admit we had reservations but it's come together beautifully and is a superb layout, mind you the luton mattress could be thicker for comfort to an auldie like me. Wife and grand-daughter tested the appaently very comfy and cosy fixed rear bed.(One day I might!:RollEyes:)

    Well done Auto-Trail well finished and nicely screwed together:thumb:

    Looks brilliant, well done!

    Hope the snow lasts a wee bit longer as we're off to Whitley Bay on Saturday :)

    Enjoy
