    Don't forget though, with the power of the internet we all have the power to "Name and Shame"
    I only say this because I have seen the power of internet forums / discussions to resolve issues. :thumb:

    Before my RV the times I didn't get the bed size right (thought I could cope with shorter one and sofa I can lie on in the evening comfortably) glamorised by the wrong things:RollEyes:

    I am 6'5'' so made a few mistakes with length issues (and lost a few quid changing unnecessarily) :Doh::RollEyes:

    Hi,

    Best thing to do as well after you have driven your pride and joy away, is to stay local for a couple of nights trying everything out, then you can easily go back and have any niggles sorted, especially if you are some miles away from the dealership.

    A good dealer should know the local campsites for you to stay at and should be happy for you to come back with any queries.

    Selling a MH should be an ongoing relationship and not just end once you drive away.

    Even with the best will in the world, faults can happen.

    Regards
