    Let us know what they say and it's a pleasure :)

    They quoted around £450 and approx 2 hours and a road test, if that helps too :)

    That does sound expensive, he was quoting in the region of £450 to me, so I don't know why the extra expense, unless the entire system is more expensive, or the extra travelling? :)

    Shame as he'll do himself out of business as we do like to spread the word both good and bad and is the backbone for a lot of custom on the forum :)

    Have you thought of going back to him and gently enquiring as to the cost. You could mention that he was recommended after the Romsey Show and that he was quoting another price there (and it wasn't a show discount, as I asked him. In fact he laughed when I asked him) and why the added pennies, might be worth a try :)

    Infact looking at your Avatar, you're in Newbury and I'm just south of Reading, so the thoughts on extra travel wouldn't make any sense at all. Think I'd ask as to why the extra cost and good luck :)

    yes I will go back to them later ,as looking around most prices seem to be in the £395 -£425 bracket.don't understand why a £100 more.probably thinks all motorhomers have lots of
