    Having had a few motorhomes over the last 20 odd years it got me thinking about where they are now.
    I know the 2012 Autotrail tracker rs went to funster Snailtrailer who then changed it for their present one but as for the others I have no idea where they are

    Our only former motorhome was written off after visits from Asda and a neighbour. We subsequently found, though, that it was put back on the road. A check at http://www.ukvehicle.com/ shows that it is taxed until December 1, 2015 and has an MOT until May 14, 2016.
    I don't know what I should do if we ever met the new owners as they might not know that it was written off.

    We sold our previous Motorhome, a few months ago now, to a family who'd seen us on a funsters meet , the first time out in it ! They'd loved the layout , like we did. Since then, and wanted one .
    When we put It up for sale they saw it on eBay . No longer funsters they contacted us through eBay .
    Bought it and are now funsters again.
    In fact they rung us up , whilst we were out for a meal on Saturday night. They'd Returned from a day out to no power and the stuff in the fridge was melting, whilst off grid....... Help!!
    Soon rectified .
    They'd accidentally flicked a switch, turning off the power to the hab area. So ours is still a well loved family van. Which I'm glad about, as we had lots of happy years and memories in her.

    I don't know where our Auto Sleeper Ravenna is now but I still get text messages when the alarm is activated.

    that's as good reason as any not to sell to friends or keep in touch with new owners.. .. once it's gone.. it's gone.. and with it, all future problems..

    If Ralph can advise he will, its in his nature .
    But If there were any Major future problems they would be the new owners. Not ours. They bought sold as seen . Without a warranty. As people do when it's a private sale.

    Saw our second motor home about three years after selling it, on a CC&C site at Malvern.

    We had always looked after it so were disappointed to see bicycles leant against it with corresponding dents caused by the handlebars. Still, not everyone has the same priorities!

    Our first MH was sold to a wandering musician and his girlfriend who lived in it travelling round Spain

    Our last was sold to a very nice couple from 'the dark side'

    Not seen either van since

    That same thing happened with a previous caravan we had. Great big handle bar dints.
    Plus when we looked in the door sneakily , when walking past, you'd have needed to wipe your feet when you came out !! It was minging.

    @davanne Anne we know your/our Autotrail Tracker is still with Becks Motorhomes. They took it to the Peterborough Show but still it hasn't sold. It is still in excellent condition as we didn't do that many miles in it. Very disappointing - I even feel sorry for the dealer
    :whistle:

    Letting the grey water out hasn't done that grass much good.
