    I know we wanted to.......... but now it has happened...... taken a deposit on our "Rapido"...

    After over 48 yrs on and off that`s it... :crying1: Couple of week`s and it will be gone.. All over finished ....

    Hope the new owners will have as much enjoyment out of the Mo.Home as we have...

    I think I have even persuaded them to join our happy bunch..(y)

    :hugs:

    Not really Bro....

    Paul does not enjoy it now.... so it just makes hard work for us keeping him occupied... and takes the fun out of it..

    Judy is expecting to have both hands done over the next few months, so that will put paid to her driving and being able to do a lot of things for many months..

    But at the end of the day.... hopefully she will be able to knock up my concrete and hump bricks for me again...

    Cos I am finding it very hard and stressful... :giggler:

    I have an idea what you are going through Mo. It will be the first time in over 30 years I will be without a van once my fiver is gone this weekend. Have been frantically trying to find something to replace it with even though the next 12 months are planned using long term apartments. I even went to deepest Wales last night to view another van, knowing I wont use it for at least another year. Old habits die hard.

    Well Mo, I don't know you but you seem to be very well liked and respected on here.
    Despite the jokes.:D
    Best wishes for whatever the future holds.

    48 years wow I didn't realise you bought your first motorhome and joke book at the same time :)

    Hope everything works out for the 3 of you and if I'm ever down your way I'll pop round.

    Sorry to hear that Mo.I was hoping that your fickle side might have kicked in and you'd change your mind.;)

    Seriously ....Hope all works out and Judy makes a full and swift recovery.

    Regards to all three of you.

    seriously though Mo feeling a bit sad for you today realising its the end of 48years motorhoming. but never say never. you may very well feel the need in future for something smaller for quick weekends away. Plus you are going to have plenty of funsters come visit you regularly

    Life has many twists and turns, Mo, some you can control and some you can't but all can be exciting. Hope whatever you're future holds is good
