    Happy times today in the Milliethehymer household.

    Back in July we put our order in for the new MH and we've now had the call that Millie has safely been delivered to the dealers :roflmto:

    Currently undergoing PDI and a few dealer fit bits, the anticipation builds

    We've booked for the Peterborough Show rally, booked a trip in May to North France and have planned a month long road trip for June going from West Yorks across to Anglesey, down Wales, across to Cornwall, back along the coast and then up the spine of England to home.

    To say we are excited is an understatement!!!

    The bad news is that due to numerous commitments we can't actually pick her up until March:heartbreak: . Well, we could, but it would sit outside an empty house for a few weeks so that seems pointless...

    To share our excitement, some pictures sent by the dealer attached:

    Ha yes, spare wheel was of course a paid for optional extra! Kind of in two minds whether we should have bothered, and relied on a can of gunk instead. I don't ever plan to change the wheel myself but I suppose the AA man might do if I call him out...at least I do have the option..

    @Judge Mental it's a MLI 580, with the 163 bhp upgrade and 7 speed auto box.

    Colour is described as "Sierra grey" but (a) nothing like a grey Ford Sierra from the 80's and (b) looks like a gold colour in the flesh as it were. Quite a pricey add on but the one in the showroom had that finish and it looked so good that we thought s0d it and went for it...
