    Well we've been together for over a year now, I first met you in Wales on a chilly November day, you'd just had a wash, your body gleaming in the weak wintery sun. I have to admit though it wasn't your looks that drew me to you, I may be shallow but your Mercedes automatic engine was a dream to drive. I remember the first time you came to my house, nervously wondering if you'd fit in. You sat awkwardly outside the front door but we made do. Our first few months were a whirlwind of trips, I took you to places you'd never been before. France was amazing, you loved it there, a country that you felt really welcomed you in, all your needs so easily met with aires and mostly for free. Oh how we laughed...

    Never forget all the wonderful Motorhome Fun friends we've made, you stood steady in the wind and rain of Ilfracombe, were kept up late at haggers do, watched me get tipsy at Malvern, I bought you presents at the bring and buy, but even then I was thinking our relationship was a mistake, you didn't give me the things I needed. I know, I know it's hard to hear and honestly it's not you, it's me, I just want more. I'm so sorry I'm breaking up with you, but we can still be friends. I'm sure you will go on to meet somebody else, someone who will really cherish you. You will always be special to me, because you were my first and if we pass in the street, I'll wave but sadly I'm saying, farewell old friend.

    Hello Hymer,
    I first saw your picture on the internet, I was swept away by your Germanic good looks, you looked rugged, solid and very big. I read your profile, we shared a lot of the same interests, you like to travel, so do I. You are happy to park up in a beautiful place and just chill, so do I. Walks on the beach, yeah baby, candlelight dinners, your extremely large table looks made for it. I was captivated by your extras, your self levelling jacks kept me awake at night, Efoy generator and hab aircon..you were ticking all my boxes, you seemed too good to be true, huge garage and payload, 4 seat belts...I had to have you.

    We arranged to meet up, I spent a week worrying, were those pictures of you taken years ago? Had you been mistreated in a previous relationship? What it some of you didn't work? I hate to admit I even wondered if you were damp.
    And then I saw you in that undercover storage garage, freshly polished, my heart skipped a beat, you were beautiful. I stepped inside and fell in love with you. You are a southpaw but I can get used to that, you put function over form, but no small detail has been overlooked. You are as solid and well built as your pictures suggest, I love your Merc auto and I can't wait to try your fixed bed.
    You are mine and I am yours, let the adventures begin..

    very nice Martin & Dawn.

    Could you let me know how many it holds for a party?

    I think we could get at least 4 in the garage.

    enjoy the last motorhome that you are ever going to buy, (as said by martin ;-)

    Was that Mousy in the fishing boat? ;)

    @Mousy - lovely van. Glad you found something that fitted the bill. Not the slightest bit jealous.

    Much.....

    I've always maintained that it's best to buy a classic VW camper from a dealer, because it saves you having to prise a blubbering ex-owner from its rear bumper. We get very attached don't we?

    The number of ads I used to see in VW mags saying 'New baby forces sale' - hideous little demon.

    That sounded like why I got divorced first time.

    I am sure she said " it's not you, it's me"

    Too ******** right it is! otherwise I would have hidden a lot of money.:D
