    Hello
    I am David married to Christine, have a daughter in final year of Uni. We are both still working (just) like to get away when we can, but with elderly relatives not always possible.

    We mainly use CC sites and the odd CL. We like to take an annual 3-4 week tour to Italy where my wife has family, and have done so for last 23 years. We love sites in Italy for the facilities and of course the food and vino.

    We are new to this forum but not new to Motorhomes the current one being our 10th! How did we get here ? starting in 1986 -
    1974 VW T2 Devon Moonraker
    1971 VW T2 Danbury
    1976 VW T2 Devon Sundowner
    1983 VW T3 Autosleeper Trident
    1993 VW T4 Holdsworth Villa
    1999 Fiat 1.9 Mobivetta 52
    1994 Ford Transit Autosleeper Duetto
    1999 Fiat 2.8 Rapido 710F
    2006 Ford Chausson Welcome 52
    2003 Fiat 2.8 Rapido 710F (ex-SUGGY).

    We met up with some Funsters at the Newbury Show marquee, a friendly bunch you are! :thumb: and also met Andy Harris at the Road Pro stand - he is taller in real life than he looks on the Motorhome Channel on TV.

    Our local dealers are Webbs Nr. Newbury for MOT & Servicing from whom we have had good service in the past.

    Hope to be able to contribute to the Forum and help out where possible.

    We wish you happy travels :Smile:

    Welcome David.:thumb:

    I'm just down the road from you in Crowthorne. Which means little, really. But I thought I'd mention it.

    We are not far away in Yateley and can thoroughly recommend Wokingham Rapido we bought ours there and they have always given us good service.

    Hi David and Christine, what a coincidence that was, telling us the last owner left a smiley in the window, and then all of us at our hospitality gazebo knowing who it was :BigGrin: Welcome to the Fun :thumb:
