    Hi looking for a big favour from anyone near the Guildford area. We have been on the phone to Freeborn Motorhomes and have been offered a good deal on one of their vans.

    So just wondered if anyone lived near or pass by their dealership and wouldn't mind popping in and having a wee look at it for us. If you where to contact me first I will pay any cost incorporated in doing this. It just a bit far from us to pop down from Scotland.

    1 hr 05 mins.

    Not bad by FUN standards, but I reckon you've slowed down over Christmas. Come on, you know 1 hr is the limit.

    Eeee, i can remember t' days when t' ink wasn't dry on t' screen when tha' were there wi' the killer offer.

    Tony just noticed Brian post and im assuming this is the time it would take you to look at the mh i have asked about. Please don't put yourself out by this amount of time i was hoping someone lived within 10-20 mins. I certainly don't want to put someone out.

    I did have a look at the members map and didn't see you on it so not sure where you

    Yes Brian your right that is Fun for you total strangers who are willing to help others out.

    Gerry I think Brian is referring of the quick time in which the post was answered, from you posting pretty quick just over a hour, :thumb:

    I think you'll find it was the elapsed time between your first post and the offer of help - just a bit slower than a rapid response team :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Up until March last year (2012), I lived a couple of miles from Freeborn, and would have gladly called in for you.

    Unfortunately I had very unsatisfactory dealings with them a couple of years previously, and now wouldn't pi$$ on them if they were on fire.

    Hi wivvys dad if you wouldn't mind could you enlighten me of your issues if you don't want to post it on open forum feel free to pm me


    Yes Saloplan I totally agree with you, that JCM gets nothing but good reviews and I can only assume you bought your van from him when giving me this advice. I won't buy from someone just for the sake of it they have to have a few things going for them. One being good reviews and the other two being having the van I'm looking for and within the budget I have.

    Peter is on the case for me anyway so we will see what he can do.
