    Hi everyone on the MHF Club..

    My name here is Craig and i am married to wife Vikki for 12 years and together for 15 (Shocking people do less for murder) We have two children Jacob @ 6 and Lewis @ 3yrs old. We are originally Caravan and Tent people. I am a fully qualified Caravan engineer and hope i might be able to help here in some ways.. Now for the Motorhome details - It was my mums wishes for me to purchase a motorhome just before she passed away on 20th September so to keep with her wishes we went to the NEC the other week to look about, I had a good idea i would be probably be putting a deposit down but went with a open mind but was looking for fixed bed at the rear. Anyway after 4hrs of walking and talking we strolled back the the Roller Team section and sat with a lovely chap who never pushed us in anyway. We sat with him for about 45mins and he said to us "Come look at one we have with bunk beds" i was so feed up at looking i just didn't feel like it was going to be worth looking at..

    HOW WRONG WAS I?

    It was like my mum was with us and pushed us to this Motorhome and after sitting there for 20mins the wife said "This is the one i feel it" and the kids WOW Jacob and lewis both said "We want this one with bunks we love it" i sat there and felt funny and just looked at the salesman and said "Sort me a deal" after tea,orange and sweets for kids we struck the deal a brand new RollerTeam Auto-Roller 700 for a show grabbing price of £35.500, and then i added Cobra Cat 1 alarm, 4m Fiamma roll out canopy, Reversing Camera with screen, and a fixed Aerial.

    For a grand total of £37.563 which i feel is a pretty good deal...

    All that i need to do now is sell my mums house and pay this baby off.. We held the show deal with a deposit and are just all fingers crossed on the sale of my mums home for her dream for us to start...

    I am also shocked at the £348 a year FC insurance,

    Anyway we will be out in it every two weeks at weekends and on holiday when we can, The kids can't wait and nor can me and the wife. Looking forward to meeting other out there on our travels,

    So if you people see the us in the motorhome can't miss it with the plate being my user id and "W18BLA" and it will have the words "THANKS MUM" under that.

    Anyway thats me sorry for the long post lol..

    Craig

    Hi Craig & Vicky....welcome to the Fun :welcome:

    Hopefully the house will soon sell and you can enjoy your Mum's legacy as she wanted you to. With so many on view at NEC it surely must be the one and is meant to be.

    regards

    Hi and welcome.
    What a lovely mum you had, and everytime you go out you will be thinking of the wonderful person who gave you this opportunity. Hope you and the children have the best of times.

    Well it's me again and it has been too long..

    If you have read the start of this topic you will know what we have been waiting for, But right upto date we still have not taken delivery of our Motorhome, But things are looking up as we are about completed on the house sale and are taking a trip down to the dealer tomorrow to sort out our motorhome, They had to sell the one we put the deposit down on but they have been great and held the deposit for us, so we are taking a drive of 2hrs to the dealer in morning to sit and sort the newer model looks like the RollerTeam 707 is the one we are having, So going to get ball rolling and get it spec'd up and fingers crossed next week i can phone them with the go ahead to sort a collection day.

    I will keep you posted peeps.

    Craig
