    Well I signed up some months back when I was in the UK & received a card from Movan ( Joy I now see ! ) in North Devon. Have only been back home a couple of weeks & have just got around to upgrading my account.
    I haven't had this van long & it is an exceptionally old one at 24 years , although having resided here in Spain for all its life apart from 6 months,
    chassis /bodywise it is like new.It is a Granduca 49 built by CTP on Fiat talento(Ducato) swb chassis.Everything works as well.
    Unfortunately it is also the normally aspirated so takes a while to get going but is very economical.
    This is a return to a motorhome as we had one some 30 years ago.
    I thought that this would be a bit on the small side but have now found it to be ok , albeit a bit short on outside storage.
    I bought it originally as I needed somewhere to be able to stay in different locations in the UK for a period in excess of 3 months & this was ideal . I shall certainly be keeping it & am looking forward to getting much more use out of it. I actually prefer driving it now to the car. lol :)

    Hello Gus. Thought it was you from other (expat) forums. We are in Totana, so are near neighbours. This is the best motorhome forum with many experts in all areas. Enjoy your motorhoming.
