    Hi,

    Thought I'd introduce myself. Although we're experienced campers, we've taken the plunge and pick up our new motorhome in a week or so. A slightly used TEC RoTec Lift 652G. 4 berth German made, with a fixed bed over the garage at the rear and a drop down bed over the lounge area. Looking to tour Europe eventually, but only decided to buy the motorhome after we'd paid for our European trip this year :)cry:).

    Looking to get some insurance, a wheel clamp and then some solar panels for the roof (so suggestions for these all accepted!).

    Cheers,

    Tim (driver)
    Karen (sleeping passenger)
    Harry & Eve (the kids)

    Other vehicles in the fleet are:
    Toyota GT86
    Saab 9-5
    Citroen 2CV6

    Nice van and nice to see another Funster from Tees-side :thumb:

    We originally went to Camper NE to see a (different) TEC van before buying our Burstner from them.

    We have our insurance through Frank Pickles at the moment and had our solar panel supplied and fitted by Dave Newell. It's a bit of a trek from Tees-side to Telford but we knew Dave already and he gives a discount to paid up Funsters - and the job can always be combined with a holiday break.

    We nearly bought a house somewhere round there 23 years ago but opted for the one we're in now. We're the other side of Acklam Grange School, off Mandale Road :Smile:

    We had a very long look at one of those, but when this one came up with a big price reduction we snapped it up.
