    Now there's a good question, ferry booked salon tickets purchased and Father in law very ill in hospital, Brother in law,s turn to look after his Mum next week and do hospital visits so we just might get there.

    Are we buying? Doubt it

    Yep, fly out Saturday morning will go Sunday maybe Monday as the boss has a low attention span... Fly back Tuesday.
    Doubt we will be buying just trying to reduce the options, then will surf mobile.de introduced to us by the sadly departed Judgemental (RIP Eddie).
    Carthago/Hymer/Rapido with Rapido looking favourite to meet our needs at the moment.
    Need to wait until we have space to park before buying.
    Weather looks roasting out there - hope they sell beer ;)(y)

    Should arrive 5 - 6 pm Monday, get the dancing shoes on and off to the big marquee. Visiting the show Tue & Wed, then heading south, back home late October.
    Boss has put her foot down about spending on a new van, we will have to see about that.:)

    Well we got there and got back and had a good time in between, made a beeline for hall 14 and didn't see much else. Hall 14 contains Concorde, Morelo, Vario mobil, Volkner, Niesmann+Bischoff and a few more.

    what did anybody else see and fancy/buy.

    I liked the vario mobil with the red merc convertible and the volkner.

    We were parked next to a couple with a volkner in the parking area. We got chatting and she invited us in for a good look round her pride and joy. It was fantastic. They had owned it for two years and the leather upholstery still had the new car smell.

    And one of those bits would probably still have more room than that overpriced plastic. :)
