    Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a Concorde Motorhome Owners Club for UK owners. Looking forward to collecting ours in the new year and if there were any others around having get togethers in 2016.

    Hi Lynd57

    The simple answer is NO, a few owners were invited by Southdowns to attend a bit of an event at Chichester earlier this year likewise a few were invited to the factory In Germany for one of their events, as these invites came from Southdowns of course you would need to be a customer of theirs to get the invite in the first place, there is talk of a club starting but not sure when @KayeB might know a little more than I do.

    Out of interest what are you getting and is it from Southdowns.

    From the headline I thought you meant the aircraft, in which case I was going to suggest you contact BA or Air France.

    Hello Martin, Thats a shame but thanks for the info, Southdowns did mention a trip to the factory in Germany.
    We opted for a Charisma in the end a very nice motorhome. Merry Christmas

    Hi, I was one of the guys at the concorde meet up in Germany last year talking about an owners club, which would be great. At the least an active forum group would be very useful to discuss both various technical issues....the concordes are complex beasts...and to share information on good sites, plan meet ups etc.
    We are relatively new (8 months) Charisma owners and very pleased with our new (well second hand) baby.
    Please get in touch if you need any advice or information ....have you picked it up yet?

    Hello Peter
    Good to hear from you. We are actually collecting ours next Monday, so excited. We've had some remodelling to do to accomodate the Charisma (raise the roof!) and do some groundwork before bringing it home but the weather here in Devon has been rotten to say the least but we're nearly there now.
    We plan to go to the factory meet in Germany this year and it would be good to hear from other Concorde owners who are doing the same or to maybe coordinate and do the journey together.
    Lets keep intouch on here so if you know any other Concorde owners let them know (or they can 'like' this post) and maybe we can start chatting and share info on sites, techy stuff (husband Johns dept!), meet ups etc.
    Thanks for getting in touch Peter and i'll post a piccy when we're home
    Cheers Lyn

    Maybe the Eagle 5 Owner's Association could help?

    Hi Lynd57,

    We also went to the factory meet last year, along with Peter 21 & Kaye B.

    Not sure if we will be able to go this year but will probably do a few UK rallies.

    Sure we will meet up some time.

    Regards, J & A

    Yes we too were at the factory meet last year but missed the Chichester do as new van wasn't ready. Got it in December after long wait. E&D

    Jim...thanks for the name change and subforum...
    Lynd57...bet you can't wait! I am guessing you are going to Southdown's for the Charisma? Is Ben or Rod doing the handover? If so say Peter and Nia send their regards...We stopped at Hayling Island for a couple of days after our handover to get used to the systems and check everything out before taking the ferry over to France.
    You will have a lot of fun with your new toy.
    We will be in Portsmouth the Monday you pick up...we are catching the evening ferry to Caen that night. It's just getting a bit cold wet and windy up here in Cumbria and Spain beckons.
