    At long last, after much faffing about, we are now the (almost) owners of a Bailey 760. Only 2500 miles and got it for the price I'd set my heart on, so it does pay to have a budget & stick to it!! And I didn't even have to travel across the water, so saved ferry fare & diesel & accommodation. Just need to pay the guy so won't count my chickens just yet but we're almost there & I'm so excited.

    Not totally a beginner as we did have a MH for 2 years before but it feels all new again & I'm sure there'll be loads to learn.

    Does anyone know where the best place to get an alarm fitted is? We'll probably do that on the way down England in the summer before we go to Europe. The type that you can put on while you're sleeping in the van - they can break in when I'm not there but I don't like the idea of them breaking in when I am there :Smile: Also, maybe a reversing camera - I do recollect hitting a pole in France on one occasion - hubby wasn't particularly pleased :Blush: though I do think I'm a much better driver than him :Wink:

    Plus one for the strikeback. They are busy though, could not do ours on the new van until June 6th. The insurance are ok with it as we have 28 days after we collect the new van on 23rd
