Picking it up next March, as we do not wont to travel over winter period, until we get to know van.

    Hi and welcome to the site, no point in waiting until march, no one else will look after it as well as you will, keep mice out, batteries charged water system emptied etc. Collect it, sit in it on the drive, take it for a run up the road and keep brakes and clutch free and in good working order, don't park with handbrake on, if left they stick. 1001 reasons to collect it now even if you don't wish to have day trips on sunny days to find out which switch does what. Your warrentee starts now why waste it. check it all out ASAP, take it for a weekend away, come to sunny Devon. anything but leave it with a dealer for six months, a lot can go wrong with it just being sat doing nothing.

    We had ours in February and used it straight away. It was lovely and cosy even on wintery nights.

    Ridiculous - get it on the road and join us for the winter in Spain. You might be dead by March.

    By February if you join us in Spain.
