    In preparation for my retirement from work we have been looking for a new (to us) A class motorhome. Howie has always wanted one with all "bells and whistles"!:Wink:

    We had a 440 round trip to Bury today and have agreed a part exchange on our Autotrail for a Burstner Elegance 821. It has everything that was on our list and hopefully pick it up at the end of the month. However the one thing I didn't look for was if it had cruise control - I guess because I thought it was standard. Has anyone else got a 2008 elegance and if so has it got cruise control as standard?


    Now only 29 working days to go before freedom:Smile:
    Regards

    Kath and (Howie)

    If not you can probably have it fitted. We had it done on our Eura Mobil by Dave Newell. Excellent job and it works brilliantly.

    I forgot to say its on a Fiat Ducatto 3000 cc base. Our Autotrail has it as standard so I am guessing the new mh has it. Will give the dealers a call tomorrow and if it hasn't got it then can think about getting it fitted.

    Regards
