    Our first run out in the new Hymer , a couple of days at NEC.
    320 mile round trip and fill up to fill up produced 28 mpg , (trip 28.8) mainly motorway/dual carriageway , 55ish mph and with 150hp auto a dream to drive.
    The domestic side also worked faultlessly,
    Cant wait to get in some serious travelling (y)

    Did you have a proper paid for stand to sell your crepes, nibbles and fizz LarryHarry or were you a freeloading tosser and banged it out of the side window, whilst in the car park. If you could get the VeryOldMoIceCremInternetMan to park beside you, you might get some comprehensive sales. :hi:

    Now Mikey, you know that 53mph is a perfect speed for motorhome travel as it allows comprehensive viewing of the surrounding scenery. Further it means all the trucks overtake you and thus you only occasionally have to get past the odd slow one. So you leave our friend, that old pensioner, LarryHarry alone, after all he is a very delicate soul and very very scared of scratching his new paint. :emo:
