    Came to the show with no intention to spend anything at all :rolleyes:
    Before the show was even open on Thursday we walked by the tow car people and swmbo spotted a "toad " she liked the look of. ....... so a new toad is ordered:doh:

    Next day just say hello to someone on the Becks Motorhome stand ..... 15 minutes later swmbo says " we can't take it with us " ....... so a new Hymer is on order!:doh::doh::doh:

    Oh well I hadn't been expecting to be skiing at my age but at least I won't have to re apply for my license at Christmas for the big 70.

    S'pose I shall have to learn Gerry lingo now.:RollEyes:

    Looks like fate dictating that we had to cancel was not a bad thing, looking at the weather..... mind you, would prefer the mud to the back pain

    Fantastic news, I suppose you need a toad, all that walking and cycling stuff must take it out of you at your age;)

    We've had that loan car a few times, visited some old haunts we hadn't seen since the 70's.

    That's what I like - real impulse buying! Follow your dreams.

    Cheers Dave, Towbar2towcars up near Grimsby.
    I hope your back is on the mend. ..... Pity you have missed the show but digging yourself out of the mud would have probably killed you.
    Anyway the other ducks are enjoying the weather here.

    Yes, they were my other choice and a really decent bunch of people to deal with when I saw them. No pressure and loads of information. Went with Unibrake in the end as we were down that way.

    And anyway the restaurants in Grimsby all close for lunch.....

    Haha Brian! It's like looking for the perfect handbag we are always looking for the perfect van!! But I will keep hold of my purse tightly unless I see a small bargain! I'm really after some new crocs shoes but I don't think he goes to "Peterbog"!!

    Congratulations we knew Joyce would get her own way in the end. :eek::LOL:
    ;) I hope it still fits in the garden leaving room for us on the drive. :pray:
    We got our van from Becks, very happy with them and they value their customers long after they have taken your money. (y)

    ;) But we did find they no longer trust you when you fulltime and want paying before you ride off into the sunset. :ROFLMAO: Bob and Janie.

    Cheers you two, too late now but I'm sure a divorce would have been cheaper.:wink:

    Yes it should still fit ( fingers crossed ) so there should still be space for visiting Funsters.(y)

    Becks seem to be fine so far and just hope they live up to their reputation.
