    Not had a great start to the year with mum losing her fight against a short illness, so it was nice to receive some good news today.

    The dealer I'm buying my new van from in Germany has sent me some photos of it. image.jpeg

    This is part of the winter pack helps keep the cold out from the back doors.

    Went for RHD as Lorraine wasn't comfortable with LHD

    Have purchased the extra Bed that fits in at the dinning area so Sophie can still come along.

    Looks great. I aspire to a good PVC, but lack the courage to commit to a smaller living space.
    Enjoy.

    So sorry to hear about your Mum, my thoughts are with you and I remember your post about Christmas Day and what lovely memories you have. On a lighter note you van looks beautiful! Exactly the layout I'm trying to get OH to get ! We looked at the globecar which is very similar. Many happy trips in her when she arrives!

    Thanks for your kind words, this actually is a Globecar its just called a Possl in Germany. If you do go for one let me know as the savings I have made are pretty good, we can't find a four year old van cheaper than ours never mind a new one.

    Ask me again in a few months as we sold our Adria Matrix 680sp to downsize, we are sure we have done the right thing but only time will tell.
