    The search is over, we have got a motorhome today.

    A 1987 B544 from Bundesvan - old but very tidy and we both thought it was "the one"

    I need to buy a hookup cable, a water hose and some levelling blocks now. :Eek!:

    Thanks to everyone on this forum for all the advice given and ear bending received over the last year.

    Bit nervous but looking forward to getting away in the van... Yippee

    Missed sticker

    We have already sorted the SAE out

    Plenty of press for the stickers lol. Not so much for the best place to get the basics like a hook up cable.

    Online specialist or a local DIY, what is best for these sort of things?

    Mollycoddle face = Jim?

    We got a new electric cable on line a couple of weeks ago, £10 cheaper than we could get them any where else. from a Amazon link.

    Congratulations on your new MH! There's a Facebook group called 'Motorhome buy sell', where you can pick up 2nd hand MH equipment. I hope I haven't broken any forum rules mentioning this, if I have please accept my apologies!:Smile:

    Sorry.... me trying to be clever there... apparently not!

    A recent thread mentioned a user on another forum, by the name of Molliecollie (badly corrupted by me!), who was complaining of being surrounded by MH Fun-sticker bearing vans at the Whitby Goth meet, and I was lamely trying to suggest that we (and you with new stickers) should increase her discomfort by surrounding her on more occasions!

    I guess it loses something if I have to explain it.....

    Simon.

    Are we getting our wingers mixed up? I think Mollycollie may have been the Caravan Club winger, as in:

    Confused?, you will be!

    I called into local motorhome dealer Canterbury, found items they had removed from vans and offered my price for them.
    good luck in your van just go and enjoy.
