    :Sad:I knew it was on it's way but we have both agreed. We'll miss you all but I'll hang around here for a bit anyway. We are thinking of getting a static in the Spring but who knows. I'm in the middle of sorting out a social life with groups and and so on, which I couldn't commit to before.

    Do tell me if this could be improved. :BigGrin::Sad:

    No need to leave the 'fun' Ivy, I've been motorhome less for 12 months now but still enjoy most of the banter on here, besides if you left where am I going to get my fresh material from joke wise.?:cry:

    Oh noooo, you can't do that! You,re my tennis partner, I thought you and me were shaping up for Wimbledon when we played at Marjal.
    What ever you decide to do Ivy, as long as its the right thing for you and Sandy, then Brisey and I wish you well. You will be missed. Love and hugs to you both.

    Ivy, don't go:Sad:! You will miss the freedom on the motorhome, in a static you will wake up to the same view every morning.

    But I have to say the van looks lovely, if it was next year we would have been very interested in it, just not quite ready to move on from dear old Herman.
    But please don't leave the Fun.

    We are thinking of getting a static in the Spring

    Bin there dun that, DONT do it without a lot of thought , the rent and insurance are ridicules now a days, ours got to costing more a year than we paid for it In the first place, and as someone else said do you really want to go to the same place all the time

    You'll both be missed if you go.
    Think again long and hard before you do it.

    My brother in law bought one of those.
    The only view he had on three sides was more statics, with a hedge on the fourth.

    Oh that's sad news Ivy, it wont be the same at rallies without you and Sandy, but we wish you well whatever you decide. :thumb:

    Things always change as life goes on, sometimes for the better, you might get your static and think should have done this years ago.:BigGrin:

    :Wink: Then those poor funsters would not have had to put up Sandy stirring them up.:Rofl1:

    Only joking have a great time, good luck with the sale, and if you change your mind we will do another Tattingstone meet just for you.:Laughing: Bob Jane and Izzy ( is missing Ellie.:cry:)

    IVY PLEASE PLEASE



    do not get a static

    they start of with either free ground rent for the first year or reduced rent, then it goes up so high that you could have spent 6 months abroad for what they wanted.

    Then in anything from 3-8 years they tell you that you have to upgrade the static or move it off the site.

    and thats the best scenario.

    Relatives of ours had a static for 8 years on a site. They paid nothing for the first two years, by year 5 they could have spent the whole of the summer abroad for all the charges including ground rent, electric gas etc etc.

    The site owners sold the site. the new owners decided they didnt like our relatives who ended up having to sell their van (which they had only upgraded two years earlier to stay on site at a huge cost). they sold their van for £400 as it had to be sold through the site owners.

    Whatever you do, stay in hotels, bed and breakfast but DONT get a static


    ps just because you are selling the motorhome doesnt mean you cant still stay a fun member. Bring a tent or one of us will put you up
