    Yesterday the wait for our Kontiki 635 came to an end as we picked up our new van we are over the moon with it .
    we spent our first night which I have to say was extremely comfortable at Home farm At Brent knoll Somerset A large site which was very nice, and friendly too ...the handover went extremely well and Max at West Country motorhomes was very thorough and showed us how everything worked etc but can't say we remember everything he told us so it's will be a little trial and error at times I suppose
    . We have had a long drive back from Somerset to Cumbria today In very heavy traffic but now we are home we can get used to our van and the real fun begins ...roll on next weekend :)

    Great stuff.

    Don't worry about what was said on handover. I never really listen to anyone and just get by on a trial and error basis.

    It's part of the fun(y)

    Good luck with the handover. I hope it goes well.
    Exciting times ahead for us both. How soon can you get away in it?
    We are a bit frustrated as ours is with the dealer. In fact, we have "visited" it twice now but they are so busy, they can't get it into the workshop until 7th. Handover is not until 4pm on 9th and we are taking it away on 10th :)
