    Now son and BOTH daughters are motorhomers..
    Youngest daughter, Toni, has been a tugger for a long while but today she and her other half bought their first Motorhome.. a Frankia
    It will need a fair bit of TLC and tidying up but its a very nice mh on the whole and I reckon she will be extremely happy with it :)

    I see family rallies in the future. Hope you have plenty of parking if they all come to visit you at the same time! :)

    Apart from Des and Donna ( eldest daughter and her hubby ) the others live in houses around us !
    Darrell is next door, Toni bout 100 yards away but she keeps her caravan out side our place.. I should think that will be moved elsewhere and the MH put in its place...
    Donna lives a LONG way away from us.. Well by comparison ) She lives 3 miles away !! Though like us, they spend a lot of time away ( currently in Spain again )

    Dunno mate.. I think it is manual !
    I have just had a very quick external look and all in all not too bad at all !
    Yes, it looks a bit ratty but all only age related.
    It has a solar panel and a tow bar fitted.
    From what I gather the fan belt is not well but that may well be just an adjustment.. It is an A class and quite large !!
    I also gather they got it for virtually no money.. A really great first van for them in fact !

    From what you describe, worthless to anyone with no DIY skills but with a dad who does, just as good a new £100k van.

    You can cancel Zahora, there's no way you'll have the time now.

    There is an old and true saying... if you want something done, give it to a busy man !

    Personally and risking the wrath of Dame Penelope, it's no contest. Beni has everything in abundance and better weather.
