    Hi All

    We have only had a M/H for 3 1/2 years and have meet lots and lots of lovely folks/friends:Cool:

    However as some of you already know, we are planning to undertake a new chapter in our life. We currently work for ourselves here in Stoke on Trent, where we supply industry and the licenced trade with consumables.

    But we have put both the house and the business up for sale, and are planning on moving down to the south coast, somewhere near Weymouth/Dorchester, where we will start up a whole new business, doing something totally new - not quite sure what but have several ideas (must be mad).

    Now the sad bit:cry:, to help fund the whole thing we are going to sell our beloved Eura Mobil Integra 680. It is a 2004/04, 4 berth A class, with 23k on the clock, it has full service history including habitation by Mark at CLS, and engine service, cambelt, mot, and axle's greased by Geo, (Thanks guys)

    I would describe it as immaculate, and will be selling it with complete confidence that who ever buys it will be delighted. It's well kitted out having Solar, Gaslow, Sat dish, twin Elecsol leisure batteries, inverter, etc. We're non smoker's and she's fully winterised down to -20c so great for fulltiming/skiing.

    We will be using it for the Half term holiday at the end of October, after which we will put it up for sale, so if anyone would like first refusal, let us know (if we win the lottery:Rofl1: we won't sell her)

    We will be selling her at a fair price, but won't be giving her away.

    South coast is a long way from Scarborough, still a move for the better I think, why not wait and see if you can get away with not selling it first. If I win the lottery first I'll be in touch. Good luck and don't be a stranger to the site you are and will always be a funster.:thumb:

    I know this must be an exciting time in your lives, and you have to try things out otherwise you will have regrets.

    Your motorhome is a fantastic buy for someone, a great piece of kit.

    I hope that you will buy a cheaper motorhome or caravan, so that you can still come along to some of the meets.

    I wish you well in your venture, keep in touch.

    Pat and Neil

    Best of luck with your new life.

    There is something about the air in Hampshire/Dorset. I could tell when I cross the border blindfold ( seriously ) Always been my favorite part of the country.

    I may be interested in your van. I would much prefer to buy a 'known' one if it falls within my price range ( max 50p :BigGrin:) When you get a round tuit I would love to know more about the layout etc.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for all your kind words of support:thumb:, and we would like to assure you we do not intend on leaving the funsters, you don't get away that easy:Rofl1:

    We have really enjoyed all the get togethers, and once we're back on our feet, we will look to attend/organise some meets with/for you southern softies:Rofl1: (done the full Sunday morning course on "How to make friends and influence people:Eeek:)

    It may mean hiring a M/H or buy a caravan for a couple of years, but we love motorhoming and it won't be long before normal service is resumed.

    Graham, Kay, Chelsea n Sonny the grumpy Dobey

    No, no, you are out of date.

    Just last week in the Schweiznacht clinic in Zurich a team of 4 surgeons 2 anaesthetists and 17 nurses performed a 17 hour operation on a Funster and declared him cured.

    His funeral is tomorrow.

    They say that based on this procedure the next patient should live.

    Softies, only in the centre, otherwise I am a hard woman.

    We are only soft because we dont do harsh winters and have too much sun down here in the south.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    cant wait to convert you.

    I will never be able to go north of coventry now, but might be sent there soon:Rofl1:

    Regards Pat and Neil

    I'm sure sacrificing the van will be well worth it. Dorset is a lovely county and I'm very envious.

    Dorset is a really beautiful part of the world and we wish you every success for your new life and future
    Hope that you can manage to set this up and keep the van, but if not hope you get a new van to join us soon.

    Although we wish you good fortune in your new venture, feel a bit sad that you are selling your van, after all we've only just met, and I'm sure, if it's possible, we will meet again, certainly hope so.
    GOOD LUCK :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Hi Losos

    On a trip to Germany we went to the Eura Mobil factory and they confirmed that Eura Mobil is the only manufacturer to certificate their vans down to -20

    they said that there maybe other manufacturer's whose vans may take this level of cold, but they havn't had them tested

    We took ours to Scotland, Skiing, it was -10/-12c and the van was toasty warm and the heater was only on tickover:thumb:

    Not sure if this is good news or not, but it certainly makes thing seem a lot more real

    We've received an offer on the house, although the buyer needs to sell first, its a least a start, we also have another interested party, but they too have to sell:cry: at least things are moving

    anyway, guess we'll have to do some serious looking around this coming week:thumb:
