    I am beyond excited right now, we have just bought the Hymer B774 that we viewed last week after a successful test drive this morning. The next 2 weeks are going to go way too slow for me until we can go and collect it. I feel like a kid at Christmas :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Congratulations.

    If thats theone you looked at a edgehill it looks great.
    Just make sure it gets the update for the Oyster85 if not you will not get Astra2

    Start a blog on your travels so we can all be envious.

    It is the one from Edgehill, Lee is updating the code for the dish but warned us it will change twice more this year. I have started a blog and as soon as I have inputted the background I will post the address on here and then keep it up to date as we travel. In the space of 2 weeks I have handed my notice in and found our new home, I am beyond excited :thumb:

    We were a bit nervous about the age of it as it's a 2004 model but once we looked in it we saw it was in better condition than a lot of the newer motorhomes we had viewed. So well built. :thumb:

    Downgrading from a Burstner to a Hymer - brings shame on the North East :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hope you enjoy the new van :Smile:

    We bought our 2003 Burstner almost 2 years ago, wondering whether it would be a bit of a stop gap (we had just had our van written off by Asda, see Albums :BigGrin: ).

    We've had to sort out one or two problems but spent way less than we might have on a newer van and, as other threads have shown, had far fewer problems than some.

    Hope you enjoy your van :Smile:

    Congratulations on the new van, it looks lovely. We are going to see another one tomorrow, bit of a difference in ages and budgets though :Rofl1: it' a 1999 Tabbert.
