    We've been up to Birtley this morning to have another look at the Burstner T625 Harmony which we saw last week.

    It ticks a heck of a lot of the items on our list and we managed to negotiate an acceptable price so we've put a deposit down.

    Even remembered to make sure it will get a cam belt change as part of the pre-delivery service :Smile:

    A bit bigger than the old autoquest then, and looks like plenty of storage. I hope it treats you well and you enjoy every mile

    Thanks David. Yes, we were thinking about a van a bit bigger with fixed bed so that suits. Must be twice as much storage room as the Autoquest.

    Glad to hear you have found another van, hope it does all you want.

    Think you will find the fixed bed a real godsend I know we did, great to be able to just fall into bed, at any time of day.

    Best of luck bet you can't wait to collect now.

    Sounds good. I hope all goes well with it.

    I look forward to seeing you at a few events again this year.

    Excellent.

    You'll be parking with the top table now :Sad:

    Marjal for a test run - you know it makes sense.

    Come on Sundance, you are getting the European bug, get a passport and get yourself over to France, you know it makes sense....



    I am really pleased that you have a new passion waggon, ISO92200

    Ain't got no passport. It's hard enough getting one for "sarf" never mind "abroad" :Laughing:

    You slayed the insurers, you found The Right Van, how hard can a passport be.

    Burstners sulk if they don't get a regular taste of the mainland.

    This is the one Griff. Looks a lot better in real life than in the photos.

    Yes, but I wanted to slay the insurers and find the right van.

    Worry not Brian, you can buy me a beer at Misterton or Chester :Laughing:

    Oh yes, plenty of room on the drive :Smile: Irony was that the other one was only moved off the drive to avoid the risk of damage whilst the roofers were working :Smile:
