    Picked up our WildAx Aurora on Thursday - it's brill!

    Great to drive - not moved into it yet - still sorting out what is going in it and what is staying in the caravan :Wink:

    Going to spend a few days getting things sorted then off the see Dave Newell to get cruise control fitted :thumb: - then a quick whizz around the country to try it out for a few miles before we head off to Spain towing the caravan!:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    If you see us on the road give us a wave!

    Great news but what a pity the timing is wrong - you'll miss the Windy Harbour winter :Laughing:

    Get Dave to fit a solar panel for you as well. The one he fitted for us is great.

    It already IS winter on Windy Harbour - it's flippin' freezin'!

    We've had a solar panel put on by WildAx Graham. The cruise control was the only thing they didn't do.:Smile:

    What a great piece of news Marie and Rex! Must have been hard to wait for it that long!

    Any chance you'll be coming my way or, still wanting to go straight down by ferry?

    BRILLIANT.

    Well done Baby Sis.

    You can leave the caravan at the top of the track and the van will fly up and down QMJ's drive.

    Bring pies...

    Sorry Frankie - we're heading straight down to Zahora - don't fancy messing about on a long journey with the caravan behind us! See you in the spring if not before xoxxoox :cry-smile:

    Sorry Big Bro not chancing QMJ this year!! Anyway we've still got a front wheel drive van - you need to put a tarmac drive in for us! Or make sure it doesn't rain! :Wink::Wink::Wink: xoxox

    You started the trend and I'm your first convert.:Blush: I have my Autocruise Pace so all I need is the caravan. Watch this space.
    Hope to be on that Santander or Bilbao ferry with caravan in tow, by the end of the month.:thumb:

    We're planning to be on the Plymouth Santander on Oct 28th - if we don't make that it will have to be one out of Portsmouth - may see you on the trip!:Smile:

    Don't forget you do not have much weight to play with in the Caravan.

    I am speaking from experience :Sad::Sad::Eeek:

    Weighed ours on the move to the new site 250kgs over weight, Now got to work out what can be removed before the trip to Spain. :Eeek::Eeek::Eek!::Eek!::Eek!:
