    We waited 6 months that was long enough, hopefully it will be better than you remember it, good luck with the handover.

    Yehaah! and off you go. Make sure you take a few essentials. Toolkit, small barbecue, ACSI membership, and a sense of humour for when things go wrong. All part of the fun.

    It's new, experience on here says don't cross the channel too soon and when you pick it up clarify if your warranty runs out over there in 90 days.

    Apart from that, enjoy.

    Only a 4 1/2 month wait for us but it's here at last. Went to the Peak District after collecting it last weekend and it's the New Forest on Friday. France also booked for August (yes I know it will be busy...). Hopefully the Channel Tunnel will be running OK by then.
