    Anyone ever wonder what happened to their old motorhome? We full timed for three years in our Bessacar E630, and I often wonder what travels it is going on now! It's still on the road, according to the MOT website. Reg started FJ61 - belong to a funster by any chance?

    Many years ago we traded in our Swift Royale, which we had bought new.

    It was three years old 32,000miles and in immaculate condition.

    Two years later we spotted it on a campsite and thought we would say hello to the new owners. As we approached it we saw all the dents and scrapes it had acquired in two years. We then saw the two bikes leaning against the van and the dents the handlebars were making in the sides. The rear skirt was split and torn too.

    We didn't have the heart to talk to someone who had done that to our pride and joy.:(

    Sad, l know. But that's the way we felt.

    Our old van is now owned by a funster :) and hopefully continuing her adventures.
    We put a huge dint in her and she didn't mind so she would be very forgiving to any other owner :)
