    "You must be rolling in it"
    My response:
    "Yeah, seeing as it's got 4 wheels that's exactly what we intend to do"

    "We thought about getting one of those, can we have a look inside?"
    "I bet it uses a lot of petrol "( it's diesel!)
    In France.." It's a Peugeot, do you like it? I didn't think they made camping cars"
    "We're going to buy one when we retire"
    " What do you do when you go out for the day, do people pinch your pitch?"

    My neighbour told me, "It's like living next to a block of flats"!

    For the record it sits nicely on my drive and we are detached! :worried:

    Duplicates of above but:-

    Son - I hang my head in shame. Glad I left home (said to try and wind me up. Failed)
    Daughter - how much did it cost? (Inheritance thing......)
    Son in Law - I'm just doing my test for my heavy good licence (not very subtle, is he?)
    Neighbour - "oh no!" Followed by "Mike has always wanted one" (they are now in their second)
    Another neighbour - Yorkshire origins - "do you think we could borrow it sometime, just to see if we like them?" No, go hire one you freeloading gits (they had tried the same with above neighbours house in France)
    Various people - "cor......can we have a look inside?"

    My neighbour says ours is a sunblocker! Good job we get on with him and he was only joking.

    When I picked up my first van I was beeped by a white van man at a roundabout just off the A2.

    I would my window down ( with a little trepidation) and he shouted (with a smiley face) " How the f*** can you afford one of those?"

    My answer that it was inherited money seem to please him well enough:)

    "you need a heavy goods to drive that, you know".
    No you don't, and i have a class one anyway!

    "What does THAT do to a gallon"?
    The same as yours sat here on site! or Not sure, and i don't care!

    "I wouldn't have one if you paid me".
    You probably can't afford one, or drive one, so no fear of getting paid!

    Oh, I forgot our lovely neighbours comment. We lived in a detached house with a driveway. Van was parked on the drive facing into the house and was about a metre short of the end of the drive.
    Mother in Law had parked her car opposite his driveway.
    " Can you ask Margaret to move her car, it difficult enough to get off the drive with That parked there"!
    That was the only time in almost a year that he mentioned the van.
    We moved.

    We have a friend who's partner has recently bought a newer motorhome and now her "children" have refused to speak to her as they think she has spent their inheritance on the vehicle.

    It is so sad, as she, and her partner, are lovely people.
