    Thanks Bud, we wont be heartbroken if the right deal can't be done. It is afterall nearly winter so they'll be stuck for buyers of the one sent direct from the factory.
    Always next year and more money in the coffers:thumb:

    Who do you know showing Pilotes as you aren't then, Pierre? NEC is dead handy, John's Cross ain't, but could be if you do more than talk the talk in the event that pousser comes to bouscouler !! LOL

    Whilst I hit the first button, it isn't my intention to buy just yet, more to get a feel.

    Will be looking long and hard at Burstner though, just so I can P*ss ShiftZZ off even more..........Griff

    I have ordered a new Autotrail and it will be delivered at the end of October so I suspect it is one they have at the show. Also, looking for any bargains that I probably don't need. Going on Saturday with my brother in law who is looking for a caravan.

    We're not going either, I would never bother with an indoor show, its not a natural environment for a MH

    Interesting thread and some nice MH's being ordered or about to be, but I have a general question.

    The payloads appear to be very small. How do you get over that if you are off for 2 or 3 weeks abroad say where you take a lot of stuff with you? That of course is without the extras like solar panels, sat dish, bikes etc etc etc... or am I missing something?

    nut kicker

    going hopefully, to kick a dealer in the nuts, by going to this "new" NCC idea to make dealers toe the line :Rofl1: play fair :Rofl1: not do proper checks on new motor homes but tick the charts that say checked, then hide behind warranties, etc etc,:cry:
    before blacking my dealers name on the radio, and any forum that will let me name them:thumb:

    We still never have , or even wanted to go to a show yet. :Blush:
    We never went to a caravan/ tent one either , all the years we owned several of those.
    Who knows , once we start planning the PVC years down the line, we may go to one , to check out various layouts . But we know what we want already so ....
    Ralph tends to research on line , for bits n pieces we need , then buys on line too.
    So i ticked the last one . As thats the one it would be , if i had naff all else to do hahaha

    Well we are going to research POSSIBLY changing our van. Fact is, it's the largest selection of brand new vans on display locally (about 20 mins) that you don't have to go and find someone with a key, to open up for you to view.

    It won't rain inside, neither will the wind blow me away, there are toilets, nobody can actually sell us one (because we have one to P/X so they can't value that properly, only talk ballpark) and on Weds they won't be desperate yet anyway.
