    Sorry for the delay guys but we picked Woody up from Travelworld last Friday (after being kept waiting 2 hours :cry:) and got it home just in time to pack it up with a few bits and pieces and drive over to the Hollyfast meet near Coventry.
    Driving it in the dark was an experience I must say, but first impressions are that it is absolutely fantastic :thumb::thumb:
    I have been working all this week and not had a chance to report back on our purchase, or in fact start to do some of the things that I want to do to it..... Yes Linda, I will be calling :Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Anyway I have put up a few pictures HERE so that you can see what it is that we have landed ourselves.
    Needless to say, we are absolutely thrilled with our Fleetwood and it has everything that we wanted (and more) so I can see us holding onto it for a while :Laughing:
    Hope that you enjoy the pics

    Keith

    Thanks all for your kind comments, we are absolutely thrilled with it :thumb: We would have dragged it out again this weekend (just to be sure that we liked it you understand :Laughing:), but my daughter is visiting from Exeter and we thought it best that we were in :Laughing:
    Don't mention the awning Chris :Eeek: It has a rip in the fabric that I didn't check before buying it and it is going to cost hundreds to fix (TW did not feel inclined to have it sorted out.......) and the mechanism feels really cranky so I guess it will be a trip up to see them to get it sorted out in the new year, unless I can find someone more local who knows these awnings :Eeek:
    Anyway, thanks again all :thumb:

    Keith

    Hi Dave
    GVWR=16000 lbs, haven't checked the payload yet, but I'm sure it will be plenty :Laughing: Driving it is awesome mate, just hear the motor occasionally when it changes down for a hill and it is soooooo quiet :thumb: The whole driving experience is totally different to a front engined bus mate, difficult to describe but totally different.
    We love it :Laughing:

    Thanks John :Smile:
    Ken, we would have bought that one if we had known about it :Laughing: We certainly will be using it more than him..... We have already had our first weekend away even though we had only paid for it hours earlier :Laughing: and we will be away at Thornton Holt, in Notts next weekend if anyone would like to come along...
    Mark you will not be the first to have a drink in Woody, that happened last weekend when there where 10 of us sat having a social christening evening, but we look forward to seeing you all again and sharing a drink with you mate :thumb:
    Thanks again for all your kind words, we look forward to meeting up with you all at future meets :BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Keith
