Default Withdrawal

Am suffering from severe withdrawal symptoms at the moment

Cant do with out a motorhome for such a long period of time.

Aint joking

Missed 2 meets already and was so looking forward to the newark show but theres no chance of our motorhome being repaired in time.#

We havent even had the samples for the replacement bathroom yet

and they cant get a new back for it

so gutted

I feel like a caged animal like a prisoner who hasnt been convicted its a real weird feeling

If we dont get to peterborough am gonna go insane!!!! and thats over a month away

cant believe how lost we have felt without a mh

its quite addictive

do I need to declare my addiction am I going insane?????

Wow theres nothing like freedom but gooodnessssss freedom curtailment is a bitter blow

so what we gonna do when we are too old to drive

I hope your camping again soon Gail. We know how you feel. We went without a van for a year. We were in a bit of a mess and had to sell our beloved Autotrail Pullman so we could pay wages to our employees. That was a horrible 12 months. Totally skint with no van to escape in= no fun at all. Hopefully though, you'll be back on the road in no time

Long-term members of this forum are already registered, so no need.

Somebody needs to organise a motorhome show in Essex early in the year...

...or Jim needs to create the MHFun equivalent of a pop-up shop - dial an emergency number and the pop-up Funster meet gets delivered to your door. Not quite the same as getting away in the van, but you might not care

(Hope it all gets sorted out as quickly as possible)

Our commiserations Gail.

We were getting withdrawal symptoms having not been able to get away since New Year so took the old gal out to the seaside for the day last Sunday.

Parked right by the beach at the Fluyders end at Felixstowe. The sea was dead flat. We respectively hobbled and walked along to the prom returning for a brew up.

Actually ... we took two old Gal's. Bessie and Robin's Mum!

I think the suggestion of asking for a loan van has to be worth a follow-up with the insurance company. It's not your fault they can't get the parts.

We'll raise one for you at Newark.

Hi Gail, hope they manage to get things fixed sooner rather than later and hope they do a good job - that's a nice van. Where is it being fixed?
