    I think I spent longer thinking about spending a tenner to join your forum than Kim and I did about spending £40k + on a brand new Roller Team. We were originally getting a Benimar but the payload was too low so opted for a 695 and get it towards the end of April when the weather will hopefully be fantastic for our debut on tour. Scary but very excited! Loads to learn but no water butts and jockey wheels, how I will miss them!!

    We sold the caravan a few weeks ago after 2 great years but feel that the mobile home will suit us better.

    Scotland this year, Europe thereafter with weekends here and there.

    My last van was an 2011 Auto Roller 100 fixed bed and cavernous garage on 6.18 metre van. It had a payload of nearly 800kgs and never let us down in 3 years of ownership. Also the few faults we had on the habitation side Auto Trail were great with their warranty.

    Thanks John, I thought we had received all our welcomes. 2 weeks on Saturday till we get our brand new van. Golf holiday in Turkey between now and then to take my mind off the excitement!
