    After a year of thinking, talking, visiting shows and research, we've finally found our first motorhome, a Hymer B584 first registered in 2000; Aunt Flo. Although pretty early on we decided we wanted a Hymer she's not the model or year we thought we wanted. However some very good advice from Sue and Bob LeResche at Bundesvan made us realise that she's perfect for our very first motorhome. At just under 6 metres long and 2.2 wide she's fairly manoeuvrable and is less than half the price we were thinking of paying. We pick her up in two weeks and we can't wait!

    Glad you've found your perfect motorhome. You might want to change the name though!

    Aunt Flo is a popular euphemism referring to the menstrual cycle :LOL:

    Now that's what I call salesmanship.

    On the contrary. They talked us down from a more expensive purchase I can't recommend them highly enough

    Welcome! I guess Aunt Flo is a "left hooker" to pile on the euphemisms. Perfect for Europe, are you planning to go there? :)

    Absolutely, and yes her left hook is one of her more endearing features!

    Well done - exciting times ahead.:clap:

    We had a couple of trips down to Bundesvan when it was Nick.....who was great, glad to hear the new folk are carrying on in the same way.

    I think one or two folk have that model on here.

    Happy & safe travels:smiley:
