    The day finally arrive and yesterday we picked our 'new to us' van up. We were SO giddy! We cracked open the champagne and just sat in her.:drinks:
    We are going to the Southport rally on Friday to try her out and no doubt be making a snagging list-which seems 'par for the course' these days despite whatever 'quality name' is on the decals/badge.
    Hope to meet fellow Carthago'ers?
    We will certainly be keeping an eye on this forum, as we are also newbie Motorhomers.

    Yea of little faith, it not British built.:)
    The Carthago owners Club is well worth joining very active with good meetings, much better than the Hymer club which is getting a bit stayed.


    I'm getting tempted again with either a Chic 4.9 or 5.0 if I can convince myself to cope with the washroom/toilet (just not up to the same standard as Hymer washrooms) everything else probably a bit better. My financial adviser may put the block on it but I'm working on that, 6 months of whinging I usually get my own way just have to wear her down.:)
    Our Exsis is OK but it's built to a weight and a couple of years on now we have upgraded to 3850kg might as well have a decent quality van, so I would like to change to either aHymer B Class PL or a Chic C-Line.
