    Well we have went and done it, put a deposit down on the Adria Matrix today so all donations welcome :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Said they should have it ready by the end of the week although its unlikely I will be able to get down then to collect so should have it with in the next week or two and ready for the Chester food and drink rally. So everyone is welcome to have a look as long as they bring me a drink :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Just incase Dave,( Maxsdad) is going forget the Boddingtons I'll let you in for free :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Lucky devil. We looked at the Matrix and it would be our weapon of choice if we were to upgrade anytime soon :)

    Hi Jill we have been looking for one for about a year after seeing them new at the Lincoln show and just loved the layout and the build quality, so finally found a two year old one with under 13k and hardly used within our budget so thought sod it no point saving for a rainy day when you live in Scotland :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Hi thanks for the comments don't quote me as I have looked at so many different vans the payload is around the 500 mark but we are getting it uprated and again can't remember the exact figure somewhere around an extra 250 - 300k.

    We don't carry massive weight just need room for winter stuff like wellies and waterproofs, hang on we actually need them in the summer too :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    were having to uprate ourselves - did a weigh in last year and as far as we could remember we were fully loaded, just minus the dogs - who are only 20Kg - and we were 80kg under the magic 3500

    weigh in on the way back from the cheshire meet before xmas and we were at 3610 - a smidge over, so had it reweighed closer to home as i thought that must be wrong

    and with most none essentials out full water etc - we were at 3520:whatthe:

    so the bridge lat year must have been way out or we werent as full as we thought we were..and we dont even take that much stuff (i dont anyway:roflmto:)

    is it guided tours at chester then, and if so will we need slippers?
