    Have a good trip tomorrow and then come back and join the fun.

    Have a look at the downloads for a handover checklist, you're bound to forget something in the excitement tomorrow and any good seller won't mind you going through a list with him. :Doh:

    Well done Marymary... enjoy...

    I took the first trip in the first camper I owned (a £60 VW Splitty) and only drove 5 miles (of the 90 to do) before I pulled over, made myself a sandwich and a hot drink and turned in!!!

    Hi Mary. Tell us how your trip home was. I'm thinking I need to get away again since I am hanging onto everyone else's excitement.

    well, picked up in Bristol and then stopped over at a site at Slimbridge with my friend who'd driven me down....was a bit stressy on the busy m4/5 joining bit!! Anyway, went and found our friends house for something to eat then came back to play house....lovely cosy night with the blown convector heating, in fact a bit too warm and I nearly collapsed with heat exhaustion when I got up for the loo - note to self, remember to leave loo door open next time!! Couldn't sleep for excitement and was still awake at 3 planning.....need an early night tonight!:RollEyes: But I'm really pleased, it was great to drive, very comfy position and no rolling like my older autosleeper, and nippy too although there was nothing in it of course! Might venture out next weekend......ummmm, now to empty the garage and restock......::bigsmile:

    Hi Mary, know what you mean about getting " bit stressy on the busy m4/5 joining bit ! " Not a very good junction. :Doh:
