Hi All,

Well after an epic, windy, rainy journey starting in Denmark on Monday afternoon we finally arrived home with our new Weinsberg Motorhome safe & sound early yesterday evening :D.
Our journey home started around 4.00pm Denmark time after inspecting the motorhome and having a quick tour. From there we drove to Calais via, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium & France. We were going to take a ferry from Holland but they were all evening sailings.
On the way home we had a couple of short breaks for refreshments and a quick nap. On one of these breaks on a motorway service station in Holland in the dead of night we heard a couple of noises from the outside. My wife being the lighter sleeper got up and to her horror :eek: there was a man in a hoodie trying to open the passenger door. She screamed and I got up and ran down the van to the window where I "politely" :mad: told him to go away. This he did but with his boot open so we couldn't get his number plate. That woke me up so we started on our journey home again. We arrived at Calais around 8.00am on Tuesday morning. All the ferries were delayed due to the weather so we got on the first available at 10.30am French time.
The motorhome drove like a dream, even with the battering winds from side to side or head-on. (Never had a tailwind :().

Now to start the process of registering her with the DVLA. Should be fun :confused:.

Didn't take many photo's as we were just concentrating on getting her home.

I'll post some photo's of the inside later as the ambient lighting is something else and something we weren't expecting. On the whole we are delighted, there a couple of little niggles but I'll sort them.

Thanks Antony

The attempted thief situation must have been scary. Thats when my dog comes on handy.

Your MH looks nice and big. Wishing you happy motorhoming for many years to come.

Started work on the conversion to UK spec.

First was the speedo:

From this:

To this:

Swopped the reverse light & fog lights over & they both work :D

Next will be the front headlights. I haven't quite decided whether to buy new RHD spec ones and fit them or just add the beam benders. Any advice would be welcomed but bear in mind I have to obtain a IVA 1 C certicfication once it's MOT'd.

A couple of interior shots:

Well after being let down :mad: regarding an MOT booking on Saturday I finally got it to a reliable garage tonight.
A big THANKS to all at Mercedes, Road Range, Deeside for getting her tested and I'm pleased to say she PASSED with flying colours :D. In the words of one of the mechanics there " She's MINT (y)"

Next up the IVA application form & test.

Thanks Antony
