    Hi Folks,

    Day after I retired in 2003 I flew to USA and bought a new Chinook Concourse (21ft Ford V10 E350 Dual rear Wheel). After registering it in the US my wife and I toured the US in it for a few months and when it was old enough etc under the old customs rules we brought it back to the UK tax and duty free. Todate no problems with it at all and is mainly used in France. Unfortunately Chinook went bust but we have manufacturers' brochures and installation manuals for every piece of equipment.
    Installed an Oyster Satelite dish but have kept the 110volt generator and system and use a very good 12V to 240v inverter to power the Oyster and Sky Sat equipment.
    Get about 13/14mpg at 65mph
