Well, we have had the motorhome for 2 weeks now and have spent the first week in it and it is great. MHO likes the automatic gearbox and also the cruise control which we think was an added extra. Plenty of space for all the 'junk' and plenty of space for living.
Just saw your post and see that you live in the Charente, same as we do.
We have a Laika low profile 666R, which we have had since 2005, find it a great van with plenty of space both for living and storage.
We live in Cherves about 8k north of Cognac, if you are in this area then give us a call, you can stop on our drive if you want a overnight stop.
