    Went and picked up our "Eccles Majestic" this morning...

    Only about a 25 mile drive home, but quite impressed..... Nice driving position, fairly high up.. (Not as high as an "A" class) but nice all the same..

    Every thing to hand Nob wise.. :giggler:

    Lot`s of buttons on the steering wheel.. and gear lever right by the steering wheel...

    Reasonable gearing, good bit of grunt low down and high up.. nice gearbox... and only 2 years or 20K miles servicing ...

    Free tracker for 3 months then pay.. :Eeek: Thatcham Cat 1 and immobiliser..

    And a few goody`s thrown in.. And a "Majestic logo umbrella as well.. :cooler::rofl:

    Only gripes are.............. Only one TV swing out arm and that is in the bedroom... and would not swing out enough to turn so you can see it from the lounge.. to take our 48inch TV...:RollEyes:

    And after my bootiful Rapido... Judy is fast running out of storage space on the kitchen side of things.... :blush:

    I have plenty of room for my gear in the under seat storage and out side lockers...

    And I think "Tesco`s Home delivery Van`s) have morre kerb appeal than the back of this thing.... but should make for easy washing, I suppose ...

    So next Thursday after dropping Daisy off at the kennels..... orf up to North Yorkshire for a few days to see if we can find another home with a view....

    But not up the side of a bleedin mountain this time... :doh:

    Judy said I could easily drive this one.... :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :shake: :crying: :crying: :crying:

    Hi from Phil.
    Just remember one thing. The more space you have, the more you will fill it up with "stuff"
    Smaller can be good. Enjoy your travels again.

    Sounds good. If it's new I would certainly get an interim oil change after a year, I worked out my new MH chassis between waiting for the conversion, conversion and being on the forecourt was already a year old presumably with the same oil in it. Making the oil being 3 years old by the time the official service date came up !!!!!
