I'm in need of a stiff drink, £60 a night for a site, I nearly had a heart attack, there wasn't even any grass.
Me too Lenny!
No Grass maybe but I'll bet there was a nice line of Coke to be had off those 5 star luxury marble toilet worktops.:giggle:
Well the site owners did mention that Footballers and showbiz types used the site. :whistle2:

Tbf I can see Baileys every day of the week. I wanted to see things that were different. It just happened that the section about Baileys was where I decided the programme was boring.
Possibly the programme title was slightly misleading Jon I don't honestly think you missed much though, a fleeting glimpse of a Volkner Performance being built with full "wall out" not just slide outs, that is a genuine "million pound motorhome" and pretty "Mega" as well.

This is an interesting read on the big three from Schlusselfeld area, I just read it in Google Chrome as a second browser set to translate from German.

1. Middling programme tho nice to see a prog about my leisure hobby
2. I’ve owned a Bailey ( from new ) since 2013 and we love it , it’s had its moments and foibles over the years .
3. Snobbery on TV is never a good look
4. I’ve been to Concierge and it was fabulous
5. 14 motorhomes in 14 years ......... really ? I realise it’s his money to waste / fritter away but it does suggest poor fiscal judgement but as the saying goes “ a wise man and his money are not easily parted “
It’s not something I would appear on TV to tell the nation.

I think this motorhome is far more impressive than any shown on the program

Or he could of bought pre-loved vans used them for a year done a bit of tidying up and titivating and sold at a profit and start again, maybe the last one blows all his profit ;) just another way of looking at it.

If persons like / want change it does not indicate poor judgement or being a fool.

The same as persons who are consisered measured and shrewd are not misers

We are all different - thank god - as a walk around the rally field suggests

I know they portayed him as being fussy but I know many of the Alans purchases were just part of his quest to get better and better vans, He also comes across a lot of vans for sale and knows a bargain when he sees one. He's a very shrewd businessman, I'm sure he has had some losses on that ownership journey but I'd bet they've been few.

Tanya_and_Mick You know what they say Mick 😉 it's not what you're got it's how you use it. 😁

We keep thinking about loading the motorhome and having a few days away, we made a start and washed it after the red morrocan dust, it's now covered in yellow pollen. 🤔 Bob

Jensons buttons Rv i was looking at that apx 10 years ago stingray rv's was selling it.

It was beautiful one of the best rvs I've been in.

At the time it was for sale at £120,000 way way out of my league
Met a german couple on the Moselle last year who were trying to buy that exact one.
There was an issue with the length of it that prevented them from buying it.
Boy, could the wife drink !!!!! We got told off for being too noisy.

Ditto, but we missed the last red dust storm as it went north of us - we should try and meet on the road when our part of the world starts spinning in the right direction...

I would say Alan is a very wise man who has worked hard for his money. Those that know him love him. He is a very generous man both with money and his time. He doesn't give up where others would. A good bit of advertising for his firm DMS. Well done on that Alan.

It is . Am I reading correctly that Morelo want to develop a lower priced range?

We are booked on an Emperor pitch at Concierge Camping for 7 nights over the New Year 2021-22 as it looks like a fantastic site. We certainly have no delusions of grandeur. Planning a Britstop on the way down and back home again👍🏻
Can recommend it. We had one in December and the log burner was most welcome. They really have taken 'camping' to another level. It certainly ain't cheap, but there is a reason for that.

Caravan owner moved on to Motorhome
I was surprised that Iveco driver felt he had to stay on C/camping to meet with the right sort of people, I thought one if the best things about about Motorhoming and camping in general is meeting all sorts and not knowing who or what they are.
I have to admit that I was put off a bigger rig after watching a couple roll up to a walled garden site in Northumberland in an N& B and spend 40mins trying to park on grass , then spending the whole weekend sat in the thing watching TV. I didn’t see the point. At least we in our little PVC could drive off visit places see the sights, take pictures, have a snack and return to camp later.
Each to their own 😉
Me too Lenny!
No Grass maybe but I'll bet there was a nice line of Coke to be had off those 5 star luxury marble toilet worktops.:giggle:

Yeah.. I've stayed at that site too and I'm just a regular Joe. The owners are really nice folk, certainly not poe-faced at all. Its certainly well appointed and even has a nice machine that cleans out your toilet cassette for a quid.

Blimey they certainly know how to cream it, you pay all that money to say there then they find ways of charging you even more.
