    We got a call today at 6.45pm to say our fifth wheel had arrived with the dealer in Mildenhall, Suffolk who has imported it into this country for us. We couldn't wait to have a look at it, so he kindly stayed back and allowed us time this evening to whizz over to take a look (only 20 mins. from where we live).

    We ordered this back in December and were expecting delivery before now, but thankfully we'll get to spend a little time in it before we head off to the States end of May.

    All being well we should get it by this weekend following the conversion and everything else that needs doing, move our belongings into it and head off to the MHF meet at Peterborough next week.

    It's so much better than we expected, going to have another look tomorrow when we will have more time, didn't want to hold them up too much as they were kind enough to stay with us for an hour or so this evening.

    We have taken some pictures of the inside, will get more pictures tommorrow to put on here, that's if anyone is interested.
