    Hello Pete and Maureen

    Lots of good stuff here and good people.

    You will get some excellent advice, you will get some condescending rubbish.

    It's all in the game.

    It doesn't really matter what your vehicle is, as long as you get your fun out of it.

    You have started a superb hobby, may you have many happy travels.

    Any advice I can give drop a private mail.

    Your both yunks yet. ( i.e. young ones yet )

    Hi Pete and Maureen,welcome to m/h fun,
    you are never to old to start a new hobby,
    you will both find it ,a new way of life,
    Holdsworth first started off making m/h conversions,
    at Woodley (just outside Reading Berkshire)
    they were a family run business,
    they would buy in the various vans new,
    the first job they would do,was cut the top off ready for conversion.
    I used to deliver to them,2/3 times a week.
    very interesting the way they were built.
    this is where Douglas Barder lost both legs,
    on the airfield. Tony
