    Hello all, well I have lurked long enough (since last October) and as we are due to pick up new van next week thought I had better pay my debts to society and post.

    Spent the last forty years camping, started looking for a van a couple of years ago and finally decided, well the boss did, that a new one to meet our specific needs was the way to go. Ordered a Leisure Treka from Moto-Trek following last Octobers NEC show and should pick it up next week. Have gone for a highish transverse rear bed so can fit the bikes and outdoor kit inside. Need to get a roof-rack fitted and then first proper trip will be Germany in September.

    Now just need to assemble the rest of the clobber!

    sounds good, will you be going via Amsterdam ? ie Newcastle ferry.
    took that last year and booked through the c & cc . which I thought came in at a reasonable price, but im less than 6m length... enjoy Germany ..

    Welcome to a newbie from a newbie, joined the forum myself only a couple of days ago.
    Good luck with the handover for your van and enjoy your holiday in it.

    Take care,
    Norman.
