    HI! everyone, Im John from Chandlers Ford in Eastleigh. New to motorhoming, been a lifelong dream to own a motorhome. About to take early retirement and see some of the UK. Bought an Elddis 115 last year, but i wanted more of a camper van, so i now own a Devon Astec 2008, panel van conversion, rear lounge, more to my liking. Hope to meet some of you at Peterborough.:thumb:

    Still hunting for our first mh.

    Out of curiosity, what were your reasons for changing from an Elddis to the Devon ?

    re switching from elddis

    Didnt do enough research, had the chance of a low mileage van, went from one extreme to another. Once i spotted the Devon, it was the one for me. I didnt have 42 k to spend on an Adria so initially went for the elddis 115. Dealer made a huge profit from me as he will have initially purchased both the elddis and the Devon for a song. I am happier with this product and will also use it as daily transport when i retire in 2 months time. Basically i got it wrong:cry:

    Hello and welcome. Can't think of Chandlers Ford without thinking of B&Q.
