    Our new to us Campscout picked up while Gertrude was blowing a hoolie, it was sad to say bye to Bertha.
    Will put a dealer review soon but in the meantime a short thank you to Roseisle Motors in Whitecraig for excellent and very friendly service, love the card they gave us. 20160129_125103.jpg

    We are taking her for a drive to cabin tomorrow weather permitting and if cabin not habitable will stay in Gertie but must admit to being worried about trees falling on top of her.

    Read your post on "what you are doing at the weekend" bad news about the cabin, but good news about Gertie! ( will you change your avatar name?!!) I love the globecar/ possil vans and am trying to persuade Rob our next van will be one!! Enjoy!

    Gave that a like bb, but when I read it again it seemed inappropriate. Best wishes and I hope you're thrilled to bits with the van.......looking at the weekend thread to find out about the cabin.
    Be safe.

    Great van. Love ours. Any questions, shout up.

    Don't lean on the worktop extension! Be very careful with the lights over the beds. They are very easy to hit if you pack the beds upright to use the space for transporting stuff.

    If you have a FloGas stockist near you (or if they deliver), you can get two of their 11kg cylinders in the gas locker. A 13kg Calor will go in (just), but then there is only room for a 6kg beside it.

    It took me months to realise that the shower head trigger can be locked in the 'on' position!

    The high level fridge is brilliant, but don't ever forget to latch the door - if it flies open stuff goes so much further!
