    Yes, an old coachbuilt, that is currently living in shame at the garage after giving up on taking us to Scotland, where among other things we were going to give the Truma its first decent blast.

    Not to mention the fact that being north of the border, we were looking forward to opening a scottle of botch, of course!

    I'm still jealous.

    ... Oh 'eck, nothing TOO drastic I hope!?

    Ours is a late 91 A-class and so far has behaved very well, touch wood. :RollEyes:

    Not necessarily serious, but irritatingly it's an overheating problem that's taking a long time to fix properly.

    New thermostat, new rad cap, head gasket ok, hoses seem ok. Heater intermittent suggesting maybe an air lock. Rad itself looks ok.

    Have to say it's been brilliant up to now though, took us to the Pyrenees and back, around the Peak District and to numerous motorhome shows. We love the Dethleffs interior style, too (ours is a 1994 van).

    Finished that scottle yet?
