    so impatient - got to wait till 17th to pick it up And it's killing me. Going away in our T5 on Monday for the week and so wish it was in the new one. Pick the new one up on a Thursday but working 12 hour shifts that weekend so will have to wait even longer :(

    Autosleeper Suffolk on Mercedes Sprinter base. Will be our first ever coach built. Gonna love having so much space.

    Thats great, a 2010 2.2 auto you will have loads of fun in that,
    ps Fullers are fantastic to deal with and there no quibble warranty is just that, our van rapido 996mm on a merc 3.0 auto blew its turbo whilst in portugal, absolutly no messing or worries everything was all sorted with one phone call to them they arranged everything we were given a courtesy vehicle and when the van was returned (in pristine condition) they had refilled the fuel tank full of diesel and a full valet was also done inside and out (it was filthy as we were 4 months into our annual wintering away) they even replaced the sterio speakers as one had apparently blown. They are a fantastic dealer the van was even competivley priced when we bought it. Cheers Andy.

    Thats really good to know, thank you. Am not used to dealing with the dealers so you have put my mind at rest. We can't pick it up till 17th as they want to service it, get all checks etc done and get it clean and ready for us.

    Just an update - first trip out this weekend to Lincoln show. Absolutely love it. The feeling of space after having such a small camper before is indescribable. Still digging out the instruction books every now and then to double check how things work but all in all just a few niggly problems. Have had solar panels fitted at the show. Now writing my shopping list of accessories to get today. Can't wait for our next trip away in it and definitely planning a trip to Europe for April.

    Had a quick chat with Sian yesterday on the stand and will be calling for a cuppa and sit down later to say hi to you all - it was a bit crowded yesterday when I passed.
