    After much searching, first for a storage space and then for a suitable length and layout van, we have now found what we want. We put a deposit down on a Rapido 741f today and will collect it in 3 weeks. Many thanks to all of you who have shared your knowledge on various matters. Now I can enjoy planning where to go!

    That's great. Bet you will get even more super excited the night before you go to collect it. Better than Santa Claus. :)

    Just one thing to check - at the foot end of the bed where the base panel joins the side wall underneath, its a comon fault for it to pull away from the outer wall - make sure you check its still securely attached.

    Thank you everyone for your good wishes. We got the storage sorted at the Gatwick Caravan club site on the proviso the van was under 22ft. They do have some longer spaces but none available at the time.
