It's here!

Good evening

Just a quick post - its here - its arrived - our new (to us) home on wheels.

Not a VW camper but a caravan :) If Wayne Hemmingway has decided that the 90's are vintage enough for his Vintage Festival this summer - then our new toy can be described as 'vintage'!!

Here he/she is (not named yet) in all its 22 year old caravan glory;

It needs a bit of a clean inside and out as its not been used this year. However it has lots of space and potential. I shall take some before pics tomorrow and I'm sure over the next few months after pics will be taken as we head out and about on our hols :)

MrVV left Suffolk by 3am this morning - called me from Yorkshire by 6.30am where he was having breakfast - had time to go via bits of the Lake District before collecting the caravan as planned at 10am. After a quick tour of how things worked and what goes where he was heading home. The sat-nav said by 6pm and he was here showing up around by 6.05pm!! What a day he's had - I don't think he'll be late to bed tonight!

BTW I didn't burst - just had that feeling all day of excitement - like a small child gets on Christmas Eve!! (actually I still get that Christmas Eve too!!).

Okay. So I was being thick wondering how he was going to drive two motors back...
Sleep well Mr VV and you, Missus. Stop dreaming and planning and get some Kip.

Woo hoo! How exciting. I'm looking forward to seeing it transformed. It'll be like having your own play house. I have to say I wouldn't fancy towing one though! Have fun...

Fantastic! I am SO envious! You must show some more interior pics of it. I love, love, love caravans.

Well done Mr VV for doing that drive! I'm very impressed.
