A ‘new’ motorhome

We have been hunting for some time now for something that has an ‘easier’ bed arrangement. Whilst away for long periods we got a bit fed up of making the bed every night. Whilst on those long ‘stay put’ ventures we also realised that you could, with an end lounge arrangement, leave the bed made up and still operate at the other end of the motorhome. The problem for us is that our driveway, whilst wide enough, isn’t bery long and we are limited to a 6 metre long motorhome. Few and far between – but at long last we have found a Hymer on a Mercedes base that is under 6 metres and has a pull down bed that resides above the cab seating area. So today I drove 632 miles round trip to view it and left a deposit for collection later in the month.

Admittedly, its not as pretty as our VW but it offers a much more practical layout inside, especially fortrips with the newly appointed grandson 😉

I’ll put up more details once we have got it home – along with details of how to go about buying our Calypso off us 🙂
