Hi Tin, Sleepingbag and Wildaxers,
Yes, we are looking forward to enjoying our Aurora leisure with many trips. An owners' club would be great! Duncan said he would deliver our "Narnia" ( this is the name we give for this one. We had special names for our2 previous M'van.) next Tuesday, wartch this space see if he can manage it. So far, we are very happy with Duncan & his team. I am a fairly demanding person ( reasonable kind), he & Chris were really wonderful. I know they had tried their best to accommodate my demand & my mother's needs. It will be interesting to see if there are someone out there more demanding than I have been.
We shall use Narnia very often. I like to take mother out whenever I can, that will be about 4 days a week, and we probably will take long trips 8-10 times a year. The day outings we hope to be able to take some house bound or slightly disabled friends to join us. I can serve meals in the rear lounge. When we go away for longer trip, the rear lounge will be a fixed double bed which can also be a single bed with only 2/3 at the rear slide out. When mother gets older she would find getting in and out of the bed through the narrow gap difficult. Then I shall need to make up the front lounge at night. At least we still would have a single fixed bed at the back, I can just chuck all my bedding on it in the morning. I had enough of those rolling up the duvet / sleepings. I plan and hope to have minimal fiddling with bed making or performing any transfiguration enroute. I play the harp, which mother loves. I have 4 harps ranged from 22 strings bardic harp to the big size grand concert harp. But I shall bring along my 34 strings Clarsach, a Scottish lever harp. AND we are in ernest preparation to get our dear Tabby Benjamin Disreali get used to harness. We don't want to loose him but we very much hope he can enjoy the outings with us. We also plan to get a folding trike with a tailor made seat for mother in the front so I can trike her around the camp sites or the near by places. The trike seems to be able to store under the rear fixed bed. But the trike people in Cambridge are very kind, he wanted us to take the M'van to their place and see what can they do. They obviously are not just interested in money. They do not want us to spend a lot of money and dispointed. So watch this space again , we shall let you know the development. Mary
