Eventually bought one

Hi all I joined here a few years ago and made my 5 free posts. At that time I thought I was about to buy a motorhome but it didn't happen. However I have now just purchased a Burstner Lyseo 728G, currently waiting for it to be registered, should have it in 3 weeks. Just in time for the schools closing and a few adventures over the summer.
I have been lurking quite a bit in the background and have been reading quite a few of the posts. Eventually decided to go with the Burstner as it has a lot more useable payload than anything else that was available to me here. Looking forward to contributing and learning a lot more.

Congratulations and looking forward to hearing how happy and adventurous you can be.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Great news Lawrence, an exciting time and good choice too. Plenty of time to plan a few outings.
Have you room to keep it at home? If so a few nights there getting used to the equipment is a good idea to shake out any issues as it can be a steep learning curve.

Ooh, I'm just sucking my teeth at those wasted few years!!

I hope you get the chance to make up for it soon. Welcome to the forum. Terry's advice is good - then you don't have far to go to get what you've left in the house! Let's you figure out the gas and electric systems without anything being critical.

Having said that, my 1st trip was in a hired motorhome taking the ferry to Wales. If it could go wrong, it went wrong that fortnight, including a spray leak under the seat. But it didn't put us off; we loved that trip and every one since.

Thank you all. I have been having a problem with my account. I paid the lifetime membership and have only been able to make one post since on that account. I have only created this account to try and get it sorted.

I can eventually reply. It will definitely fit on my driveway if I can make the turn to get it in. However it will not be stored there long term although it would definitely be handy to be able to bring the van home the night before we travel anywhere.I will find out when I get it. I am currently trying to figure what bits and bobs I need to get without going overboard. We are planning a few day trips to begin with to get used to it and then I have 3 nights booked at a site in Donegal mid July. Really looking forward to it, been a dream of mine for years but has taken a long time to convince my wife.

Good that your login issue has hopefully been resolved. We had a static van Castle Archdale for about 15 years with the target to get mobile once retirement hit and we shook off the kids/grandkids. We usually hit France and Spain for 4-5 summer months as we love the heat and beaches.
Target is to hopefully resume next year as long as the pandemic settles.
Luckily I’ve room to store and keep everything charged at the side of the house, take care as the bits and bobs soon add up and can compromise your allowable payload.
