True he talks to Barry , literally he likes to talk
He loves every one once introduced
Just hates every one that approaches the van, or the house as strangers when he's in it
And travelling that's a painSandra

Thanks Cabby,

Unless yours is costing you to keep, don't be in too much of a hurry to sell it. You never know what's round the corner and I've watched my parents chop and change too many times over the years, without giving things as much thought as they could have. The dealerships must love them !!

I hope all works out for you,

Ken.

Superb. The very best of health to enjoy it. Nothing like picking up a new moho. Fantastic feeling.

Ken.. Whilst I am here I will hijack your thread to raise awareness on prostate cancer. My wish is that ALL of you make a date with your doc and GET CHECKED... Simple 5 min test and blood test could save your life or at least a lot of hassle and pain... Please please do it guys. PC is NOT nice.

If you don't like this here Ken just let me know and I will delete...

Thank you and hijack away Alex, but I think this thread may have run its course. You may get a wider audience with a new one ?

Thank you, I first had a look at the Kingham when my Bolero went last year and loved the layout. I've looked at many other vans and layouts since, but nothing came close !

I know this thread is about a particular PVC model but it may be followed by otheres with or contemplating PVCs so may I just please ask one question?

Were I ever to downsize to a PVC I would worry about disturbing others, both other MHomers and even any nearby householders by the noise that is made shutting the sliding door. The noise certainly disturbs me if I am parked nearby. I know some models do have electric latches which do not require the door to be moved so fast, but even the sliding does make some noise compared with a normal hab door. Dot PVC owners worry about this aspect and do other MH owners find the noise a problem?

In addition to Geoff's question I've often wondered about camping in a PVC. I could be tempted by one but can't work out how to keep the warmth indoors during freezing weather as the sliding door appears quite large. How will you keep it cosy, or do you plan store the van over winter?
