Hi Kev

We got this from a Webasto locator website:

Hmm, didn't know they did Webasto, good news for you though, I know Richard Peel and his staff and also John Cubitt who owns the whole show, it is where I go for all my repairs, you will be in good hands, I dare say it will be Terry who will do the job on yours, slow but steady, and really knows his stuff.

Thanks Kev, that's really good to know.

Looking at your post re handover and after, I hope it hasn't put you off the MH?

No, we're trying really hard to be positive because (as long as it works OK) we think it's the right van for us at this stage of our motorhoming. We won't really know though how well it works for us until we can go away in it. When we slept at Clumber Park we used our thick mattress topper from the fixed bed in the Knaus. It was comfortable but is too bulky for normal use as we'd need to pack it up and get it out each day. If we'd been going away in the van this weekend we'd have tried the two duvets method - one underneath and one on top. If that's not right well have to think again, perhaps two single thinner toppers/duvalay thingies. The boiler problem just delays things. It would have been good to be out there enjoying it while we're still in early Autumn.

We collected the van this week and the problem has been resolved. It was, as Murvi had suggested, a detached pipe from the boiler to the outside, so fortunately fixing it didn't cost a fortune.

Now looking forward to a couple of nights in York to give it a proper test trip.

Thanks for still being there.
