Hungerford Beddy Owner !

Hi All,

wont bore you with long introductions.

Just taken the decision to buy an El-vee CF3 , after much deliberating with wife, daughters x 2 , haggling over price, and getting final seal of approval from our Collie/LabX.

We are from Hungerford, and are seeking to restore our "little" camper to something like its former glory. Its going to take time and patience, but we are happy with our purchase, and she will be ready to go out to work, just as soon as she has had a good wash and brush up !

Nothing too major to do just yet, obviously we have to get to know her better, and make her feel part of a loving warm family before we start to inflcit any lasting changes to her appearance.

Looking forward to getting to know a few people from here, and im sure work permitting that we will try and get to a few meets through the year !

All i can ask is a little patience as we are extreme novices in the world of "Motor-Homing" so if you do get stuck behind a pesky slow van on a steep hill, and it says "El-Vee" on the back, please dont swear !;D

I see...But you know what we say in building trade: with 3600 people you can do in 1 second a 1 hour task.
I'm not sure about my English syntax ...:B

ok well after a minor operation my new, old girl has been declared fully fit and will be leaving hospital tomorrow !

We will get the bunting up in the morning ready for her homecoming celebration !

"Welcome home Old Girl"

On the way to collect her we are going to a boot sale to look for lots of lovely bargains to make her a home from home !
