Woohoo, we are now the proud owners of a motorhome! Let’s start with some pics!
They spent over an hour going over the vehicle with me, pointing out features to look out for and explaining how everything works – the awning, gas hot water heater, batteries, the tables and how to remove or reposition, beds, toilet, shower, etc etc.
There were a few things they were meant to fix up, of which they did some – thankfully including the mechanical service (yep oil looks clean now and filters are new!). They missed/ignored two things – the entry door seal and a loose window, so they’ve agreed for me to take it back to the factory for a day to have those fixed. I’m being fairly fussy, but they are the ones who offered to fix these when I mentioned them, despite already having signed a purchase contract!
Now it’s time to think about some modifications – you can’t go buying a motorhome and not customise it! 🙂 We won’t want to be staying at caravan parks all the time (or much at all hopefully!), so we’ll need to make additions to improve our remote staying capability. Add an inverter for example. For power, should we go solar panels and more batteries, or buy a generator?
First things first though; we need to fill ‘er up and go on a test trip!!!
