Our Dakota Is Here

On Saturday 21st May we left Cornwall with our 'old' Cheyenne and headed up to West Country Motorhomes in Brent Knoll, Somerset to collect our brand new Dakota, which we'd had on order since early February. 

The pick up went very well and 'Daisy' is now home with us.

So far, without a full proper testing (!), we are really pleased with her.  We are still finding secret hideaway cupboards and switches galore!  The end bathroom is massive, much later than we remember when we saw it at the NEC show!  The gadgets and gizmo's are going to be testing, trying to work out how to use them all!

As yet, we've not had a trip away in her. We cancelled our Whitsun weekend away (far too many kids on campsites for us). We have now booked two weekends in a row in June, first one onto Dartmoor staying on the Lydford CC affiliated site and the second one staying in Stoke Gabriel, South Devon on the Ramslade CC site, both sites that we have visited before and enjoyed.  Here's hoping that summer returns in time for our short trips!

Here are a few photos of the new girl.
