We picked up our new motorhome yesterday, Saturday 7th March.
The day wasn't without its hitches! After getting up at 6am ready to hit the road an hour later up to Somerset (or so we had planned) Daisy, our Dakota, decided NOT to start! After attempting a jump start from Mike's truck (unsuccessful) we plugged her into the power and waited for her to charge! Finally at 7:15am she fired up! Luckily the local roads and M5 were quiet and we made good time up to our dealer.
The handover was smooth and friendly (we even had bacon sarnies and coffee on our arrival - now that's what I call service!) and we were back home with BESSY by 1pm.
Mike spent the rest of the day polishing her with 'showroom shine', to give her paint a bit of protection from the sea air down here and the birds in the garden!!!
We're really pleased with her so far and now the hard work starts to fill her up with all the things we need (or don't as the case maybe?!) ready for our maiden trip on 29th March when we head back to Somerset for 8 nights.
