Now we have the freedom we took the opportunity today to visit the NEC mid week accompanied by good friend Phil, who kindly provided the transport.
The show was over a large number of Halls and there was certainly a very good range of motorhomes and marques. Now if we’d won the lottery last night we could certainly have found something to our taste, strangely it wouldn’t have been easy. Leaving aside the technical difficulty of many of the motorhomes were too heavy for me to legally drive, too long for me store etc the main difficulty was the layout.
Everyone has different tastes and requirements but the recent trend for end bedrooms does seem to have introduced certain strange arrangements, in some you have to walk through the bathroom to get to the bedroom and in others the opposite, through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. Kitchens seem to be shrinking, cookers and sinks minuscule and work surface non existent, not good news for those of us who wish to spend long periods away. Ah well as we didn’t win the lottery we will stay with our old favourite Homer the Hymer.
Whilst there we joined the Caravan and Motorhome Club so we can extend the range of sites and facilities we can use.
