Got to get out more

We used the motorhome yesterday for a trip over to Newark railway station to collect our daughter Penny who had travelled up from Suffolk to spend a few days with us. The gear selector was sticking again, probably because we have not used her much for a while. Popped into see Jack our friendly mechanic who crawled under and whilst I wiggled the gear stick about he sprayed it with lubricant. Seemed a lot better afterwards. When it sticks its very hard to find 1st and 5th gear. Ist makes pulling away at junctions pretty scary as until you actually get going you have no idea whether you are in 1st or 3rd lol.

Going to be doing some more work soon on her. The front locker needs doing. Whislt in Newark I dropped into a well known motorhome dealer for some ideas. I quite liked this idea although I always had hte intention of fitting lockers in the front

Whilst there I also looked at a N&H Flair A class motorhome they had. It was sad to see the state it was in. No idea how old it was but it had damp, you could smell it. But in its hey-day it must have been superb with its classy fixtures and alde wet central heating system. I got another idea as well as to how to rebuild the front bed with sliding slats

Back home I sat there pondering where to buy bed slats from and of course the answer was obvious – Ebay lol. Ebay led me to a very interesting company called Kintech. Kintech make items for all the main caravan companies and will bespoke make an item for you. This caught my eye

I am going to do some measurements and will then ask them for a price although I still fancy constructing my own

Back to the motorhome dealer I also spotted this

which neatly opens out to

Looks excellent and would look superb in the rear of the van maybe.

So lots of ideas………
