A Weekend away in the Camper Van
After succsessfuly passing the dreaded MOT we took the Camper out for it's first proper run this weekend. We had been invited to Claire's Aunts house for a weekend catchup with the family, so we decided to take the van and give it a shakedown test.
The journey to Market Drayton only took 20 minutes more than usual, and the van behaved well. I am a little concerned with the thermostat, but that shouldn't be too hard to sort out.
The only issue we had was the Hammock collapsing with the boys in it at 2.30 this morning! I think it was only designed for one child. A quick scan of the internet and a camping bed has been ordered, which will fit down the middle of the van nicely.
We had a great time catching up with Claire's Aunts cousins and their kids. Highlight of the weekend for me was having some lumberjack fun with the chainsaw!!
The trip home was also uneventful, and we are now looking further afield for our next trip.
