Interesting week-end.

Friday evening our fellow Kiwi friends John and Elizabeth from Nb Helen Louise arrived for the week–end. The plan was a trip to Cranham Motorhomes on Saturday for us to obtain some measurements from our Autotrail Arapaho and for John and Elizabeth to have a good look at our baby without any sales pressure. They are in a similar predicament to us and are thinking about shipping a motorhome back to New Zealand when their time comes to return home.

It took us 1 hour 40 minutes  via the M11 to reach Cranhams where we wasted no time in locating our motorhome. Several hours were spent investigating every little nook and cranny before Paul, Cranham’s Sales Manager came and had a chat with us sorting out a final delivery date (March 5th) and an informative chat with John and Elizabeth over their proposed plans for the future. Paul did mention that there were 3 other new motorhomes sitting in the yard, 2 destined for Australia and the other for New Zealand.

We had taken a picnic lunch with us so after leaving Cranham’s we hunted out a local sports field with a car park where we stopped for lunch and further discussions over possibilities for John and Elizabeth. Back at the Apartment it was decided to finish off the day with dinner out at the Griffin hotel.
