Hi All, I have been having holidays in caravans since I was around 7 years old. These have solely been on the island of Ireland, as far away as Cork and Kerry, but our regular spots back then were Donegal and Castle Archdale, Co. Fermanagh. When I left home my dad kindly still took the caravan to different spots (of my choice) and left it for my wee family to use, picking it up again afterwards. Legend! Often the caravan was already in Benone, County Londonderry so rather than put the old man out, we just went there. Recently, the opportunity came up for me to get a little 2 berth caravan, so I went for it, thinking that while it was small, it would be a good start for my own little van. So I am now the proud owner of a 1991 Abbey Lincoln GT. As there are 4 of us, including my 9 and 5 year old, we are planning to sleep two in the generously large bed, and two in a two man tent, inside the awning. I figured my 1. 2 Ibiza and my 1. 4 207 would both be spectacularly bad (and illegal) towcars, so I bought a big old VW Bora 1. 9tdi with an all important towbar. It's well inside the recommended 85% match so I'm happy. Anyway so far I've given everything a good clean, replaced all the waste pipes and the water filter, sanded and painted the wheels and hubs, and tested everything in the van. All good. Decor is suffering with a lot of cupboard doors etc peeling, so we are planning a bit of an interior overhaul. Anyways I'll be lurking around. Hi everyone!
