We've Gone And Done It!


Recommended Posts

After much reading on this forum, and many visits to dealers to look we have today bought our first caravan. Some what earlier than expected but hopefully not in haste.


The plan was to use our narrow boat for this year's summer holiday and then put it on the market. Having started to look for a 'van we very soon decided that a 5 berth layout would be the most suited to our needs and as we 1st saw this layout in an Ace Jubillee Viceroy, we used this model as a base for comparison. We also considered a Bailey, on price grounds but having seen one "in the flesh" yesterday dicounted ths option.


Today's window shopping trip was to Glossop Caravans and we started by looking at the used selection. In minutes we found a 2005 Ace Award Nightstar that looked un-used. We carried on and walked the whole site including taking another look at the Jubille Viceroy.


In the end the more modern vurved interior lines and the separate shower cubilce of the used Nightstar won the mental debate and then it was time to talk about a deal. This was done after a lot of thought about financing the purchase beofre we sell the boat but we finally took the plunge.


We'l be collecting the caravan in the 1st week in May.


Thanks to everyone in this group who have helped us through their postings
