Apologize for the delay in writing to you – Toby is fourteen months old now and is keeping both of us very busy indeed. However, you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve not been too busy to get out on the road and really enjoy our amazing campervan (that we have named Dixie).
So far we have had a two week holiday in her and some impromptu weekends away. In the two week holiday we clocked up over 1100 miles as we drove round England taking in the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the Forest of Dean, Bristol and Exmoor. Throughout all our trips we’ve experienced glorious sunshine, blowing gales and rain storms of biblical proportions, and our Dixie took it all in her stride and took very good care of us every step of the way. The diesel heater came in very useful when we were all soaked to the bone, and even the dog was dried off in no time. We took Dixie to Cheddar Gorge in October, and even when frost and ice were forming on the outside, we were toastie warm on the inside. The air-con was vital when the sun did come out, the bed is incredibly comfortable, and the generous storage space meant we had plenty of room for all the things a young family needs. And we really like the little swivel table behind the passenger seat.
The luxury and comfort that Dixie gives us has made our weekends away in her feel like proper holidays, and has taken our camping trips to a whole new level. Dixie attracts attention everywhere we go, and we receive complements on her at every campsite we visit. I can honestly say there is not one thing that we would change about our stunning campervan. From the moment you step into the van you can feel the quality of the conversion and the amount of skill and attention to detail that has gone into her design and construction.
We are still trying to sell our estate car, but we have been using the Explor.er as our main family car for a few months now. She is as capable and comfortable when doing the weekly shop as she is when enjoying a cider and cooking dinner by a Cornish beach. She is not just a car or a campervan, she is a part of our family and we love her.
Thank you Christien for all your hard work and support.
