new T5 Trooper from Nottinghamshire

Post by leupold721 on Sun Dec 07, 2014 1:52 am

Hello

We are Lesley & Michael, in tow are socks & bracken (dogs) Elle ( sons parrot) Harry (daughter's horse) Bobby our tortoise, son in New Zealand daughter in Germany.

We have had "Harriet" a 2006 1.9 tdi 104ps VW T5 Autosleeper Trooper for 3 months now, traded in our VW Golf, we tow a 2 birth hymer for longer holidays, we have used Harriet twice for weekends away, what a fantastic change just to get off without having to get the caravan out of storage pack unpack put back into storage!!!! We have a drive away awning a fiamma canopy, toilet tent and a Consett trailer just to cover all eventualities (a wife thing) we have extended the bed upstairs, fitted tv, stair ladders, carbon trim (exterior) side steps, Harriet is gold with beige trim.
We both ride scooters so we purchased a motorbike trailer to put my Vespa on for future outings next year.

Look forward to reading some of the forums posts.

Bye for now

Hi there

Welcome from what was a bright but chilly day in Skegness. shiver  sun  shiver

We are now too old for two wheels so on long trips away we tow this ....



.... and a couple of pushbikes as well.

Best regards,

Seriously!

I'd like to see a pic of it hooked up if you have one, it looks really smart.

Hi there,

We stick it on this 8' x 5' Paxton trailer (which doubles as a temporary store when we are on site) ...



.... mainly on a bit of land we have in France ....



.... and provides a really good place to stow the boxes and bottles of wine that we bring back with us! allthumbz allthumbz

Welcome from N.E Wales   handshake   We also used to caravan and the getting out of storage etc etc was a deciding factor for us as well.
Are you talking classic Vespa or modern? I had Vespa and Lambretta when I were a lad.
