Hello...

Post by HertsPhil on Sat Sep 10, 2016 6:36 pm

Hi there to you all.
Recently purchased an older 1997 Executive Monocoque based on the Peugeot Boxer chassis with 2.5 TD in very god order and only 46k on the clock. This after 30 years of caravanning.
I have a mild right armed disability which means I cannot safely drive the vehicle as the right hand handbrake is out for me. My wife Janet is therefore the driver. So far so good and very pleased with the build quality. There will no doubt be some questions from us in due course, but I am hopeful that joining the forum will help us tease the best out of our new acquisition. We are in Hitchin North Herts.

welcome Phil & jan The Executive is currently one of my favourite motorhomes. great layout and exceptional finish .Looking forward to seeing some pics
Sorry to hear about you being unable to drive it though ...

Have you considered having your handbrake  converted to a pull out type handbrake fitted under the dash ? Like the Citroen 2CV winks
