New member reporting in.

Post by Ambulancekidd on Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:31 am

Hi folks, I'm a new member who's recently bought a year 2000 Executive & I'm loving it. I'm not new to motorhomes, my father built motorhomes when I was a nipper in the early 60s. I'm a retired Paramedic & looking forward to touring the UK in our Auto-Sleeper. Only thing I'm struggling with is the sort of agricultural driving experience of the Peugeot Boxer. Its a bit like straying back to the dark ages compared to the Sprinter that I still own.
I'd describe it as characterful rather than unpleasant.
Anyway I'm hoping to contribute knowledge & in particular extract knowledge from other forum members. up!

Welcome to the forum from Warrington

Can understand your comments on the Boxer.  We used to have a 2.5td year 2000 Executive and whilst you trust it to take you anywhere you had to use the gearbox a lot for climbing. 
What a difference when we changed it to the Windsor 2.4td Ford bigger van but boy, foot on the accelerator and it was off, just like a car.
