ex-Caravanner new to the forum

Hi all, 

Just a very quick hello to the Auto-Sleeper community from me and the wife. We live between Leeds and York. Any motorcyclists amongst you will know sherburn in Elmet.

Having just rejected our 1 year-old Elddis built Buccaneer caravan, we have decided to take the plunge and buy ourselves into the AS club.

Tomorrow we go hunting for our circa 2012/2013 Auto'Sleepers MH. Our main consideration is single beds or bench seats long enough to sleep on. My wife has seen the Cotswold EB as it has a layout very similar to out last but one caravan, which she loved.  I have to say that it does seem to fit the bill but I was a little discouraged as to why a MH that won several awards when it was released, ended production so quickly and people only seem to whisper its name!  smile!

We are very experienced caravanners but the dark arts of motorhoming seem a bit daunting at the moment, but we will get there. I will let you know how our hunt goes. Good to be here.

Hello and asof_welcome2 from Leicestershire, you will wonder why you waited so long, from another ex caravanner.

Hi Wallace and welcome to this most friendly and informative forum. We have the Broadway FB which is the successor to the Cotswold. The Broadway came in at 3500kg MTPLM set against the Cotswold of ?? 4250kg which obviously had a larger user payload. I understand the Cotswold has diesel heating that was a concern to a member of this forum at the time. The Broadway has the under slung 20 litre capacity LPG tank for heating off grid. Just a very brief comparison. Regards.
