Hi folks
We have just bought a 2013 symbol yesterday, I'm out today and my wife is going to try and shoehorn our stuff from our caravan into it, so I'll probably come back later open the side door and get hit by an avalanche of bits and bobs  hugegrins

Hi Alan. Welcome.

There’s nothing like a new van for focusing the mind on separating essentials from nice to haves.

Enjoy, then practice minimalism!
You can't cheat any more and fill the towcar as well as the caravan!!

Being more serious this is the prefect time to have it weighed so you DON'T overload it... up!

Welcome.
We are pretty lucky with the Symbol Ian as they have a very decent payload and being a compact van, only so many cupboards to stash those non essential items smile!

Hi and welcome to the forum. When we swapped from the Duetto to the current Rienza we emptied our belongings into the dining room. Considering the size of the Duetto we certainly had some things we had forgotten. They were tucked away in corners and not used.
Our naibors recently bought a Corinium. They started collecting bits they thought they needed before they picked it up. I was too polite to tell them they didn’t need half the stuff but it’s a big coach build and there’s only two of them. Oh and three mad Labradors.
