Following on from our conversation with Rachel & Emma at Erwin Hymer UK – we needed to get all systems in place to collect the MoHo from Cleveland Motorhomes in Darlington. We organised car hire – a lovely Jaguar F-Pace R-Sport from Enterprise Car Hire. We booked a hotel – The Chequers at Dalton-on-Tees.
We organised our our belongings into boxes ready to be taken, and tried to pack the car…… It wouldn’t all fit! We knew we would have to leave some stuff to be picked up later but the amount left behind was enormous – will it ever fit? We hoped we’ve packed all we need for a week or so.
Wednesday 19th June – MoHo Day! We woke – I took the dog for a walk ( in horrendous rain) and was completely drenched from head down by a speeding car through a puddle – I have an orange waterproof coat so there was no way it was accidental – was this an omen? We had a lovely breakfast in the Chequers and went for a drive to Hartlepool – the plan was to let the dog run on the beach, but the weather had other ideas – Albi has always been a fair weather dog and the thought of a sandy dog in a hire car was too much to consider. As time went on the clouds lifted, there was blue sky (enough to make a sailor a pair of trousers!!) a good omen, then there was sun.
We arrived at Cleveland Motorhomes, still feeling a little apprehensive – was this a reality or dream (was it the classic dream sequence from Dallas – where Bobby comes out of the shower)? Then we saw the friendly faces of Rachel and Emma, it was real! We were introduced to our lovely new home – An Etrusco T7400QBC.
We were shown around the Motorhome and shown all the features we would need to know. We’ll update you with a MoHo overview on another post. Then we were given the keys and the adventure begins….
