Yesterday the dealer called me.
The factory has finally delivered my new campervan. Now it just needs to be registered.

Cause Covid, like all public offices here, the equivalent of DVLA is also working with reduced staff.
Hopefully it won't take long.

I partially agree but...
...price lists should be read in detail. Too many variables involved.

The basic version has everything you need.
Then one can add accessories for ten thousands pounds and even more.
In my case chassis + main cabin packages (3,600 pounds).
Then I replaced the Combi gas heater with the diesel/electric one, added a second leisure battery (gel), a third bed, 16 inches wheels, removable double floor storage and some others that I don't remember.

Applied discount brought the whole at 54,000 euros = roughly 48.000 GBP including fair gifts: awning, Pioneer media center with satnav and reversing camera.

Not bad for a vehicle that, thanks to the parent company Carthago, devaluates less than others, maintaining a good value on the used market.
This at least in Italy. LLLOOOLLL.

Max

p.s. I forgot to tell that I received a more than fair money for my old motor home.

If you had the new MH parked outside today are you actually able to use it yet? Also, are you able to travel to your second house yet?

From May 18 until June 2 we can move everywhere in the region in which we live.

The second step of phase two is going well and for now there are no signs of a worsening of the infections.
So almost certainly from the 3rd of June we will move on to the third step.

Thus we should be able to move everywhere in the country.
Same day, Italy will open borders to everyone without quarantine (right now only freight traffic allowed).

Very likely I will spend the weekend in my house above the lake.

Max

p.s. June 3 because overhere the weekend is a sort of long bank holiday and the governement wants to avoid a mass going to the sea.

Have a lovely time at your house when you get the opportunity to go there. It will make a nice change of scenery for you.

Nice one, I like those, is that the one with toilet that slides away to create a bigger shower area.
How well will that last up to regular use?

Lovely van though, congratulations.

I'll tell you, I follow a couple of forums with the subject of Malibu.
One Italian and one French.

So far no one has ever complained about the failure of the sliding toilet.
Keep in mind that the whole block (bowl plus cassette) moves.
