Default Our new rally living quarters

Gentlemen,

Last year at Dorset Exgreeney and myself decided that our six berth trailer tent had to go, it was becoming hard work erecting it, so in October we sold it and in November we bought a Rapido folding caravan, in size its a similar width and slightly longer.
Today we opened it up outside Exgreeney's house to see how it went together, it took approx 45 mins from start to finish, less than half the time it took to get the tent erected and all the interior in place. Icovered its assembly with a few pictures.
It sleeps five, two double beds and a hammock, has a small kitchen and an area for a cloakroom cum toilet plus we have two awnings to fit either side of the body though one will be enough.

By the way Exgreeney suffered some serious senior moments but a sit down and cup of tea usually pulled him around.

What an interesting and useful bit of kit.
Obviously quite important that you don't go for an early start one morning without folding it up properly.

Hope you enjoy using it

Len.
