Can there be anything more exciting than picking up your new campervan! Well maybe, but probably not for the campervan geeks and dreamers in the world.

While we were there, we had a weekend camping with him to get to know him and so that Northstar could do any tweaks that were necessary.

Glyn and I are just back from the Isle of Wight where we ordered our new Toyota Alphard campervan from Northstar Conversions.
