living.at.a.small.holding.in.deepest.rural.wales.near.Bala...I.have.been.sat.at.the.computer.screen.
for.hours.every.day,checking,ebay,autotrader,gumtree.and.preloved.We.visited.about.6.trucks.and.
bid.on.two.in.fact.i.had.almost.chucked.the.towel.in.when.out.of.nowhere.our.truck.appeared.on.
ebay,a.quick.email.was.sent,and,within,30mins.we.were.heading.for.Ruthin.
This.search.has.revealed.one.or.two.thinks.to.look.out.for.......
1,The.camera.does.lie......After.looking.at.photos.of.pristine,gleaming.metal.on.adverts.only.to.be.
confronted.with.battered,scratched,rusting.heaps.of.rubbish.when.viewed.Never.trust.a.photo!
2,Unless.your.buying.new.or.you.have.a.banger.dont.even.think.about.part.ex.They.offer.you.peanuts.for.yours.and.sell.you.theirs.at.top.price.
3,Dont.jump.at.the.first.one.you.see..Theres.thousands.of.them.for.sale.but.only.a.small.percentage.
are.worth.having.Keep.looking.be.patient.and.the.right.one.will.come.along.

We.are,now.all.rigged.up.for.Cornwall.in.august...I.just.hope.we.get.some.of.this.fantastic.sunshine.

Congratulations on finding your pick up, I'm not telling the hubby because he wants one Rolling Eyes I had a sticky keyboard too the other week but it was under a warranty thank god, saying that it was probably due to my little princess eating a melting ice lolly while watching minnie on youtube What a Face When my kids were little the video wouldn't work (in the days they were expensive) so we got the repair man out who found a bit of pie crust, a toy car and some jam butty had been posted through the front. lol!

My son has just bought a Peugeot Partner (Berlingo) & loves it. It was the only one near where they live in Cornwall. Drive it to cornwall and you may get lots of offers as they are very popular with the surfers etc.
