Hi all.
The family is made up of me, the wife, our young lad, retired greyhound and Eos. Eos is a 2010 Danbury T2 bought from new. Since having her in September 2010, we have been out and about everywhere from Great Yarmouth, New Forest, Retford, Edinburgh, Glenmore and this weekend we are off to the Royal Regatta in Dartmouth.

I have started to find little niggles now with Eos and will have to keep on top of them as and when problems start. Still have three months of my years guarantee with Danbury and hope they continue giving me good service as they did on her first 6 month service.

By the way, Eos name was given to her when she was registered by Danbury. Eos is the name of the beautiful Greek Titan Goddess of the Dawn, which fits with her white and cream colours.

I hope to look to get great ideas from the forum and next time tell you about some recent product purchases, to make our nights better in Eos.

regards Very Happy

I was wondering if we were about to have our first convertible Kombi join up with a name like that. Maybe your poptop is electrically operated?!

Hi Eos2010, Welcome to the forum! Do you take your greyhound with you in Eos? Interested to know how you get on room-wise as I had 3 greyhounds until a couple of years ago, am thinking of offering another a home (prob only 1 this time!) but have Tilly to consider now!


We've never really had any problems taking our two staffs around with us. It depends if you would let them on the bed though.

We have one that sleeps up top and literally becomes a pillow (or squeezes in between our heads Laughing) and the other one that sleeps in the middle by your feet. It's all about being huddled for warmth Very Happy

I think it would be pretty impossible if we didn't have an awning for in the day though.

Hi All.

Due to Eos being a diamond conversion, with the buddy seat stored in our pup tent or trailer this allows our greyhound to sleep generally upside down dreaming (with farting involved), on the floor between the bed and front seats.

This was one of the reasons why the family bought Eos. We initially investigated by hiring a van from Snail trail, a 57 plate called Ruby with a diamond layout. (Ruby was the van used in Dr Who, which our lad loves to watch). When we looked into older Bays, we found most had layouts with the 3/4 bed and front mounted units which felt cramped.

Tried sending pics but was told I could not for 7 days as a new member ?????

Happy camper afro

Welcome to the forum!

We have two Cavaliers which equates to one Greyhound body they sleep in the passenger footwell and between the front seats unless we need some warmth in which case they sleep up beside us. Can't imagine squeezing two adults and a greyhound in the bed. Laughing

Sounds an interesting colour combination, looking forward to the pics.
