Hello, I'm a soon to be happy owner of a brand new Danbury Classic, arriving (hopefully) 21st January '14. Dark blue, as yet unnamed. Jumping the gun by joining the forum, but have been collecting information on everything VW since ordering my camper in September. This looks like a great place to be.
A short history - About 9 years ago I owned a 1977 westfalia, green and cream, all original interior upholstery and fittings, it came with German number plates and paperwork, a beautiful van called Hilda. We (my patient husband and I) drove it around Cornwall and Wales, and an unforgettable journey to the south of France sampling the vineyards and campsites. I caught the vw bug, but had to sell my van when we moved to Devon to look after my mum. There was little time to get away, and I couldn't afford to keep Hilda rusting in the garage. She went to a lovely lady and her dog.
I've been pining ever since.
My dear mum was settled into a care home earlier in the year, so ignoring all advice to the contrary Ive managed to scrape the money together, (sold my soul), to buy a shiny new camper. It's a present to myself for being a good (ish) person.

Welcome Kaz. Sounds like putting a BraziBay in your life is exactly the right thing. Smile

Welcome Kaz, look forward to meeting you at an event.

Urmysunshine - great to see you yesterday and to meet the new member of your family! Not a lot going on in the low season I'm afraid - apart from the Krismas Kurry in a few weeks - but not long til Spring and a whole new season of adventures!

Timv - Urmysunshine needs upgrading to club!!

Welcome Kaz and URmysunshine. cheers 

We've only had Margot for just over a year and can't believe how much more enriched our lives are. We've enjoyed many days out, weekends away sometimes not even knowing where to go until packed, longer road trips and I even like to park up locally with our dog, a good book and a brew. She puts a smile on our face!

Hi Tracey, thanks for the warm welcome! I/we are very excited about our new camper, January seems a long way off at the moment.bounce We spend our waiting time planning where to go, so this forum is perfect for tips and reviews. We might take off to cornwall initially, not too far from us and a good way to get used to the new van. We also have a dog, border collie called Bryn, so looking forward to taking her with us on our adventures. We might even let our grown up kids come too, sometimes!

Hi and welcome Kaz, we love Cornwall and go back at least once every year.

We found this website useful for knowing where dogs are allowed on the beach, but there are other ones as well.

If you get a chance try out Porth Kidney beach. We took our dog there in the middle of last summer and it is outstanding. When the tide's out there is mile upon mile of sandy beach. Perfect for a great dog walk.

Thanks everyone. The cornwall dog link is ideal, so I know Bryn will be very grateful. We usually visit the north coast around Port Isaac, and we recently spent a few days near Polzeath. Rock has changed beyond recognition over the last 30 years, and seems to be a magnet for those with shed loads of money.
Skytiger, I notice you are from Scotland, another place we intend to explore particularly the western isles, Shetland and the Edinburgh festival! Not all at once though.

Many thanks for those excellent links, I'm just about managing to pass the time...anyone here know of a word which describes a group of campervans? For example, a busload, gaggle, or a harmony of campers? Question

I think a group of Campervan owners is known as a Permagrin!
