Well First Trip Out

videoWe've just arrived on site on our first trip out with the Outlook. She travelled along at a very happy 65 mph and I've only used 1/4 tank of fuel from Cornwall to the site.

More Issues ! Will I Ever Get on the Road

Well, as you all know I purchased my Outlook Duo Plus for what I assumed was a good price. On the way home from collection the clutch went and this has cost me nearly £400 to have fixed. So with this all done I decide to have a night away in her just to see how things are...... Bad move.

During the night it rained really heavy and I woke in the morning to find a pool of water in the area where the cooker and sink are, after much searching I cant find where its coming from so I pack up and head back home via my friendly mechanic who looks after all my cars.

I drop the Outlook off with him and await his phone call, the call doesn't take long to come and goes something like this....

"Rich, its Stu here, ringing about your camper"
"Hi Stu whats the verdict ? "
"Well mate to put it bluntly you've bought a Lemon here, its had a back end shunt at some point and all the rear of the mono shell is cracked, some one has tried to repair it but they've made a rubbish job. I only noticed it when I looked at the rear bumper and inside the back door"
"Bloody hell, can you fix it?"
"Yes I can but its a lot of work and its going to cost around £1500 quid at a guess"
"S@*t....."
"What do you want me to do Rich, I can start on it today or wait until I hear from you"
"You better start on it, send me some pictures and I will send them to the dealer that sold it to me"
"Ok Rich will do, Ill get them photos to you once I've stripped it down"
"Thanks Stu"

So I wait an a few hours later I get the photos and I can see why I have a leak ! There is a massive crack around the door frame which goes all around the back of the motorhome and along the side, the roof has a crack in it which has been sealed with Black Tape !

New Motorhome Update

Time for some work on the old girl .............


Well when I purchased the Outlook I didn't expect a new one but I didn't expect to have to have a new clutch and the seal rebuilt !

After a few months another Motorhome

Its been a while since I have posted and this is due to me returning my R40 to the dealer due to countless issues with it.

With a need to get back out there I have purchased an early Romahome Outlook Duo Plus. Keep an eye out for updates and upgrades over the coming months.
