Restoration Complete, let the fun begin!

We've just got back from our first outing in Silver Lady, our Airstream 240 Excella Motorhome, a 420 mile round to trip to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in the UK.

A big thank you goes out to Graham Taylor of GT Designs for going beyond the call of duty to sort out our LPG tank and fuel filling fault. Also a thank you to Owen Thomas of Bespoke Stoves for creating our awesome wood burning stove. And last but not least a huge thank you to our wonderful friends and family for an unforgettable weekend! We still have the loss of power fault on gradients but she is in the garage as we speak having that looked into.Click image for larger version

So many cool features you have done in your amazing classic, the polished skins in the bedroom make quite visual impression, love the wood stove, and is that a table top jukebox hanging by the door, does it work?

Sounds like your first trip was very rewarding. Congrats

Cheers Richard

Jukebox works, high tech though, Bluetooth, SD Card and USB!
