Easter road trip movie

Postby hammondboy » 18 Apr 2013, 09:58

Howdy, not a regular poster but king of the lurkers. Thought you good folk might like a look at a vid we made of our family trip to Wales in our trusty Autosleeper Trident named Hugo.
It's quite long so have a cuppa to hand. We had a brilliant time and are now planning a summer trip. Any suggestions where to go? Thinking maybe West country but thinking it may be hidiously busy. Anyway.. enjoy. https://vimeo.com/64289412 :ok

Somewhere with good weather? You're so close to the ferries, it's got to be mid/southern France!
:ok
I've watched the video now. Nice, but how did you get Jules Holland to do your voice over?
:wink:

Fantastic! Ever thought about putting your daughters on the stage?
Really enjoyed that, but you were driving too fast at 16 min!

Nice demo of Autosleeper grill! - Many T25 owners will be green with envy!

Enjoyed the video - thanks

If you are looking for nice beaches, you could try this area (Lincolnshire). There is quite a lot to do for the youngsters and some relatively cheap campsites, compared to the West Country. Skegness gets busy in the summer, but there are superb spots up the coast, and other hidden gems inland. - well worth exploring.

Thanks for the kind words folks, glad you enjoyed. I was heavily influenced by Jed's videos over at Campervan Culture.com, love them.
a1winchester, just checked out your autosleeper on the garage page.. nice. Inspired me to clean the hob. Quick questiion, those holders that you have the two table legs in, did they come with the van or did you aquire them yourself, if so where from? I have to keep mine in a cupboard or under the back seat and it can be a pain getting them out.

The clips came with the van and appear to be original. The legs have to come off when the bed comes out, but the front table is usually up at night, so only have to stow one leg somewhere. I just asked Mr. Google and came up with http://www.leisureshopdirect.com/caravan/caravan_accessories/table_fittings/island_table_leg_system_-_stainless_steel.aspx That looks like the business! Scroll down to the second from bottom item. :ok £2.84 each shouldn't break the bank.
