AL Social Event...

Last Saturday Automotive Leisure had their annual social event....

We have been to this event every year since we have had our Eriba.
It is always good to meet up with other owners and exchange ideas and knowledge about these quirky caravans....
It is also good to see the latest models and layouts although I have to say that we thought long and hard about which layout to go for before we bought our caravan and have not found one yet that would improve on our choice.

As well as Eribas and food and drink there was also music to lull us all into a spending state of mind....
Well it worked because I actually spent some more money (bearing in mind that I had purchased a new awning just 4 days earlier).

No I didn't buy a new caravan but I did buy an Isabella Shadow Touring Sun Canopy for those short stays when we don't want to put up our awning....
I am planning to use it when we leave this location and move on to the next campsite because three days after moving from here the caravan is booked in back at Automotive Leisure for it's annual service... 

I will post a picture of the canopy during that first use... In the meantime you will have to make do with some images taken at the social event.....

AL were very helpful when we went there to look at the possibility of buying an Eriba. We very nearly bought one, but in the end I'm more than pleased with what we have at the moment. Off to Switzerland in May so just sorting that out.

Yes we have always found them very helpful.... Switzerland sounds good I haven't been there since I did the Ten Countries in Ten Days ride although I am planning on cycling there next year to complete the Abdula pass among others.....
