Cheers all - definitely echo Steve's comments on the organisation - but I did enjoy your seminar on the Sunday, Steve - nice to chat with you in person.

Got back on the rock at 5.15am this morning, so will be ready for my bed by this evening!

Unfortunately I missed that. I investigated a stand where the chap was selling and fitting side extension panels that gave a width of 6'4, brilliant...................stuck my head inside and 6'4" with zero insulation, well that's not much use then!!

After the AO show and lots of conversations with various people my wife and I have decided we are not going to get our >3.5 ton (unsure what its called) license and what our needs are I am doing a viewing tomorrow.

All my questions to the seller have been answered, also the 2.7 has a timing chain and has never been used commercially and only 1 previous owner.

You might know the seller Dave as he is on the 'Sprinter appreciation forum'

MOT history. Dave has some concerns over the 'gaiter' damage over the years and warns me that there could be some crud in the joints. Anyone else have any thoughts about its history.

I've have hi-jacked a post, apologies.

I will post the MOT history link in the vehicles section and leave this thread AO related

Good evening gents, we were at the show and had a chat and look around a very nice truck, self built by a gentleman that used to teach cad, sorry I forgot your name. We were talking cookers, amongst other things and can’t remember the make of yours, can anyone help please?

I think the person you are referring to would be Phil Seddon. Not sure what make his cooker is, so you could contact him.
