Or. Oh! Sh*t.
The boss says we retiring to Malta.

After several years trying to convince 'er indoors to retire to Spain ( I would be going with her as well). I finally gave and started looking at other interests. Elgrands being one.
After only a few days on holiday in Malta, she said, "This will do nicely". I think, Gob smacked, is the term best described my reaction.
Yes they drive on the left, and we may only be there for 4 or 5 months over the winter, but I'm not sure if I could afford to do the Malta thing, and buy and run a 'grand.
So, I'll be taking some time to do me sums.
Meanwhile, I'd like to take the opportunity to say thanks for a great read, and wish you all well in the future.

Hasta la vista baby.

Reports of our move to Malta, grossly exaggerated. Dodged that one. I have unfortunately joined the dark side. I have a Fiat ( wash yer mouth out) van conversion. An '07 Adria Twin. I'm chuffed to rocks with it TBH. It will never win any beauty pageants, but I can stand up to put me kecks on.

I do want to replace the radio. ATM it has a single DIN CD/ Radio. I want to replace it with a FM/DAB, Sat Nav thingie ( Tech talk, impressed ?)
I can remember some members fitted a Pumpkin unit. Any thoughts on this product would be helpful, or even a similar alternative.

Before I get me coat, I'd like to wish everyone on here, All the very best for the future, and thanks for many hours of entertainment on the forum. Yes I know, I am easily pleased. So if your ever "flashedup" ( Ooh, Matron) by a white van man, you never know, it might be me. Now I know, that WOULD make you day.

I'll put something on the ICE section,
Cheers all, Derek

IMHO Adria are one of the best euro converters. Son lives in one of their caravans in our garden It’s 9 years old and had been 100% reliable and waterproof, save the heating system fan (not surprisingly as it’s on 24x7 5 months a year.
