After 45 years of caravaning we have purchased our first New van. Looking forward to collection on the 18th Nov. A bit apprehensive as it has a bit more tech than our old one , will use the Mobile to take some vids , will let you no how it goes

I’ve just looked online and they look like a stunning caravan. We bought our first caravan last year, a 2005 Buccaneer and are very impressed for a 15 year old caravan. If yours is as well built I’m sure you’ll be very happy with it. Hope you enjoy it
Cheers, Luke

Handover went well and the part x price was honoured, so hopefully this will be our last big purchase

Mike..excellent choice...we have had 2 buccaneers over the last 45 years ...both were the best vans to tow...my son is still using the buccaneer caravel which is now 35 years old and in good condition.
We have been looking at the same caravan you have purchased and would be really interested when you get the opportunity to tow how your volvo xc90 proforms. We tow our bailey with our 2005 xc90 returned from Scotland covering 1500 miles towing with ease.
Enjoy your trip to Seahouses really is a nice area.

Regards Mike
