"WOW".....close but no cigar

May 8, 2017

 

we thought about upgrading a lot last season. we even tied up the poor sales guy wayne for hours & hours over a couple of days viewing various vans. he did his best producing multiple quotes & we almost went for one. but there was almost something holding us back. none of the vans we viewed had that "wow" factor for us. we loved one of them from the pics on the internet but when we actually stepped into one......it was more of an "ohhhh" rather than a "WOW"....

we'd given up hope & decided to wait till next season to see if any "wow"'s would make an appearance. we took our usual easter break down at the van with the kids & one day the wife says "lets just have a walk through the sales ground". we looked at a few "ohhhh"'s & then walked into a "WOW".....an abi clarendon. first impressions definitely ticked all the boxes. everything was great. lounge..check. kitchen..check. dining..check. bedrooms..check. en-suite..check. shower/w.c..check .  we loved every inch of this van.

 

"where's the 3rd bedroom" was when it turned back into an "ohhhh".............

 

deflated, we walked out of the patio doors, down the steps...........close but no cigar.

 

at that point, dejected, we were ready to just head back to our van when we stopped for a moment, turned around to have a final look at the clarendon....

 

"whats the one next to it? looks almost the same"......

 

couldn't believe our luck......it was a 3 bedroom version of the "WOW"

 

it was incredible.

 

so after putting poor sales guy wayne thro even more pain this year (we actually told him after yet more hours of quotes & viewings from him that we couldn't take the clarendon for one reason or another) we eventually signed for it on our leaving day which just so happened to coincide with wayne's birthday. " a nice little earner" as del boy would say.

 

I'd give wayne a gold medal for putting up with us & giving us the best advice.

 

did I mention the deal he got for us? it was most definitely a "WOW"
