    Rodney

    Having lurked in the background for a couple of months I finally decided to take the advice and went to see Ant.
    He talked me into something £2000 cheaper than my top price!
    A week later I drove my new (S/H) C15 - 1995 from Bristol to Nottingham, in the fog / snow / ice.
    Apart from the obligatory "first roundabout, braking experience" everything went smoothly.
    So it's hello from me and "Rodney" and I look forward to meeting all you people who have unwittingly helped me in the past 2 months ...............

      Hi Barry

      Glad you have taken the plunge, Rodney sounds great and I love the name. One thing you will be assured of is excellent after sales service from Ant. Just do what we do and go down to Ant for a service by making a little camping trip of it, there are some nice campsites round and about Bristol.

      It sounds like you are from our neck of the woods so we will look out for you and Rodney and give you a wave.

        Glad you were aware. It will not be a problem. You should also be aware that after a long trip in the van you are likely to stand a small modern car on its nose at the first roundabout if you drive one

        Welcome from me, and happy camping with Rodders.

          I have heard that in the C15 brakes can be considered an 'optional extra' what fun.

            As Ant would remind us C15 brakes are OK as long as they get frequent and regular maintenance. Modern cars are getting to the stage where people wont need to drive them.

            By the way when we had a C15 it was called Rodney but our Outlook is called Rosie. We have always named our vehicles and I have been known to talk to them, at least they dont answer back.

              I had a C15 and the day I bought it I took it for a full service,belt change and lubrication and Brake check and adjust.
              Over the following years,with regular service and adjustments I never had the slightest problem,she was completely reliable and the brakes were good and positive.Again,I figured its my neck on the line so why take risks by skimping on services .
              C15``s are very good vehicles and lovely romas.

                Doris

                I also have a sat nav called Doris! In my previous incarnation as a born again biker we had many arguments about route direction. She always seemed to want to use the scenic route. "recalculating, recalculating, reca....". Eventually she broke down and had to be sent for repair last year. She seems happier now that she has Rodders to guide ;-)
                Oooer! Ant said I'd start getting a bit eccentric ......................

                  You are going to have to change her name,Rodney`s bird was called Cassandra,very fitting for your little gadjet,Cassandra was a greek princess who could make accurate predictions,unfortunately no-one believed her.
