By now we had entered the second lockdown period so all non-essential journeys were no longer possible. Companies can do “click and collect” but we thought collecting a caravan was bending the rules a bit too much. But, home delivery seems to have really taken off and Venture offered to deliver the caravan. A Covid-secure walkthrough of our new caravan was done via YouTube a few days before delivery.
As we waved a fond and emotional goodbye to our Grande that we had taken to the Arctic Circle, less than 2 hours later Dave arrived with our new caravan. A social distance hand over of the keys on the end of a corner steady winding handle was done.
The next challenge was to get the 8ft wide twin axle caravan up our S-shaped 9ft wide driveway with no motormover! We safely made it and the weekend continued with a Drivecation and to reload our belongings and refit the motormover.
As part of our drivecation we neared completion of the jigsaw of the Brindisi and our daughter at the photoshoot, very fitting we thought given the homely surroundings of our Grande SE.
