As you can see from the first post below, the image in the heading of the newspaper cutting is a snail. He was called Oscar and was the logo for the Sevices Caravan Club (Germany).
As an active rally member of the SCC(G) I was presented with a plaque of Oscar's image, reproduced at the head of the blog, and the original is on the wall inside my current caravan........ which is.......
seen here, under a light August shower, with my tug parked alongside.
Its a 2010 Coachman Wanderer Lux 19/4 which, I understand, was a limited anniversary edition based on the Amara 560/4 for Wandahome Knottingley.
We bought it at the beginning of this month and "Oscar" has been sitting on the drive itching to get out on our first shake down run in a week's time. In the meantime I have been exploring the modern facilities that I never had in those early days of my caravanning life. More about that in subsequent blog posts is the plan.
A few shots of the interior are about to be posted in the caravanning photo gallery (link button above), but this shot is to introduce Oscar, to the right of the door, in his new home having spent the last 25 years in a box!
