That seems a great idea, could be a good day out for us, nice run too! Thanks

Evening all 😊😊,
Bought our first Bongo last October un modified 8 seats?, Metallic Brown (looks to have been resprayed in Japan and a very good job) we've since had it colour matched, supposedly, looks like old Mazda brown but close to VW Met Toffee.
So far it's been great !!Only problem was pathetic heater! We tried bleeding it but first problem was it looks like it's had a new head ( the Ranger one) Didn't have bleed tube at all so had to fit one.Still didn't work even after deleting rear heater.
I fitted a cheap night heater, Eberspacher was too much, 2Kw off Ebay.Could buy 3 for price of Eberspacher, touch wood it's been great, very toasty.
Replaced Leisure battery with Optima yellow top, got another one plus original so plenty of power.
Getting ready for our first excursion soon.
Just bought a Khyam driveaway xc awning for more room.
Hoping to get on with full side kitchen conversion soon, doing it ourselves so we can customise it.Swivel seat from Bongospares.
Hope to catch up with fellow God's County members on our travels.

Mike, Debbi, Jack and TobyπŸ•

Prospective Bongo owner in Sheffield (hello!)
Still very much looking and learning about the Bongo and what to look for (and what to avoid) when buying.
Any other owners in Sheffield?
