If you have a penchant for fine motoring allied with a slight tendency to jealously, may I respectfully suggest you move to another blog post now? Partly because if my first test of the year were a stick of rock it would have ‘Mercedes-Benz’ printed through it.
It began with the delivery of the fabulous Auto-Sleepers Gloucester motorhome, built on a Mercedes chassis. Suffice to say, if you’re looking for a well-specified vehicle that’s a joy to drive – and supremely comfortable to live in – you’ll be hard pushed to better the Gloucester. You can find out more in March’s issue of Camping & Caravanning.
Since it was still the school holidays, I enjoyed my daughter’s company on the trip down south. We spent a great evening on site, putting the Gloucester’s Avtex TV/DVD player through its paces with a five-series box set of The Big Bang Theory.

She took a less conventional path into magazine journalism via physics and a decade in computer consultancy, turning to caravanning and writing during a career break as a full-time mum.
Her interests are wide and include the Club’s Archive – though she’s careful to wash her hands after checking 1919 editions of the Club’s magazine to avoid lurking traces of influenza.
