Hi from Rainy Scotland

Hi, I am the newish proud owner of a Predom n126 dated 1977....still going strong and, after a great deal of hard work, looking good. This is a joint venture between my daughter and I as we couldn't find anywhere to holiday with 4 dogs.
I have completed the interior but sadly, the outside has been (badly) painted and needs attention- that's next winter's job.
Next week is our maiden voyage to the Scottish border town of Kelso....provided DH fits the new the jockey wheel, wheel bearings and brake shoes in time!!
Hopefully, for once, it'll be Sunny Scotland

It's fortunate that bad paint jobs don't make camping more difficult. Have fun using the Predom.

A little under 200 km to Kelso, right? That's a comfortable trip.

Welcome Chrisanne from snowy Calgary, Albert, Canada
I have been following your weather as we have a trip planned to Scotland the last 2 weeks in May, I am hoping the weather improves. We are staying near Aviemore for a week then near Ballater for the second week. Our plans are to travel throughout Scotland ... with a few side trip to a distillery or two or ...

Hello Chrisanne-Welcome! Mike and I were in Scotland last year, and spent two weeks driving around, but not camping. We stayed at a bed and breakfast in Dumfries and took long day trips everywhere. What a beautiful country you live in! We were amazed at the beautiful pheasants and wonderful red stag deer. Please post pictures!

What a friendly lot..such a nice welcome for a newbee to forum chat.
Glad to hear you all like Predoms. I'm afraid I'm becoming a bit of a geek on the subject. We bought him (Titch) on EBay as a bit of an impulse purchase and he was still very much 1970/80's interior. We hadn't realised that he was a 1977 build and were a bit gobsmacked. I ripped out everything possible as he was lined with beige carpetting, had bright orange curtains and brown striped upholstery. I've had such fun renovating and I'm delighted with the end result! Please bear in mind that its all about dogs in my life!!
Yes Scotland is beautiful and I don't complain about the rain TOO much. If we didn't have rain, we wouldn't have the lush, verdant scenery- you can't have it all ways.
Ian.G I'm sure your trip in May will be wonderful, usually that's about the best weather of the year AND before Midge Season! Just dab some whisky on any midge bites and you'll be fine! ;-)
Planning to drive slowly and carefully to Kelso...no flying airships- unless there's some really really big speed bumps!!

Looks like you're trailer has definitely "gone to the dogs". Maybe you could hitch up (pun intended) with a "crazy cat lady". Sorry, I have a really bad American sense of humor.

Good day Chrisanne....

It is great to hear from someone from the other side of the pond. We have an out door recreational area near here in Ontario called Kelso (skiing, hiking and biking). Sounds like you have an interesting trailer. What are you using as a tow vehicle for your trailer? Thnxs.
