Our current Morello is 2006 and we would like to move to something a little newer but it must be GASLESS. We will consider any model if it meets this criterion.Margaret & Peter Lloyd firstname.lastname@example.org
My trusty Fiat Ducato, Poppy, has just passed her MOT and I now have to put her up for sale.
I am looking for a Murvi Pimento XL, ideally a late model with cab aircon. contact Andrew Thomas email@example.com
Well, having had further Lockdown restrictions imposed while in Morpeth and before we get locked up , we decided to escape across country.
Hartlepool , The Way of Love and The Way of the Sea.
We carry a Brompton bike under the fixed seat, so are tight for space. The handle of the coach bolt that anchors the seat prevents solid objects (such as levellers) from lying flat. This wastes valuable space.
Norfolk, The Broads…and more Sweetcorn.

Of course, it wasn’t what we had ideally planned. Nothing ever is these days, is it?
Having booked our ferry to Ireland for 31st August we didn’t fancy the two week quarantine on arrival, and with a second thought trip to Germany already abandoned and no chance of watching Le Grand Depart of Le Tour de France in Nice which was probably our dream first choice, we decided on a tour of England.

it seems obvious to me that an additional hand wash dispenser fixed above the sink for dishwasher liquid saves bothering with the conventional bottle.
The Morello is a bit short on places to put your coffee cup when stopping for a quick break. To save having to set up one of the tables every time, I created two “coffee shelves” using bookends
Martin Burrell has drawn up this guide for the use of others using his Morello; it may be suitable for adaptation by others.

In October 2014, nine vans camped on the car park of The Griffin pub in Heaton-Mersey while we enjoyed three days fascinating insights into the industrial heritage on Manchester with Steve Little as our expert guide.
To get going in the morning, a cuppa is essential, but the Morello lacks a suitable place to rest the cup. This stainless steel marine cup holder looks good and is solidly made. When closed it fits behind the sliding seat.
We appreciate that everyone has got their own ideas of what accessories are necessary, but it would be helpful to us to know what members think has been the most worthwhile one they have, and equally which one has been the most underused.
What a shock to the system, having left home on a cold, wet and windy day we arrived at our daughter’s to find temperatures of 30+ degrees, it took us over a week to adjust.
