Review – Carthago Liner-for-two

A recent stop off at RnRV in Silverdale to see the latest Carthago motorhome really got us going. It’s not often we step into a motorhome these days and see something that is new with regard to layout design and one that rings our bells as much as this model did. Paul and Rochelle were [...]

There was literally not a cloud in the clear blue sky and nothing to indicate that the Coast would be hit by a devastating weather bomb a few short weeks later. “The West Coast’s full,” we were told; as well as the wildfoods festival, the Wanaka A&P show was on, one of the very few [...]
