Website update and custom programming started a couple of weeks ago and the work is still not complete! Sorry for any inconvenience all this may be causing you but everything is in the hands of the programmers and I'm trying my best to have it all sorted as soon as possible!
I'm having the website updated and also having a couple of custom programming jobs done based on customers feedback. If there is anything you can think of which may improve the use of the website please let me know. I'm sorry for any inconvenience the current work may be causing.
As a follow up from our last Site News of 13th Jan, you may or may not have noticed our new logo! We've been thinking about changing the name Motorhome-Auction for a while, not only because it may sometimes sound a bit too commercialised to some users but because a lot of people were having difficulty finding the website, for reasons mentioned in the previous news post. You will still get to the website using www.motorhome-auction.co.uk and also with www.alfrescobay.co.uk as soon as I manage to get things set up.
Alfresco Bay was the original name we were going to use for the website but had a rethink just before going live with things and swapped it to Motorhome Auction. We thought Motorhome-Auction would be more to the point, 'does what it says on the tin' sort of speak, and be easy for everyone to find. We hope this change to Alfresco Bay doesn't cause you any confusion and that it meets your approval as a more suitable name considering the nature and aims of the site. Soon we will be integrating with the social networking site Facebook since this seems a very popular way of like minded people to communicate and keep in touch with everyone.

Hi and Happy New Year,
We hope you all had a good holiday and the festive video of the team we sent you brought a smile.
The website is having a slight revamp to keep up with technology
and the increasingly popular social networking phenomena. There are dozens of
motorhome forums on the internet and since ours is seeing very little action we
need to consider alternatives which would be of more interest and benefit to
you. A Blog has been considered and also a Facebook page. We are also
considering a new website name because we noticed since doing the shows last
summer that quite a substantial amount of people were visiting someone else's
website believing it was ours. This was caused by a simple mistake of
not putting the hyphen between Motorhome and Auction when typing
www.motorhome-auction.co.uk into their browser address bar. When
people visited the other, unrelated website they felt let down because it is
not an auction site at all but just another website with affiliate links
to motorhomes listed on ebay and as a result visitors don't bother looking for
The idea of our website is to create an economical and friendly marketplace
for like minded people who enjoy everything to do with motorhomes and the great
outdoors. The general consensus is that people are increasingly becoming more frustrated,
disappointed and tired of the faceless commercialness of big, costly, and un-personable
organizations such as ebay etc.
Our idea for a friendly and more trustworthy niche marketplace will only
work with your support and participation so please take advantage of the
services this site offers and part with the things you no longer need or want
by listing them on here. Let others have the enjoyable opportunity of winning a
bargain by bidding for your unwanted items. If you are looking for something
which is not listed or you are having trouble finding elsewhere why not make
use of the Wanted Ads so everyone visiting the site can see you are looking for
a specific motorhome, accessory or part. You never know, whatever it is youíre
after might just be sitting idle or unwanted in someoneís garage, workshop or
So, hereís to a friendly, fun and fulfilling year ahead. Wherever you
may be travelling and whatever you enjoy doing donít forget to mention us to
your friends and family, and let everyone you meet know about our website.
Kind regards and all the best,
Shaun, Nette & Thomas
The Motorhome Show Season Finale at Lincoln has just past last weekend and what a cold and wet time we had! Still, plenty of you braved the horrible weather to look around the trade stands and all the motorhomes for sale. The evenings entertainment was pretty good again, like all Warners shows. I was on my own again as Thomas was at school so I arrived Wednesday evening so I had all day Thursday to set things up and left Monday morning after packing a soggy tent and other gear.
The wind over the weekend was pretty bad, I was lucky nothing of mine blew away or was damaged but other traders weren't so lucky.
Very troubled sky!

Buddy Holly. Not the best of photos but the best I could do from my mobile phone.
Well, what a show. Cowboys and indians everywhere, shootouts, pistol drawing competitions, falconry. Oh, and lots of new and used motorhomes, accessories and related things.
