A cracking Christmas at Choose Leisure; Alyson and Steve unwrapped their brand new Carthago C-Tourer i143 LE.

The elves (aka the Marketing team) wrapped the entire motorhome ready for this surprise. It took us a good four hours but Alyson and Steve made every minute worth it with the most fantastic reaction! Safe to say, they tore the paper off a LOT quicker than we put it on!

Relatively new to the motorhoming lifestyle, the couple want to see more of the UK so will take their new Carthago to Scotland and the Lake District. They also enjoy France where they find even more freedom, with the number of handy stopovers and wide open roads. Their journey advice: take time to understand your needs and be patient in finding the right motorhome, and download useful apps such as 'Park4Night'.

Wishing you many happy miles in your Carthago - cheers to a new year full of adventures!

Check out our YouTube Channel to see how we wrapped it. We'll also be uploading Alyson's reaction soon - our favourite bit: The Choose Leisure YouTube Channel.

NB: 'France Passion' is also a recommended app for finding motorhome-friendly vineyards to stay over - another handy tip from our customers from a handover last week.
