Out with the old, in with the new
The RAF Benson Motorhome Club welcomed the arrival of the new Elddis Majestic 196 Motorhome ahead of the 2019 Summer Season.
This was made possible by a grant from the Nuffield Trust.
The Officer in Charge, Flying Officer Ihe was delighted to offer Station Commander, Group Captain Wardrope the chance to look around the vehicle first. Committee members had the chance to show him the modern features that are on offer to his personnel. Acting Sergeant Chelcie Davies, was excited to be the first to hire the new motorhome for a long weekend away in the Cotswolds.
The Majestic 196 (supplied by Marquis) is the perfect holiday getaway for families and friends of all ages.
