How do Stoke and football go together :D ... welcome to the forum.
Having Watched stoke last night I don't think I could offer a convincing argument to your question:( So Lancs is a big place with lots of teams, which one is yours? More importantly what are your tips for a new cali owner?

I’m thinking exactly the same as you - everything you said is on my list and will also take bedding from home. I’m going to get a large see-through bags for storing bedding. I think I’m getting the collapsible kettle for Christmas. At some point I’d like to get a cosy, washable rug.
Good point on the rug, I was looking at the tailored (around the tracks) carpets but they are expensive and I didn't even look if they were washable. Let us know what you find.

Hey! We are Coast owners to be in ever so sunny Cheshire :) our van is due 1st Feb, options chosen are:
Starlight blue colour
Privacy windows
Bellows with front panaormic view
Wood effect flooring
80l tank
Mud flaps
Rear view camera
17'' Davenport wheels
Also added a bike rack to be fitted by the dealer before collection

This will make a perfect van for us :)

We are off to campervan bits on Saturday to purchase: seat covers, mattress topper and look at pop up topper options, porta potti to mention a few. Nothing purchased so far except m&s coverless duvets and a blanket

Looking forward to seeing pics of your van and welcome to the Group

I can't help you there I'm afraid, hopefully next week I will be an owner :bananadance2

I am a Man by birth from the Red side of the City so suffering at the moment.

Errr?? No hate, we're waiting for our Coast...

Was just saying that it's not worth adding loads of options to a Coast...

I’ve got a little list of things people have said on this forum. Dunelm Marvel shaggy mat is on it - cheap!!
I feel the van needs warming up so thought that might help. I think I will get Christmas out the way then look for some bargains in January.

Our Coast is CW50 build, so tomorrow! Hopefully early Feb delivery to Breeze. Ascot Grey, LED, Nav, bellows, rev camera, 17" Devonports.

Pre-purchases...
Freshtec Duvalay topper (I have reservations about this, but not yet tried so we'll see. Originally Campervantastic shipped the wrong topper, a memory foam one. Very quickly rectified but the Freshtec seems to be nothing more than a low density sheet of std foam. Nothing 'tec' about it in design. People say it's a great product tho, so hopefully will be money well spent.)
Some hooks for back of headrest poles.
Ridge Monkey
Private plate from DVLA (probs should have spent this money on something useful :)

Next will be gas, hook-up cable and maybe porta-potty.
Window tint to be done locally (£225) as privacy glass isn't dark enough imo.

Not sure yet. 25m but no clue which one. Any thoughts?
When I hired a van the cable was a nightmare to wind up so it has to be something that’s tidy. I believe you can buy a bag. I have read 1.5 is long enough and to get arctic cable.

I have had my eyes on this set up. Price looks really good.

What are the sway bars? Are they anti-roll bars? A factory fitted option?

I appear to have grasped the wrong end of the stick, sorry.

Congrats on your order Algor.
Theres no Coast v Ocean v Beach rivalry here. Their all Californias and all great vans.
