Some months ago we arranged to get some old time Dethleffers together at the old haunt where we first met at Miranda Hot Pools.
Bruce and Judy with Rafe’s twin brother (Motorhome, younger by a month) from Coromandel, and Gary and Dianne from Taupo with their Neismann and Bischoff Arto 88. Gary and Dianne started with a Dethleffs Esprit and then later and Dethleffs XLI.
Its always good fun to come here especially in the middle of winter. Nothing beats a soak in a Hot pool!
It was great to catch up with the crew and for me, its always great to see what Bruce has added to his Motorhome being identical to ours.

Grant and Sharron arrived the next day from Hamilton in their Holiday Rambler. We caught up with them with their friends and their Ramblers at Tokerau a year or so ago.
Miranda Holiday Park has changed hands and as its a while since I’ve been here there have been some notable changes.
Bruce and Judy having dogs, had a fenced off area at the back which meant their two dogs could wander around their Motohome park without disappearing off around the camp. A fantastic addition for the camp for Dog lovers.
There is also a Volley Ball / Badminton net and some more cabins added at the back which were all booked out when we were there. Nice!
We had fun reminiscing with the first Dethleffs getother and the changes over the years.. that was nearly 5 years ago !
A fun weekend.
On the way home we stopped in at Kaiaua for our favourite Fish and Chips for lunch.
