    Hello everybody - happy to be on the site

    Kids have all left home, leaving just us and the dog...

    So after lots of thinking and investigation, we opted for a motorhome..never had one before but hey, it's our time to have fun.....

    Found the exact layout and model we wanted - we pick it up next week and we cannot wait..

    How excited are we!!!!

    You are so right.....

    It's like being a kid in the run up to Xmas....

    We have been out buying all the bits and bobs so we just have to add food, water and fuel to then disappear on our adventures...

    As we are absolute novices, we have booked a site only an hour away for a weekend so we can get used to it, parking, levelling etc....

    The dog is rather confused as we have got him a harness so he can be secured in the van..... He's not sure what the devil is going on...

    Bring it on!!

    Welcome. Our kids have nearly left home, but keep coming back. They were mortified by our MH acquisition but seem to be joining us all the time......We too had never had a MH before this year, but are having a ball. No regrets. Enjoy. One of our best decisions, hope it is for you too

    Good idea to have a week near to home - if you have forgotten something or something doesn't quite work your local knowledge should be a godsend. We have only had our Mh since May this year (after 35 years of caravanning) - should have done it sooner
