    The day finally arrived and we collected our new motorhome last Friday. Many thanks to those who recommended sites - we settled on Padstow Touring Park which I couldn't fault in any way.
    While I relaxed and 'his lordship' discovered what all the buttons, switches, nozzles & locks do we are now getting ready for our first weekend of wild camping back in Cornwall.
    We couldn't get over how friendly you fellow motorhomer's are, everyone we passed waved and smiled like old friends - the only regret we have is not doing this before!

    Glad you like Padstow Touring Park its been one of our favourite sites unfortunately we were turned away this year. The lady said RVs were too heavy and a strict 28ft max limit. Shame we liked the site, anyway don't own the RV anymore and the next m/home will be a European. :thumb:
