    Hello to you all,

    My wife and I have been happy caravaners for some years and enjoyed every minute, even when clouded in midges in the far north of Scotland.

    However, this year, returning from Spain through France (without the van) we could not help noticing the arrangements made by even small towns and villages for motorhome owners. We have never fancied taking a caravan onto the continent, but like the idea of a motorhome. We are now light of pocket but richer by owning a Carthage Chic I51 and can't wait for the new season to start, hopefully our fist trip will be in January.

    Looking forward to getting the most out of Motorhome Fun and our new hobby.

    Freddy & Betty
