    Hi, I am new to M/H Fun but it all makes interesting reading.
    I am thinking of taking a year out following a major health scare this year ( new heart valve and a stroke) Anyway I am well now and want to see the UK. It will be just me and my crazy springer spaniel and I want to drive anti-clockwise aroung UK's beaches starting in March and then see how far I get before the winter starts again.
    I have no Motorhome yet, so any suggestions will be welcome. I am looking for a 4 berth as friends and family my well hook up with me at times.
    Where is the best, safest and cheapest place for a lone female to park up for the night?
    Anyone have any reccomendations of fabulous places to see ( ashamed to say I have never been to Devon or Cornwall )
    Any other tips would be welcome too, Thanks xx

    Welcome to FUN and I'm sure someone will be along shortly to answer your question, thats the beauty of this forum. As for the choice of motorhome, it's all down to lay out and what suits you, good luck. :xThumb:

    Hi Dawn,
    Welcome to the best MH forum available. Be sure that whatever question you have somebody on here will have the answer.

    You may find that a trip to the N.E.C. for the Caravan and Motorhome Show from February 17th to 22nd useful. You don't have to buy anything but it would be an opportunity to see lots of different vehicles offering a variety of layouts and features.
    It may help you to decide what is going to fit your needs best.

    Stef.
