    Thought it's about time I said hello formally after posting on the site a few times now.
    We're new to MH life and to be honest I hadn't thought anything about it until SWBO and I were chatting about getting one on a trip south in April. By early May we'd bought one ...... Swift escape 664, which is perfect for the two of us and the hound.
    Since May, we've been to Oban; toured N Yorkshire; done the Lake District ; done short breaks to Dunbar and Loch Lomond and just come back from a tour of the west highlands and Skye.
    We're absolutely loving it and are gearing up to do some extended touring next year to France and Northern Spain.
    This site has been worth every penny of the £15 membership. We've saved hundreds at VanBitz ...... Looking forward to some goodies getting fitted in October ...... Have managed to get the correct tyre pressures out of Continental tech support following suggestions here. Have managed to sort out whiffy grey water tank per suggested Coca Cola trick plus many other hints and tips all freely given by such an enthusiastic and friendly bunch.
    Think we'll be here a while and we're looking forward to many more great trips in our MH :roflmto:

    Well to be honest, I had some fairly major surgery in June so in thinking about getting our MH I was definitely in the "life's too short" mindset. Potentially it could have been but thanks to the amazing skills of surgeons, I'm through it all and feeling brand new. So onward and upward ....... and indeed lots of away in the MH in future whenever we can (y)

    Hello and so glad your op has been a success and you can carry on with this great hobby!
    We love it and even went on our first funster rally at Easter in Chester! It was great to meet so many Funsters and had a great time! Perhaps you can find one to visit too!
    Enjoy!

    Hello Welcome, sounds as if you were made for the Motorhome Life, it gives you a different degree of freedom to explore as you definitely seem to have discovered, nice introduction by the way .
