    Hi Guys,

    Just saying hello and introducing ourselves. We've had caravans when we lived in Germany (Army) then got back into it again a few years ago, but have always aspired to a Motorhome so took the plunge and took delivery last Easter of our Pilote Explorateur P731 LGJE. In fairness i wish we had picked one with a better lounge area and an A class, but you do what you can and apart from that we love it. It's called The Gruff Bus (don't ask)! We love the layout of the raised single beds over the huge garage. We've got a hydraulic rack to put our Vespa on but planning on getting rid of that and buying a trailer for the scooter so we can also have our bikes on a rack on the back as well as the Scoot. Last year we went to Spain twice fishing on the mighty Ebro, most rounds of the BTCC as well as a few relaxing weekends away. This year we have to use to 2 weeks of precious holiday time to visit our daughter in Florida but will be at most of the BTCC again, Germany/Austria for the Oktoberfest and then relaxing weekends away. So yeah, hello to everyone, looking forward to joining in with this club!
