    Hello Everyone!
    I'm Lyndsey, we have just bought our first motor home - an Kentucky Camp Estro 6 (Ford) Up to now we are having a great time in it! We like to wild camp, mostly next to water, as my hubby and the kids love fishing!
    Going into town for food, icecream, or general shopping is often a bit of a challenge! I had never noticed so many van barriers over the car parks before I drove the motor home:Eeek:
    Hope we dont let the side down!
    Lyndsey

    welcome to the forum

    Welcome to the forum... it is not until you own a motor home you see things like height barriers and the size of parking bays.. you are lucky.. trying getting an RV in to a parking area, especially if you are towing a car trailer.

    Wild camping is great, but you have to respect the area's you visit.. like where are you dumping your black waste? where are you getting your water from?

    Many questions, many answers.

    But welcome to this side of the moon.

    Bob, Sue and Ezzie the St Bernard.

    p.s £10 subs... best investment you will make ...

    Hi All

    Thanks for the welcome.:Smile:

    Bob
    We are very concious not to cause any damage when we camp wild. We never leave anything behind. Our bricks and mortar home is in the countryside so we are more than respectful of our environment.

    We tend to camp wild then find a site then wild again. We really dont like capsites - everyone eyeing up each others kit, and comparing vehicles:Eeek: to me it's like a housing estate mentality, too set up and regimental. But hey, each to their own! It's not about paying subs, it's about being somewhere amazing.

    i think you misunderstood Bobs comment re: subs.

    Bob was refering to the Motorhomefun full membership fee.....£10pa....not campsite fee's :thumb:

    without paying the subs you can only post 5 free posts then become a read only member.

    and as Bob said...well worth £10 :thumb:

    best tenner you will spend for a while.

    asking just one (to you) daft question could save you a lot more money than a tenner :thumb:
