    My motorhome is still in winter storage, winterised. Having unpacked him yet. I like the look of your motorhome, very practical! Mine is much too big, it is like driving a block of apartments. :LOL:

    The Autocruise is ideal for me as a solo motorhomer. She is 6.2m long and very usable...you need to get your mo out soon as you can,and enjoy yourself. Get down to the southern motorhome show and meet up with many funsters

    I was happy driving my MH until one summer day last year when a BMW decided he could get in between me and a line of parked cars (it was my right of way) and he took the side off his BMW. Barely touched my MH, in fact I still can't tell which bit of MH was such effective weapon on his BMW. Have now lost my nerve for driving it on small roads. My bad.

    Hi Khizzie again,
    I know you've been over before but thought this might help.

    Waverley park is a bit different from Whitefield , a bit more compact but easy walk to seafront thru c/site town not too far, here's a couple of hints on where to drive.
    Anywhere on the island no more than 45 mins away. loads of places worth visiting , (depending size of moho) ours is just under 7mtr & 2.3 wide , 90% of places I haven't had a problem. Any help just ask , when are you coming over.

    Fort victoria ( free parking ) some sea view parking, well worth a visit , nice walk along sea wall into Yarmouth or in the other direction a longer walk thru to alum bay via Colwell bay & Totland bay
    Culver parade beach side car park (not free) opposite zoo, just up the road from dinosaur museum lovely sea views (also fab rock cakes from the cafe there), can walk into sandown town.
    Culver down , great views (can illegally overnight up here), lovely walks around the down & old fort, ignore 6ft6 restriction sign.
    Appley park Ryde (free) just a bit further along past the canoe lake on the seafront, CP is 100 yds from beach & nice walks along seawall to puckpool park or back into town.
    Cowes park n ride opposite Aldi bus takes you into town and promenade & all the yachts etc
    Blackgang to freshwater bay nice drive with several N.T. beach or cliffs car parks small charge. (no overnight parking)
    Alum bay (coloured sands views of the needles , Needles battery (worth a visit) + old rocket stn derelict know. car park £5 a day
    Osbourne house & Carisbrooke castle both historical interest with large car parks.
    Newport main town with the usual shops best car park coppins bridge CP ( not free) it's on your left on the round about as you enter Newport from East Cowes or there's Morrisons 2 hr free in town.
    Lake CP , nice cliff top walks or circular walk to Shanklin & Sandown along cliff back via seawall
    Loads of pubs & restaurants all over the place
    if you need gps for any just ask
    bus pass's £24 for 7 days unlimited per person.

    Thanks for info fidget.have been to Waverley two years ago so know what to expect ,its ideal base for me as I use a bus pass ,and the buses there are. Brilliant... I love the island and when my Kate was alive we visited at least twice sometimes three times a year,.never ever get bored.this time I have persuaded a couple of campers who have never been before to meet up with me so that they can also see what a beautiful island it is away from places that are heavy touristy places...hope to meet you therecor a chat or whatever if you are not away....Roy
