    Well after a bit of deliberation... well actually not a great deal of deliberation in fact... we're in the process of buying our motorhome! Very excited!!!

    We chose the MH whilst on holiday and now home we measured up to see if it would fit on the drive. It won't fit so a fence and my little den will have to move. A small price to pay but it will mean a bit of a delay in picking the vehicle up. Hopefully we'll be able to get it at the end of June - I can't wait!!

    Maybe make the area as big as possible, while you are at it. Never know what the future holds...

    Another one here who measured the drive after purchasing.

    Unfortunately we didn't have the ability to make space for it short of demolishing the garage.:doh:

    Hi - well I measured at least 50 times.

    It fit. Just by about 15cm on my drive - SO relieved!

    Just make sure that you take into account any overhang that may exist on guttering/porch and any external mods such as tow bar and reversing camera.

    I measured my drive @ 6.9m.

    The manufacturer states that it is 6.48m - plenty of room. Not quite!

    Hi Oriel - welcome to the fun house.

    The fence at the bottom of our drive has now been 'adjusted' 3 times ... twice to extend the length and once to increase the width! As we now are 'into' panel van conversions hopefully it won't ever have to move again! :D

    What MH are you getting? :)
