    I know lots of solo's who really enjoy their travel, but I'm increasingly aware that lot's of people fear taking the motorhome out on their own. I'm writing an article called 'Motorhoming Solo' to encourage people to give it a go. In this article I would like to include as many real life examples as possible as these are the best motivators. . So if you could help by answering a few questions I'd appreciate it. NO REAL NAMES WILL APPEAR IN THE ARTICLE and your experiences will be strictly confidential.

    If you travel alone and would like to help. Please click here Thanks in anticipation. (y)

    I think that may apply not only to singles but to some couples whom dont like to travel by the selfs as well
    we know of one couple that will not travel outside yorkshire without another motorhome along for piece of mind

    Your post really made me laugh:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:. Is this true? Maybe Jim could write up case studies of Yorkshire folk who have dared to venture over the border and survived to tell the tale. (I'm from Yorkshire by the way.)(y)
    I suspect this is just dry Yorkshire humour and you're pulling our legs.:unsure:

    Seriously, though, @Jim I think this is an excellent idea.

    I have used ours a few times solo. It's amazing, with less weight on board the van is so much quieter. I've no idea why, this question may warrant a thread of it's own.

    Belive it or not it's true it's a aunt and uncle of mine both in their early 70is she will only go up east coast on there own they have had van 5 years and it's done less than 3000 miles the farthest it's been is Skegness and Blackpool and then we went with them once and her son once
    We offered to take them to shell island last summer god she flipped when she relised how far it was and would not go
    When she looks at what we have done in Europe and morocco she thinks we are mad
