    If you think driving a German camper is like driving an aircraft carrier its a good job you didn't buy an RV.

    All you have to do is to remember that in the UK YOU ARE NEAREST THE KERB all the time.

    If your passing pop in.

    Have Fun

    Probably not at all like driving an aircraft carrier, they don't steer as quick as road vehicles, them floaty things, do they? :Rofl1:

    The correct spelling of that make of van is immaterial - we call em Dead Legs!

    And Chaussons are Socks (cos someone we met with one, said she kept calling theirs a Chaussette by mistake)

    Hi and welcome, enjoy your new van. You'll get used to it...:thumb:

    Hey Jenny, no, steering is pretty poor. This rig I'm on has about half mile turning circle at full speed.:Eeek:

    yes indeed Dave..

    I remember vividly the first time I drove my 36ft Georgieboy... :Eek!: but you soon settle down to it..

    After a few years driving then going back to a car felt like driving a Dinky toy..
