    Having been sitting on the edge looking in for years I have finally taken the plunge and jumped in.

    Wanted a motorhome for years but working for ourselves running a B&B we don't ever get much time to get away but I sold a little piece of land to next door so decided to buy secondhand motorhome and try to make some time.

    We have bought a Mobilvetta Euroyacht 190. 2001 model but only 22k miles with one owner. All seemed fine to my untrained eye. It was one of the few A class that we have seen with a big enough lounge to relax and be comfortable in. Pick it up in a week's time. Will try to get away as often as possible even if only for a day or two. It will be a steep learning curve although we have rented a few times before.

    The masterplan :Rofl1::Rofl1: for when we eventually sell up business is to travel UK and Europe extensively in motorhome so will now get a chance to see how much we enjoy

    I would like to thank everyone on this forum for the information I have gleaned over the years while reading and researching. Now I can try to put some of it to good use.

    I will soon be firing some questions your way :helpsos:

    We've finally jumped in too!!

    Best of luck with your new purchase!

    I can't believe the parallel...

    We also have a guesthouse (in Blackpool) and we're picking up our first motorhome next Tuesday. It's an Ace Firenze, 2008 reg. We can't wait. Will probably find a place to spend one night in it next Wednesday, then we're going up to the North East (where I'm originally from) on 29th to seek my family's approval.

    Any comments or tips on the Ace Firenze would be appreciated.

    Phil
