    We are getting more confident. I think everyone is a bit anxious when they first start motorhoming. Glad to hear your weekend was fun.

    Fantastic. We have just been up to Leyburn, N Yorks, in the car today and it was great to see all the MHs and caravans out on the road once more. Yes, I think everybody is a bit nervous about leaving the MH when you go out but you soon get used to that. As long as you take sensible precautions, why would they pinch yours and not somebody else's? Rather than keep driving the MH to points of interest, we now try and stay near to a bus route. Much easier.

    You'll soon get used to driving it around, I fitted a reversing camera to mine as it had a six foot blind spot at the rear, the camera means you can see that there are no children or concrete posts right behind you. The more you drive it the easier it will get.

    Ralph was , he isn't now.
    I still am .
    I'm OK driving it , even through built up areas now :Laughing:
    I can drive it to the storage place and park up, but thats easy i just a drive in , and leave in our spot. I can do the supermarket car park .
    I haven't tried to reverse park into a spot , say between 2 parked cars, at the side of a road.
    Ralph says i could do it , its just doing it. Confidence. :Blush:

    Course you could Bev. Admittedly, I've not done it in the Buccaneer but you've driven one, you've driven them all. You can do it.
