    Hello all
    I and my wife are newbie motorhome owners. We have bought a second hand Bailey 620 Approach from well known West Yorkshire dealer in Huddersfiels. The previous owner put in some lovely extras including a reversing camera, bike rack, satellite TV and Alpine sat nav. I suspect the previous owner may be a member here!

    Anyway, we will both be retired in April and intend to travel around the UK and France (at least in the first instance). We are completely inexperienced and are having to learn very quickly. We ahve had three local trips and leaned a lot about the van and her idiosynchrises but we are still flumoxed by her heating, the satnave and also the reverse cam. We will search for answers on this excellet forum and hopeflly, will, in time, ourselves contribute.

    Thanks kcy. We intend to enjoy both the MH and our retirement. After 40 years of work and never having enough time to enjoy the things we like, now is the time for us to indulge. Sounds selfish I know but what the heck!

    As a newbie, I will undoubtedly accept the generous offers of help though I will try and search before asking questions that have probably been asked 100's of times!

    I think you have run out of free postings so will need to part with £15 to ask any questions.
    Don't be afraid to ask any questions as even if they have been asked before, the good people on here will always answer (y)
    Enjoy your new motor home

    Hi and :welcome4: to Fun. Is there a smiley sticker in the van, that will tell you if it was a Funsters van in another life?

    Yes Nige loves it up here and he's from London! We are hopeful we might move back this year, if we ever sell our place in Scarborough :)

    pappajohn, why do you call Scarborough the anti-motorhoming capital of Yorkshire?
    Do they have an over restrictive overnight policy?
