    Hi, yet more newbies here...Kevin and Fiona,

    Have decided to sell toys and stuff, buy a nice MH and disappear in to the sunset due to happenings that I won't bore you with.
    Plan is to get said MH sorted this year and then to Europe for 6 months next year.
    Still have not found the right one yet but one problem, that you guys have already helped with, is that we want to take a motorbike. Obvious weight/size problems ( the bike/MH that is ) would prefer a garage, if not strap it to the back but not scared to tow it either.
    Having fun looking.

    Welcome to fun. My brother lives in Oban and tells me that it has rained every day for 40+ days so where does the sunny bit fit in?:LOL:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] @obanvanman you are most :welc: and best of luck in your search.

    I needed to go for a garage because of the weight of mine (250kg) and was limited to garages with a height of 1250mm, which came down to two vans that we liked.......the Carthago l51 Linerclass, and the Frankia Platin which is the one we went for. Here are some pictures of the mods I'm making in the rear most garage.......

    Welcome from a few miles South!

    We have had a very mild winter and an unusually dry spring, if it were like this all the time and with no midges it would be overcrowded!

    You live in a beautiful part of our country. We'd love to live somewhere like that. . We have to put up with just visiting such places.
    Welcome to the forum.
