    Hello!

    We've recently acquired a 1996 Ducato Granduca, forevermore known as 'Campymccampface', and are entering into the world of motorhoming.

    Thankfully, husband is a fulltime spanner monkey, but we'd really appreciate your top tips. At the moment we're preparing the van for use, tidying a few things up and giving it the onceover. We're also fitting it out with what we presume we'll need.

    We'd welcome your advice and top tips!

    Thanks

    Welcome, where do you plan on going? Plenty to see on your doorstep of course but are longer trips south for some sun planned?

    Hi, hoping to do lots of wilderness/mountainbiking/hillwalking in Scotland, but I'm from somerset and have family in Surrey so we'll be taking it on a few long uk journeys this year. Hoping for France next year.

    Hello and welcome from West Midlands.

    p.s. The best tip would be to join Motorhome Fun by paying the subscription. It's well worth it and you run out of posts after so many otherwise.
