    Hello funsters

    Just joined but long time campers.

    We are fortunate to have a 1971 VW Bay window which we mainly use in the summer for VW rallies and the odd night away, We we have a growing 10 year old and vey active dog e also bought an Eriba Puck last year to pull along behind.

    Then a couple of things happened.

    • Got made redundant with a reasonable pay off and then found a job straight away
    • This coincided with experiencing and hearing a couple of stories of people contracting cancer young or getting ill straight after retiring
    This rather changed my outlook on life resulting in a "live life now" decision to spend a good lump of my retirement pot on the above vehicle which we purchased new from Premier Motorhomes in December 2013.(Excellent Dealer and a cracking vehicle)

    We like to camp all year round so generally use the vehicles 2 out of 3 weekends a year, every half term and summer holidays. So far we've been to Ireland, the Ardennes, France, Wales, Cornwall, Somerset, Devon, the New Forest and the Forest of Dean. We generally combine hobbies such as walking, cycling, dog walking and kayaking.

    This year thinking about Austria

    Looking forward to giving and receive hints and tips and sharing advice
