    I hope I am not a fraud, for we do not own a motorhome yet. We have camped/caravanned for too many years to remember, and over the years have looked at motorhomes but never felt we had the time to get the value from one. Now, semi retired and hoping fairly soon to be retired fully, we will have the time.
    We still are not 100% decided we will buy, but have sought advice from a good and reliable friend who has had one for a number of years.
    Our problem seems to be we have grandchildren and to get at least 4 designated seats and the driver we are either in the 'starter' market, not luxurious but very practical, or, we are into huge vehicles and lottery win money to purchase.
    So i really need advice on two models in particular.
    I will search for the appropriate thread and post there.:Doh:

    Thanks to you all for your welcome, :clap: it arrived 8 July and we have done a couple of dry runs to get used to the vehicle's characteristics, and several periods of testing everything at home. First trip very soon. Very pleased with our dealer so far, Spinney at Cranage nr Holmes Chapel/Crewe. Terry, I would add one thing to layout/layout - storage! I have to say even though its early days this Fiat 2.3 drives just like a car, fingers crossed.
