    Hi all, we took delivery of our first campervan this weekend just gone, a Fifer Touring M. We have camped in the past but this is something new and exciting! Headed straight out for 2 nights and looking forwards to another 2 nights away this weekend! It will allow us to be more spontaneous than B&Bing and a bit more tolerant of not-so-nice weather than camping (of which we have plenty up here in Scotland).

    We chose a PVC as it seemed more manovourable (sp?) than a coachbuilt, and easier to get down small country lanes - we are planning our first longer trip in Devon for 10 days over Easter so ability to handle narrow lanes is important.

    Also hoping this will get us fit as will have to cycle or walk to the pub!

    Any general advice for newbies appreciated, otherwise look forwards to meeting you all on the forums!! :Smile:
