    Hello everyone. we have just joined as we have decided now is the time to buy our first MH.

    We did have one in the 70's but that was a totally different era of course. Recently we have been hiring in Canada so have some background in what we want although of course we do realise that the roads are just a little different here. We also discovered that the size of the vehicle dosen't have any bearing on the bed size and as I am 6' 4" it can be hard to get a good nights sleep in a small bed.

    We also have a narrowboat which we built ourselves as we do like to be comfortable and to have what we want!

    Our search so far has lead us to an Autotrail Chieftain G but it scares my wife as she says it is too long but then her car is a Micra because its small! My wife has decided that the Cheyenne 696G is more suitable so we may well be buying one of these:Wink: Although I would still like to carry on looking

    Had a good read through already and this seems to be a really friendly forum with a lot of helpful people, I will try not to ask to many silly questions but you never know.

    :welcome:Stroudwaterboy To MH Fun

    Go on ask away stupid questions or not.

    I have always said every one has the right to be stupid, it's the ones that abuse the privilege that annoy .:Wink:

    Hope you finally decide on a van

    Best of luck

    Hi and Welcome:thumb:

    I'm from Gloucestershire as well Forest of Dean.:BigGrin:

    I also have a 36ft A class and a tow jeep which I store in Florida and try to spend 5 or 6 months a year in, touring around, just returned from a 3 month tour. Also just downsized to a B+ here in the UK, had an A class here as well but found it too restrictive due to its size, every trip had to be planned now we just go with virtually no planning its great.

    Take your time looking don't be rushed into buying the wrong thing its a lot of money if you get it wrong. Plenty of vehicles for sale and it is a buyers market don't be frightened to make a silly offer you can always go up but never down. Try not to be too influenced by others you have to live with whatever you buy and they all have good and bad points none are perfect.

    Good Luck:thumb:
