    Hi folks

    We're new here and on the look out for some advice from the vast experience around.

    A one time owner of a Rimor 4 berth that just wasn't right (layout, wife hitting her head numerous times on the first trip out etc...). 2 children later and we're on the lookout for a sizable MH for long weeks in the sun. Which forum would be the best place to ask for advice on which motorhomes have specific layouts etc?

    Thanks in advance!

    Mike and Julie

    That's a big subject. If you have already decided which layout/class/size you think would suit you then tell us and I'm sure you will get loads of advice. If you haven't already decided then buy a copy of MMM Magazine - at the back it lists all the different motorhomes along with info on the layouts etc. For example I want a rear lounge and although I thought I knew all the options the magazine told me of a further option I wasn't aware of. Good luck, and

    In addition to the above reply, I would also suggest looking around dealers. There are a couple in the area....

    :HelloThere: & :pink:

    from anothe Norfolk resident.

    I reckon we now have have sufficient Narfoook Funsters to set up our own separate area!

    Good luck with your search for your search for the perfect layout ... you don't say if you are looking for new or used, but in either case I would get over to Becks at Rollesby and Simpsons at Yarmouth where you will find a good selection to start with.

    Hello and welcome
    Take the children and try lots out if possible ( they will both want the over camp bed if you go for that layout!)
    Good luck and happy travels:hiya2:

    Welcome. Although we live in Kent we bought our Hymer recently from Becks who are near Norwich. Good dealer who we would recommend.

    Hello from another Norfolk newbie :):)
    Icantremember is right, Becks is a great place to sus out layout preferences, we were regular visitors for a good 6 months. Lol

    Welcome from down the road in sunny Suffolk. "Norwich such a fine city" See you in the Championship next year, and I take no pleasure in saying it.

    We also live just outside Norwich and can recommend Simpsons of Gt Yarmouth, yiu can come and view our motorhome if that would help.
    Don't forget the Norfok M/H show at the Showground in July as well.
