    Alex and I are absolute newbies. We are looking to buy a newish coach built MH in the next few months having spent a year doing our research and visiting dealers and shows galore. We are nervous about driving one, but with decades have having driven holiday cars all over the show we know lots of places in Europe and the UK we would like to see.

    We like the Autotrail Tracker vehicles, the EKS or FB are high on our shortlist at the moment. Eddie our Border Terrier will accompany us wherever we go. Although the news of the new Imala range has surprised us a bit.Choosing is such a tricky business-I guess we just have to go for it.

    Spain, France, Italy and the old Yugoslavia as was are in our thoughts at present.

    I am retired, and Sandie is not far off. This site has been really helpful on all sorts of issues. Many thanks to all and we look forward to joining the MH community.

    Hello and thank you everybody for your replies and advice. We have booked a motorhome for a trip in England in late September as I quite agree, we may find it is not for us. I don't think that will happen but it is very sensible advice to try before we buy.

    I still need to figure out how to use this site properly. But I will ask questions about various matters as we proceed.

    Thanks again.
