    Hi all, from the Gers. Been motorhoming since 2008 in a French built Eriba Car, and I still love it. Done 80k kms, with an engine change last year after a blow up near Aix. I travel round France, Spain and Portugal racing a classic bike in the summer, with a shopping trip to UK every 18 months. We're under 4" (11cms) of snow at the moment, waiting for a trip to Herefordshire next month. I'll be looking for new tyres, leisure battery and silver screen while there, so if you've any ideas ?
    You should know that I never wave !!!!

    Salut! le Gers? C'est juste à côté de chez moi ça!

    Welcome aboard from a neighbour! Where about in the Gers? My sister lives next to it, in Rieumes Haute Garonne.

    You should come to the French meet at Twin Lakes (see in the rally section of the site)
    Safe travels...

    Amicalement

    Frankie:)

    Hello and Welcome to Fun.

    Nice part of the world you live in. I used to live in Haute Garonne, then Dordogne.

    Welcome to the Fun Tom. May I suggest you look at prices your side of the Channel first. If it's cheaper here I'll eat the tread off one of your old tyres.;)
