    hi welcome. get out and stay a couple of nights on site, take a pen and a note pad..... as you realise what you have not got or need make a note for next time, after a few trips you'll be sorted (y)( and probably overloaded :( )

    Always take a pen & notepad! As always adding or changing something!

    As above, it takes a while to work out what you need and I think just as importantly what you don't need, as many motorhomes have fairly restricted payloads.

    But of course - Welcome!

    Just get out there and use it. A few days at a local campsite, ideally one near a shop then off you go. And living near the channel you just know you want to hop over there!

    We have an A4 nobo white board fixed on our door, as stitches n fluff said we always have things to add every time we go away.
    I use it to add jobs that I find each time I go away.

    Hi Sharon, Welcome to Fun. :)
    Good advice from Phill, I'm assuming that you got Hymer from Dealer ? so at least you may have had explanations of what switch does what;

    look for a local campsite, for first trip, hook up and relax; Come back to us with any questions.............we ALL started at some time, and most of us are still learning, :D loads of knowlegable folk on here. (If you havn't found it yet, there is a Hymer section (motorhome specific makes).

    Enjoy Fun, maybe's see you about. (y)

    Andy (1989 Hymer 644)

    Hi Sharon, I know it may sound a bit daft but if possible just try staying on your drive for a night just to get the feel of things.
    Oh and welcome to the fun. :welc:
