    Hello everyone,Sue and I would like to introduce ourselves. We have wanted a motorhome for some time and as Sue has just retired from the NHS (early) now is right for us. Bought an Elnagh 4 berth second hand with a high spec as we want to use it all year round. First Trip this weekend to Sandringham to test everythig provided there is no more snow. We are really excited and hope to meet some of you in the future. we both think this is a very useful site. Steve and Sue from Derby:BigGrin::Smile:

    Hi and welcome Steve and Sue.

    Whilst the rest of us are worrying...did we put the (special m/h non toxic)antifreeze in our water systems, did we repair the leaky roof...will the tvs surivive in the damp or should we bring em indoors, did we empty the onboard water hoze so it dont expand and break and we discover that mistake when we arrive abroad and the hoze leaks...did we lay up the motor vehicle side up right for the winter, and the trickle battery chargers working, did we take the water outta the water heater,...whats Steve and Sue doing....they are off camping....

    inspirational..way to go.

    Have fun and I hope the roads are clear of snow but still plenty left onsite for ya to lob at each other....then a glass of warm mead when ya get back in da van snuggled up infront of a nice log fire...(downloadable log fire burning that ya play on ya tv)

    welcome!

    Please be careful with your water and waste tanks if your planning to use your van at this
    time of year.As freezing up is a high possibility at the moment. Make sure you have at least
    five litres of water in a container inside van, so you are at least able to make a warm drink if the worst happens. Also make sure you have lots of gas for cooking and Heating.
    Hope you enjoy your trip.:thumb:

    Regards
    Steve

    If away in sub zero temperatures (as I have just been) I empty the waste water tank daily, as if it freezes up overnight when full you will have to wait for summer for it to thaw. I empty it just after washing up from breakfast as it then has nice warm shower water + washing up in it so even if the little bit in it overnight froze, then it will be melted.
    I used to use the idea of just leaving the drain tap open and collecting it in a bucket, but when I did that in Scotland one year there was a pile of bucket shaped icecubes at the emptying point:Laughing:

    Hi just joined & never had a motorhome before so lots of questions and a lot of learning to do. Looking at an Elnagh Marlin 59 x 2001 with 22,000 miles rear kitchen at £13,500. Any views greatly appreciated.
    My wife & I are just retired and looking to use a motorhome 5-6 months a year. Just us and sometimes family or just grandkids.

    Newbie Beagleboy.

    Hi we are Beagleboy - Tony, Denise & Harry the beagle, semi-retired, just joined & looking for advice on motorhoming. We have never owned a motorhome so there is a lot we do not know. We intend using a motorhome 5-6 months a year for short breaks around the UK with & without kids & grandkids.
    We are ready to jump in and make a start. Think we prefer a rear bedroom but just noticed an Elnagh Marlin 59 2001, 22,000 miles rear kitchen asking £13,500 ?
    Any advice or words of wisdom appreciated on this model and/or layouts.
