    Just like to say hi to everyone. Not a motorhomer just yet, picking up our Swift Escape in a couple of weeks time. We've owned caravans for many years so moving over to the dark side.... hopefully the right move. I'm all for it but the wife is 50/50 so we'll see.

    Welcome! The only advice I can give is not to try to be too much like a caravanner. So don't worry about buying drive-away awnings just yet or think you need to tow a car so you can get around like you did when you used to tow your engine-less motorhome. You may find you need these things but most don't and for us the pleasure of motorhoming is not being cluttered with lots of "stuff".

    Welcome Dave from Wales from Pamela and Derek in Norfolk. Initial thoughts on changing from caravan to motorhome - suddenly there's no car alongside to take the overspill, like garden chairs and table!! The best thing is that when you stop in a lay-by for a cuppa, you don't have to go out in the rain (and it doesn't wobble). Hope it works out for you. (n)
