    I've always been compliant so having been advised to introduce myself here goes!

    After caravanning for a few years I got increasingly irritated by all the palava hitching, towing and setting up, not to mention the awning - grrrr! So after some considerable deliberation we ditched our very comfortable Eriba Troll for a Swift Mondial. We took to motor homing like a duck to water and went to Paris for Christmas on only our second trip out in it. We missed the luxury of a ready made bed and a year ago on a deal not to be missed - part ex'd for more than we paid for it two years earlier we bought the Autotrail Cherokee which is just the business.

    We often are away at weekends and this summer took a lazy drive through France staying very economically at Aires and then arriving in Sitges, Spain 5 days after we'd set off. Enjoyed a week in Spain and then meandered back. Living 3 miles from Newhaven is great and the extra cost of ferry crossings from there compared to Dover is offset by reduced fuel costs and the convenience of setting out 10 mins before we need to be at the terminal!

    So hello fellow motorhomers I look forwards to enjoying the forum community.

    Regards

    John
