    I will introduce ourselves, as my husband is watching TV!!!
    I'm Debs and the husband is John. We are 1st time owners of a motorhome and to be honest, we haven't got a clue what we're doing. Just got a Benimar Aereo 6000 reg 2005 and we're brickin it!! Don't get the 12 volt thing and inverters, batteries, solar etc but we
    are middle aged!!

    We were complete newbies last September too - now we feel loads more confident, partly thanks to Fun, and partly because there's nothing like getting a bit of experience under your belt.

    You'll get all the advice you need here, just take it slowly and if you feel overwhelmed just stop somewhere and make a cuppa.

    You'll love it!

    Hi and Welcome.
    I had the same motorhome as you, a couple of years older. Got on fine with it, even the RHD in UK

    Ask any questions---always plenty of people in the know.

    Hello and welcome, have been motorhoming for a while. You never stop learning, and a sense of humour helps when the going gets tough.

    Hi and welcome to the forum, the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

    Hi, welcome and you are definitely in the right place. Debs and I got our MoHo around 8 weekes ago, but got so much good advice from here before and still do now. We are currently in Spain and Portugal till Oct, our confidence growing daily. We are middle aged too, (56). Enjoy.:welc:

    Hello from us two too:cheers: You'll get used to it. Get away in it somewhere. Make sure you have Internet access. Then if you get stuck, post on here, someone will be able to help you. I'm sure.
    We're not so far away in Wakefield. Quite a few members in Yorkshire.

    Hi, we're new too! Bought our first MH a couple of weeks ago. This forum is a great resource - we've learned a lot from it.
