    Hi everybody :)!

    My name is Martin, I'm 38 and I live in Alsace (France).
    I had a toyota hiace, and now I am trying to convert a renault trafic that you can see here :
    http://martin-emilie-leonie.eklablog.com/notre-trafic-amenage-a118378920

    I like to travel and hike with my wife and 2 year old daughter and a half.

    We are planning a trip to the UK this spring(y).
    No route defined yet.
    So I registered on this forum to interact with you about that.
    Thank you, sorry for my practice of english :confused: .
    See you soon

    Hi Martin,
    Good job on the conversion. If your UK trip takes you to the South coast, let me know. We will show you the South Downs - pleasant hiking!

    Très malin!
    You can also check out a little free forum called smallmotorhome.co.uk. There are quite a few people there who have built their own and possibly have good advice for camping in the UK in them. We have two big camping clubs here with a great many 'terrain de campings' all over the UK - the Caravan Club and the Camping and Caravanning club. There are a lot of rules around home-built vans - not nearly as relaxed here as on the continent. That said, there are many private sites who would welcome you.
    Good luck and welcome to Fun!

    Bonjour et bienvenue.
    Your English is brilliant--- don't worry about it, France and the French people are much loved by motorhomers and you're all very much in my thoughts at the moment.

    Salut l'Alsace.... ça fart? (sorry if it offends anyone , but that's the way we say it here, since "Brice de Nice" lol)

    J'ai pas été (encore)voir le lien, mais j'irai dès que j'aurai fini ce post! (au fait j'imagine que ta fille a 2 ans et demi... et non que tu as 1 fille et demie... clin d'oeil bein sûr, un chti peu d'entrainement, jte parie que ça viendra comme qui rigole!)

    Anyway, let's say it all in English... welcome to FUN, you'll soon have the hang of it, and be totally addictive!
    Meanwhile happy travels, I'm sure you'll get lots of tips and tricks to plan your trip to the UK !

    Amicalement
