    Hello everyone!
    For the past 20 years we've been trying our hand at various forms of camping.
    Starting off with a tent, as many seem to, we've had an Autosleepers High top van, Dandy folding camper, and for the last 5 years a Swift caravan.

    I must confess that I'm not too enamoured with towing a large white sail around Europe although the van itself is very comfy and our little dog seems to love the lifestyle!

    We had a look at a Swift Sundance at a dealer yesterday who gave us a generous px deal on our van (we bought it from them) and we're now mugging up about motorhoming on various websites.

    I'm really pleased that I found this site, seems very informative and friendly.

    Hello and welcome. You are certainly right about one thing, this site will give you access to all the help you could possibly need. You only have to ask. There's always someone knowledgable with the answer.:thumb:

    Thanks for the welcome.
    Well, we've done it. Went to the dealers today and put a deposit on a new Swift Sundance 582PR.
    Wont collect it until the beginning of September so we'll have the new registration, that'll be a first for us!

    Hi Mack
    & :welcomefunster:

    Hope all goes well with the new van.
    You are spending a lot of cash so make sure the dealer does and documents all the initial ckecks properly.
    I feel sure if you have any doubts someone local in the club, will help you.

    Good Luck

    Out of interest which Hampton? Hampton- lock. Hampton-Lucy, Or Hampton near Southampton?

    Hello and welcome to fun, once you have your van you will wonder why you waited so long, a great way of life, keep reading and researching the forum lots of information.

    One of the best investments you can make is the £10 fee with that you will get funster discounts, money off at motorhome shows, you can join the funsters on rally's and lots more.

    Enjoy :welcomefunster:

    Sorry, just seen this post, how rude of me!
    We've bought two caravans from this dealer already so they know who they're dealing with :BigGrin:
    We live in Hampton West London which is near Hampton Court.
