    Even though I am getting loads of interference to change to a motorhome
    At present we have a Nissan X-Trail and a Bailey Pageant Caravan and are at Twin Lakes (again been coming here since 2007) We have been friends with a certain JAG member of this group and are having great fun with your members

    OK I was a Trained Nurse but retired due to ill health
    I am a photographer note the icon I made for myself and I go Fishing nature watching (a lot of insects) and I love trains

    My Wife Stephanie wants us to convert to a motorhome for lots of reasons not least because she would be able to drive for a while as she does not tow and is not comfortable towing



    So watch this space and we will see what happens

    Hi & :pink:

    We'd been caravanners for 20 odd years and I never towed, husband wasn't very comfy with it either. We xhanged to a motorhome 2 years ago and wish we'd done it sooner. It's brill! :D

    Only problem we have now is arguing who's going to drive :LOL:

    Go for it......:)

    I am looking with SWMBO (and yes she CAN see this) there are things I need such as payload for my mobility scooter - I know there is one out there but until I solve my doubts I am reserving judgement

    I am looking at alternatives to mobility scooters such as electric tricycles - maybe build one myself with a conversion kit

    so not saying NO!!!!!!!!!!! just not yet

    Stephanie retires after too many years at a supermarket and so her pensions are all due so we will be looking to buy cash already been offered 5K for caravan so quite happy

    AND
    We are at the Motorhome Show at the NEC next month for two days to further tweak our search
