    Hi everyone. I'm about to enter the world of motorhoming - and will be solo full-timing so feeling nervous but exhilarated. Have decided to go for a middle-aged Burstner 821. I know there's a steep learning curve ahead of me but, hey, I enjoy a challenge! Have learnt a lot from reading these forums but new questions keep springing to mind. Look forward to chatting to you all.

    The nervousness should go away, the exhilaration shouldn't. I switch off completely when we get away.

    Welcome to the fun.

    Welcome Maz,
    What a great choice of van. Lovely bits of kit, especially for living in.

    However you can't come on here and just tell us your going fulltiming and expect to get away with it.

    We being nosy funsters want to know the following.


    WHERE YOU GOING???

    WHAT YOU GOING TO SEE?

    HAVE YOU ANY EXPERIENCE?

    also, don't forget to join the fulltimers & Single travellers forum on here. PM Jim for details of how to,

    Look forward to hearing about your travels.

    Hi and thank you for your welcome. :Smile:

    Re the first two questions:

    I'll be travelling around the UK (at least until I get used to driving The Beastie, then I'll probably want to venture abroad in it), and I hope to see as much as possible! I'm keen on wildlife and walking, and looking forward to exploring new areas. Change of circumstances has led me into full-timing - reckoned I could either be miserable in a bedsit and working a checkout, or happy doing my own thing in a motorhome. No contest! :BigGrin:

    No experience of motorhoming as such, though I did live (happily) in a caravan a while back. So far my motorhome experience consists of taking The Beastie out for a good half-hour's test drive on all kinds of roads. Had never driven anything that size before but seemed to get the hang of it fairly quickly. At least there was no screaming from the passengers! :Wink:

    OK you're doing Uk first but once you got used to your beastie then have a good fun on the other side of the road and come down to Toulouse.... you might find a nice cuppa at the end of that driving test :Wink::BigGrin:
