    Hello to all

    Pick up our first motothome next week.......a 3ltr Auto Autotrail
    Seemed to tick all the boxes as we have been looking at MHs for months now and have been in loads and driven a few.

    Wanted an auto and there are not too many around compared with the manuals....................been a caravanner for some years and decided the only way to find out if we would enjoy motorhomes was to get one.

    Still you are only young once ...and that was a long time ago :)

    get ready to be set apon with a lot of questions

    That should be an interesting exercise. You've traded space for convenience of moving on but lost ( probably ) a run-around when you get there.

    You should be able to write and interesting comparison in a few months.

    Hi Barry
    Welcome to MH Fun
    :welcomefunster:
    Hope you will be able to get the grin off your faces after picking up van, it normally takes quite a while. Then there's tea in van in front garden, boy what a lot to look forward to, without even moving.

    Best of luck

    Hello and welcome to motorhome fun, bet you are rareing to go, will you carry bikes when you are touring with your motorhome a great way of looking around without moveing the van each time. Have you thought of going to one of the Motorhome shows, Motorhome Fun have some excellent rallys at the shows well worth thinking about. enjoy.:welcomefunster:

    Pics will have to wait as I pick it up next week.

    its a 2009 Cherokee ( I think ) Low mileage.........about 8500 miles on a fiat
    its got the 3 litre auto ..which I just loved driving....and its like new.
    a very large garage.......fixed tranverse double over the garage
    and two small sofas facing each other which make another double ( so a double bed each !!!! )
    and no bed over the cab just storage. Various bells and whistles most of which I have forgotten

    perhaps someone will tell me what it is :)

    This config is what we were looking for for some time.....based on our caravan experience it should suit our needs

    thanks for the welcome :)
