    As the title says, I just brought our first MH home this morning, a 2003 Suntor 630G.

    At this stage I'm not feeling any different, I still think I'm too young, cool and interesting to have a motorhome. When does it all change? :Rofl1:

    Didn't you realise? Having a Motorhome MAKES you young, cool and interesting. Welcome to the Forum, sure you will have many happy outings.

    Hi and well done on your purchase hope all goes well.

    As for being to young and cool for a motorhome well that depends what age you are and how cool you think you are:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    You are right.

    You are too young for this game.

    Never mind.

    We'll soon have you all grumpy and moaning about Tescos!

    Welcome to Fun.

    JJ :Cool:


    I suggest you just lash a surf board to your roof... that will retain you some street cred.

    When does it all change?

    When you haven't got the strength to blow out all the candles on your Birthday Cake - after 10 attempts!

    Hi Xan, and welcome.

    We are new around here too but loving it so far. I think I feel younger than when we started so it might just do ya good lol

    We went for a Suntor 590 pr and have found it excellent so you may have made a good choice in your van,

    Happy camping

    Andy

    Ps duct tape, cable ties and foam, there :Rofl1:

    Blimey. This mh lark is like buying a house. I've spent all day thinking "I didn't notice" various imperfections.

    Been sorting thru the left over contents of our long gone VW T4 surf bus for useful items, and cleaning. Next job, going round all the bits that show a bit of corrosion with ACF-50. I'm sure the bikers amongst you will know that stuff.

    Oh yes. We know about that on here. Some of our number are absolute experts in Motorbikes. Then we have the Electrickery experts and the Compooter experts and the Magician, plus of course we have our own Froggie (who is actually a Princess) and all the artists. Piss and otherwise. Oh - and a Mental Health Specialist Nurse (who enters events like Hell oop North to prove that your job does not affect your way of life) for when it all drives you mad.

    Where else could you find all that in one place, without moving off your bum and only for a tenner in this day and age?

    However, if having slightly embarrassing incidents what you have perpetrated pointed out to you tends to upset you, you may find you have joined the wrong forum ..... :Rofl1:


    In fact you've got away quite lightly with that - you're lucky there wasn't a video of it posted on You Tube .....
