    Hi All

    Over a drink, the question was posed, how many female only motorhomers there are?

    So far the count is 4 that we can think of.

    Add Cal54, Bronte and Trixie to the list, all at Malvern but one of us is in the general camping area as booked too late.

    Please add me to the list.

    If you'd asked me three months ago if I would ever be a solo traveller I would have laughed. I'm not laughing now. Well, I am, but… :)

    I'm curious as to why you want to know - are you one?? 'We' in your post would seem to indicate not...

    I'm on my own, apart from dogs :) and Yodeli travels around inMax on her own. Never found a problem apart from it would have been useful yo have someone in the passenger seat in UK in a LHD.

    Yes, we definitely are one of "them" - assuming your mean female that is :)

    The question came about as we were discussing a rather unfortunate incident from the night before, when one of the male members acted in a quite inappropriate manner. Sadly, this wasn't the only occasion in the short time we were there. The discussion led to the suggestion of having a female only rally. This would be open to any female regardless of anything other than they had a motorhome and were female. One of the things that was also discussed is that single women have felt ignored by female partners of binary couples, once it was realised that they were on their own.

    We just wanted to open it up for discussion and to see if there was any mileage in suggesting such a rally.

    I havent been to many rallies so far but I can say Ive never felt ignored by anyone regardless of gender. I usually find if you make the effort to chat then most will chat back.

    I have had the experience of being ignored by female partners but NOT at a funsters rally. It has happened at 3 different sites and I am an outgoing person who makes the effort to talk to anybody and everybody. Not really been able to work out why this should be the case but I also know of other solo women who have experienced the same - won't stop me from continuing to speak to people though !:D

    I would be interested in attending a rally @LumpyandBumpy (y)
