    Hello everyone :)

    Decided to sign up here after discovering that a certain other forum wants € from me to continue!

    I'm an English bloke living in Netherlands with my girlfriend having moved here from Germany.

    We have a 1999 Knaus Traveller on a Ducato 2.8 id TD. Currently showing 86,000km - bought last August with 75,000 so we're doing alright so far.

    There have been a 'few' problems with it, most recent is a loss of 5th gear which I am researching and will record on this forum for future generations to admire.

    I'm building a list of modifications in my head to improve the general comfort and ease of use of the motorhome, so will probably be around here for a while asking questions and showing what I've changed etc.

    Cheers for now :)

    Cheers for the welcomes! :)

    Despite my first post saying that I came here after finding a certain other forum charges to be a member, I just discovered ... it's the same here!

    I'm a member of loads of car forums and have never experienced this concept before! I suppose it keeps the plebs away and pays for hosting etc. but is a tricky idea to get used to.

    Anyway, I jumped into my Paypal account and joined up. So I'm now an official non-pleb member (with a broken 5th gear) and hope to enjoy this forum for quite a while longer :thumb:

    Hi Brisey,

    If I think about the subscription cost versus the cost of buying, running and maintaining the MH, it is such a teeny tiny amount it's not even worth thinking twice about!! :Rofl1: Although we only had it 11 months, it has cost a bomb. But we love it and it is worth (Almost!) every penny/cent.

    Hello and welcome from a fellow newbie yet to take delivery of our first motorhome. I'm sure we will find plenty of value here to more than cover the small subscription. :BigGrin:

    Hope you continue to enjoy your travels even missing a fifth gear :thumb:

    Thanks for the welcome :)

    Are you looking to buy new? If not - take this tip from someone who found out the hard way and get a full inspection done by an expert. You might save yourself a huge amount of cash in the long run...! (More on that story at a later date)
