    It's nice to see more middle aged and younger people getting into the motorhome scene.It always had that stigma of retired and loaded attached to it, wish I was retired and loaded. Only another 20+ years to go:Rofl1::Rofl1:
    How many do we have on here in that age bracket??

    Had a motorhome before my 40s... and up until I retired ..

    can't afford one now. Being retired aint what it's cracked up to be... , so enjoy while you can and don't rush to the finish line.

    Very good Mike. Surveying a new fit on a Burstner this Sunday, probably same panels as yours £39 cheaper each now :Eeek:
    Doing shopfitting full time now self employed mainly WHSmiths stores so struggling for time for anyone else.
    Fitting Dunlop airsuspension to mine tomorrow in the freezing cold, I'll be doing a blog with photos for general circulation.
    Many thanks for the feedback :thumb: not long now before they really come into their own and hook up free living.

    Yeah good luck Andy hope it all works out for you. We had an interview with the caravan club. After working out our finances, found out that it wasn't really viable:cry: but that would have been our first intro to full timing. Maybe later on who knows.
