    Hi we are Andrew and Jacqui (well she is fast asleep atm), and have been viewing motorhomefun for a little time now.

    We have an old creaky, unreliable but loads of fun compass drifter(crystal) , which we bought to see if we would like the lifestyle or would such close proximity to each other = divorce.

    It hasn't and to cut a long storey short, the plan is to leave the rat race sort of behind in 18 months time and travel Europe in a motorhome for the majority of the year, do a couple of months locum work July/August each year to top up the funds. We hope to be able to do this for a number of years. Rent the house out and not tell the kids where we're going.

    So will be buying a newish lhd motorhome next year and planning, so will be a veritable sponge absorbing as much info to help us and at some stage hopefully be able to reciprocate with helpfully advice.

    Hello and welcome. Sounds like you have a great plan. Similar to ours except we spent too much money in our first year so I have had to send Colin back out to work for a couple of months. (y)

    :welc:That really is a plan........ not unlike Armytwowheels a couple of years ago and they've pulled it off. Now Andrew could I respectfully suggest that you wake Jacqui gently and inform her of her plans so that she can take some of the credit too!

    Huge welcome, join us all on one or two meets before choosing your "ideal" layout, it could save you a fortune..... Griff

    ps . Love the handle but feel you really should explain why......

    Thanks everyone for your warm welcome, will definitely get to some meets and am especially keen for advice from armytwowheels choose post I recently followed regarding importing a van from Germany, and others who have done likewise.
