    Hi,

    We are hoping to get our first motorhome this year having done the usual caravanning thing over a 10 year period. Bit disappointed to realise that damp problems can also afflict some motorhomes. Do poor road surfaces play a part in rattling the silkaflex joint seals?

    Our price range of about £25,000 looks likely to involve a 3 or 4 berth Hymer or Dethleffs. A fixed French bed layout with a reasonable lounge for us both to relax in would be great.

    We aren't in a rush as such, presumably the summer isn't the best time to buy?

    Cheers
    donnieban

    Hello & welcome. Yes I often feel that its poor road surfaces to blame for at least some of the problems of water ingress on seals of motorhomes & caravans. Still its worth it for the freedom that a motorhome gives you, especially in your neck of the woods. Sometimes we don't need to go far to enjoy a chilled out break.

    Do you ever come down to the Perth area? I was looking on Gumtree at a few from this shop what had lots of nice vans in your price range

    Yes, had a look in at Scotmotorhomes and Dicksons. Nice stock but nothing really in budget.

    Skye has had the very best of weather over the last 2 months or so but tonight its rather wet n windy sadly.

    Feeling more than a little bit sorry for all the good folks heading to Skye. Our weather which was the best in the country has reverted back to normal sadly. Wet with a touch of very wet at times!
