    Have a great time in the new m/h. We are new to this as well and reckon we're going to love it. By the way don't go abroad without a registration document, we've been told the m/h can be confiscated.

    Hello, welcome. This site is rather addictive:BigGrin:
    We are new to Motor homing too. Dec 09.
    We px'd the caravan but kept our NissanTerrano. Soooo glad we did , with this weather!! No problems whats so ever:thumb:
    Ralph's a self employed builder. He hasn't been able to get his pick up off the street. Too front heavy, so hes been using the terrano.
    Good job hes got a few weeks work inside , local , to do.
    Its actually made us rethink the idea of getting another smaller car now we don't tow a caravan.
    We'll see.
    Bev

    Welcome to the friendliest Motorhome site on the web :BigGrin:
    Differences between caravanning and motorcaravanning:
    Get your supermarket shop done BEFORE you get to your aimed-for site; now you are in a motorcaravan, you can't just jump into the car and pop along the road!

    Enjoy yourselves :Laughing:

    Hi Allie
    I must have heard this at least 20 times over the new year on a rally with our group , all caravaner's.
    "what if you run out of bread or milk??"
    I got fed up of replying.
    The fridge and freezer are twice as big as was on our caravan , and we have more storage space for an esky in the garage.
    Plus we've got fiamma racks on the back for the bikes, which we never had before .
    But it is a downside , but a small one!:BigGrin:

    Quite right!
    The advantages FAR outweigh the disadvantages don't they?
    Just a bit of forward planning goes a long way ... :Smile:
