    Well I am new to Motorhomes, Used to caravan,been looking around and thought it time I should contribute.

    After looking around for 6 months, today 7th Dec 2008 we are off on the train to Exeter too pick up our first Motorhome, We finally decided on a Autosleeper Sussex.

    Our plan is to drive to Plymouth and spend our first night there.

    I'm Peter aged 60 and I suffer with Parkinsons Disease, my wife is Lorna, will let you know how we get on

    Hi Peter and Lorna, You caravan experience will stand you in good stead as many of the onboard systems will be similar. If you do have questions pop back here, the funsters are knowledgeable and very friendly as well.

    Welcome to the fun and enjoy that first trip. :thumb:

    Hi Peter and Lorna, you don't say in your profile but am guessing you are a Devon based couple, welcome to the fun, Following Plymouth how about a tour of Devon and cornwall, nice and quiet at this time of year. enjoy your new van and look forward to welcoming you in the chatroom at some stage.

    New too

    Hi Peter and Lorna,
    I am new to motorhoming too. It is great. Disabled as a result of surgery some years ago and unable to get out much. Motorhome has changed that. THe onboard facilities provide me with the confidence to get away. We have spent a few nights away now a couple of times. Our model has fixed beds so easy to stop and lie down for a wee while. Planning and almost booked our holidays in France next year. That's two ferry crossings for us here in Northern Ireland.
    Enjoy your motorhome, we have, it is just brill.
    Regards, Wee John

    Hello Peter & Lorna,

    I caravanned for a long time before getting a motorhome this year, never looked back. Got 7000 miles on the clock already. The only annoying thing is seeing the van sitting on the drive when we can't get away because of other obligations, like right now. We can't get away this month at all!

    You'll have a great time.
