    Hi to you all

    Well a new chapter in our lives has started, both now retired, so looking to invest in a motorhome for our future travels. Hopefully this forum will be a mine of information.

    Hi djw

    Welcome to FUN.

    Start asking, the answers will come flooding in.

    Have you made a shortlist, the spec/layout you want will lead you on to a shortlist of vans and then the really confusing bit start when you try to choose the one.

    Welcome :-D

    Having just been through the first-timers nightmare - the selection and purchasing process - I know how confusing it is at first. But stick with it as there is nothing like the buzz from putting the 'Sold' sticker on your own motorhome.

    Make sure you try as many as you can, to get the right layout for yous. also be aware of the Motorhomes Payload to make sure you have enough weight left to put your own belongings into, as so many motorhomes leave way to little payload.

    well been out looking again today, talked to a few people who were also looking, tips from them welcomed, but a seed of change has been sewn, so home to rethink what we need. :(:rolleyes:

    Take your time.
    We bought a Savannah but are looking to change to an Apache 634U for a bigger living space.
    The single beds were nice but living quarters cramped.
    Happy Motorhoming.
