    Hi All,

    bought our first Camping car (Motorhome) this week, very excited as it will allow us to get out with our dog 'Havana' into the French countryside around where we live. Although I worked at Avondale coachcraft in the 70's as a craftsman, and built custom Horse lorries up until we moved to France in 2008, I feel very much a 'Newbie' with our little Motorhome.

    Our pride and joy is 1999 Ducato with a Moncayo body without a luton,(called a profile in France) it is a two berth, and very short, 5.1 metres, which is great as we have a narrow access to our drive on a steep hill.

    Having read the forum threads I feel that this friendly community will be a benefit to enjoying our future adventures.

    Hi welcome John!:welcomefunster:

    Moncayo is a rare marque over here in Blighty, I reckon it must make you the forum's resident expert now!:BigGrin:

    We hope you feel at home here and can decipher some sense from this madness!:thumb:
