    Hi Ian & Kath,

    Welcome to FUN. We were tuggers for 16 years, before going over to a MH.................and not looked back since. We just wish we could have done it sooner.
    We are looking forward to the days when we can get down to Spain & Portugal over the winter months.

    Cheers for now,

    Jock & Rita. :)

    What MH have you got Ian? Many of us are driving 8/9mtr Tandem axled MHs, or larger ARVs
    Ours is LHD, which I collected from Torquay 10 years ago. That was an experience I'd not had before. If you've got previous experience with large vehicles, it'll all come back very quickly. (y)

    Cheers,

    Jock. :)

    Welcome to the fun, you won't regret getting a m/h , we have just returned on Sunday from our first wintering there for over 8 months and can't wait to return, we were 3 months in Spain and over 3 months in Portugal and the rest in France, defo cheaper in Portugal than in the UK , we can't wait to get back

    Take time and enjoy the trip ...it is fantastic

    John, Kath and L'il Tom
    Ps have you seen the meet at Southport as there will be a lot of other RV's there also ?
