    Good morning all:)

    I have just joined this forum, found during a search - I had no idea it existed, but I'm hoping to learn, and share experiences here.

    I'm 57, and have been motorcaravanning for over 30 years.

    My first van was a 'Cambridge', a conversion based on the Mk 1 transit. My second was a 1982 Autotrail Cheyene, based, believe it or not, on a Peugeot 504 pickup!! I then used a VW Trooper for around 10 years, which was superb, and reached just about ever corner of Europe. We now have a 06 Hobby 600 which is certainly the best, and probably the last motorhome we will own.

    We are both retired, and have the freedom to go away on a whim, which is extremely satisfying.

    Doug
