    Hi, New to motorhomes and collecting our 1999 Transit based Herald Valencia on Monday

    Had a couple of caravans in the 90s but I hated towing

    My work means i can't take long breaks or book holidays much more than a few days in advance. We also have a Rottvei... Rotwiel.... Chihuahua and so a motorhome seems ideal for us

    If anyone has any tips or advice it'd be highly appreciated!

    Hi there, we're new(ish) too. All I can say is try a couple of nights close to home to find out what works for you, what you'll need etc.

    And Have Fun.:BigGrin:

    Hi Bolly, welcome to the Fun :thumb:

    Best tip is to live in it for a couple days even if its on your drive, you'll soon get to know it inside out. There might be things you don't understand so as soon as you have a question, log in here and get in answered double quick:thumb:
