    Hi folks, I am a solo motorhomer and travel with my two x-collie dogs. I am comparatively new to motorhomes having purchased mine in August last year. I was a caravanner for 25 years until my beloved wife Vanda sadly passed away in May. After a number of outings in the van I decided that a motorhome would be the way forward and possibly an easier option than the caravan for myself and the dogs. I have enjoyed my outings on the "dark side" and I am looking forward to the future in this new version of the outdoor life.

    Hi & welcome to the forum.....:)

    We're ex-caravanners too and swopped to a mh last September and haven't looked back.

    You have some lovely areas in Staffs...

    Hope you have some good adventures (y)

    Welcome! They do organise rallies here, one on at the moment at Newark I believe. Any of these rallies would be a good opportunity to meet new friends. Dogs welcome too!
