    :hiya2::welcome4:You'll find it really useful and if you join up and pay subs you'll get more than good value for money, take a look on the classifieds there are Motorhomes for sale and most members on here look after their vans and offer them to members first pretty much all at good prices.Here's one I picked at random from adds.
    FOR SALE Hymer B594 , High Spec in great condition, only 70k miles

    Hi There and......................:welcome4:

    We are newbies like you, I am picking up the MH in the avatar picture on the left after researching for the last few months. Looking at dealers. Visiting Stafford show was such an eye opener and the number of MS to have a good look at for layout. If you can get to a show, you will learn a lot. So much info on these forums with such good advice. I think we have got ours right, I can tell you for sure next Tuesday after the first night staying in it.

    Hi and :welcome3:.

    Layout, layout and then layout! Take every chance you can get to look at as many vans as possible; shows are ideal but visit some of the larger dealers. Sit in them, lie on the beds, imagine yourselves living in the van when it's pouring with rain. Don't just go for the first one you see, even if it is a "bargain" - if it ain't right it's no longer a bargain.

    Got any questions, ask away. Meanwhile we look forward to seeing you at one or more meets and rallyes.

    thank you everyone for you lovely comments, we are planning on attending some MH shows, plus visit MH dealers etc, also look on sale sites and go and view, seat in , etc just to see whats best for us... i guess the biggest thing for us is what make and model, and reliability.. what MPG, etc. we are also looking forward to getting our MH and meeting up with other MH owners and rallies, thanks everyone
