    Hi People,
    My wife & I are newcomers to the world of motorhoming.
    We purchased a Swift Sundance 630L back in October '06. It was primarily for me to use for work at different locations around the uk(instead of staying in digs) and we planned to do various weekends away with our 4 year old daughter.
    I was very happy with it for the 7 weeks that it was in my possession! Unfortunately, thieves took a liking to it and it was stolen whilst I was at work. Insurance Co. paid up but we were both gutted. How can people be so callous?
    Anyway, fast forward to 2014 and we're ready to take the plunge again. We still like the layout of the Swift 630L/ E495(Bessacarr) but I'm also looking at the Autotrail Chieftain.
    Speaking of which, I've found an '06 model with 11k miles for just under £30k (good price??)
    Being a truck driver, I'm rather keen on the longer,6 wheel van as i think they look better & I've been informed that they ride better.
    I'm sure we'll have lots more questions to ask, very glad we joined.
    Cheers,
    Daz & Lisa.

    Hi Funsters,
    Many thanks for all the welcome notes.
    Still exploring this site at the moment. Also,I rang a garage today that was advertising an AT Chieftain, alas, it was sold so gotta keep looking.
    We're hoping to acquire one in the next month or so?
    I think our first outing will probably be to Kielder Water? We're also very keen on exploring the Highlands(Inverness & Isle of Skye) I was working up at Inverness for a month 4 years ago and my wife and daughter joined me on my last weekend, fabulous part of the world.
    Cheers for now
    Daz

    Hi and welcome from us. Howie is a Geordie too being from The Felling.

    Hope you get sorted out soon and get away on your travels. Kielder is very nice but be warned - the midges are very vicious up there. There are lots of nice places to stay within an hour of Tyneside which is ideal for a first trip out to check all is working in your motorhome.

    Kath and Howie
