    Picking up my van this week sometime...I have been coerced into buying it by some really old people and my wife.
    I think I am too young for one, but needs must:Eeek:

    I feel it will be an interesting adventure, having used a motorcycle to go camping with all over Europe....I guess I will be lost in a Hymer 544.

    Looking forward to not having to blow up beds, stake out tents etc. to be honest.

    HGV 1 driver sometimes, so the vehicle should be manageable.....Just need to watch out for the low bridges, it`s always 'professional' drivers who manage to hit them:Rofl1:

    Forgot....Did Morocco in our 4X4 in 2008, wild camping in a tent....That was good experience!

    I notice you don't say how old you are so that we can judge whether you are too young :Rofl1:

    Welcome to the fun anyway

    Are you allowed to go above 50mph in these things?
    Looks like I am picking the wobblybox up on Fri/Sat.
    Apologies if anyone finds my references offensive, I am just having a bit of a laugh, it seems to make the ownership process a tad easier:Laughing:

    One day, we were in our 60s, seriously wet, miserable. We decided we were too olf for 2 wheels. Every dealer we visited on 2 wheels had another bike looking. 6 years on we've done more on 4 wheels than we could on 2. But, by comparison, it's as boring as hell.

    Good job we've still got 2 wheels, did Bruges last year. Modest by our standards but it proved we were still alive.

    Are you INSANE ?

    It has been proved that the human body cannot stand speeds above 30 mph and half that for menstruating women.

    Greetings old person.You dont have to be old to own a M/H as I have proved. Us youngsters welcome all age groups.:BigGrin:.
    There is one big advantage over bikes, its much easier to light yer pipe in a van and you can drive in yer slippers:BigGrin:

    I have read that the Spanish can fine you for driving in inappropriate footwear.

    And if you are towing an A-frame at the same time they shoot you on the spot.
