    Hi, I'm new to this, in fact not there yet! I'm trying to persuade my OH that a motor home is what we want. Any ideas how I should do this? We are retired and restricted to short breaks as we can't take the garden and animals away with us. To me a motor home is the answer, no need to plan and book ahead, try telling him that?

    I am sure more knowledgeable folk will be along in a min to advise you but.....

    Why cant you take the animals with you LOL There are all sort of animals travelling in the uk in m/h's , recently at Wrenbury meet we had a sunday morn walk, 22 dogs and 1 macaw no probs, also back at the site there were at least 2 cats ... now the garden is a diff matter.... good neighbours or just dont plant so much as i have done this year



    Once he has tried it there will be more trips to follow..... perhaps you could hire a m/h for a w/e to sample?


    Good luck changing his mind !

    easy.....get him to have a browse around this fantastic fun forum.

    It'll give him some idea of the enormous fun and adventures we all have in our motorhomes.:thumb:

    failing that just bend his ear at every opportunity :shout:

    noooooo dont bend ear

    plant the seed just like in a garden and help it flourish gently water liberally (alcohol) then a few days later casually say oh yes remember saying we could go and look at some motorhomes the other night well shall we just go and look, and i know you just said it to please me, but can we

    Buy one for yourself, and don't forget to wave goodbye.

    no joy , i always plant a seed and leave it to sprout with bill then eventually he thinks its his idea, and i go along with it - simples

    mind sometimes it takes some time for it to come to fruitition

    Rent a motorhome for a period seems like a good solution, or you could take him for a drive around the countryside and "coincidentally" pass a motorhome dealer :Smile:
