    Hi All
    We're very new to this campervan life but are loving it! Have only had our van for a little less than a month now prompted by a very dear friend who has been diagnoised with terminal cancer :cry:. We have been saving for years and saying when we can afford it but as he said do it now and enjoy so we have and we are :BigGrin:. Sometimes we all need a wakeup call to make us jump into the unknown. We have three dogs who are very happy not to be in a tent getting wet I must admit and now the kids don't want to come with us we have more than enough space for what we need. I have loads of questions that I'm sure you will know the answers to and will seem very daft at times :Doh:but we only learn by asking and I'm not scared to ask! Cheers for now.

    Hello..:thumb:..you'll find a warm welcome and plenty of useful advice from the experts here. Meanwhile, those of us who are still pretty new to this will nod our heads in agreement and mumble positively to all the useful advice while we pretend we know about the subject matter :Smile:.

    I'd been thinking of getting a campervan for a while, and had good reasons to get it, but it took a similar scenario to yours for me to finally go for it. It's been almost 6 months since I got the van and I haven't regretted it - and no small part of that has been down to this community.

    Hi there and welcome to MH Fun

    So glad you have decided to go for it.

    I used to work as a service rep and the number of people who when they found I had a motorhome used to say," I will get one of those when I retire", My stock answer was why wait.

    It was surprising over the years how many for one reason or another never made it to owning one, such a shame.

    Best of luck

    Welcome... There are lots of nice people on here.

    What part of Lancashire are you from? I think you may find you have several very close neighbours.
