    Hi, I have just joined as we have hired a motorhome, got the bug and just bought our first family motorhome, a tribute 725 and we are very excited. Keen to soak up lots of hints and tips from seasoned travellers and would love hints and ideas on what we need to kit our motor home to make it a home from home. Want to get in and go rather than having to keep packing it up and thinking too hard about what we need.

    hi and welcome
    basically kit the kitchen with all the stuff you need to cook, eat and washup, not forgetting bottle opener/corkscrew and a couple of glassses, and leave them in permanently
    Depending on whether you are going the sleepingbag route or the quilt route you need pillows and coverings (these i would take out through the winter months but leave in once the weather is better)
    Couple of folding chairs so you can sit outside weather permitting (directors chairs with a side table) are ideal as you also have somewhere to put cup or glass
    Towels and teatowels and personal hygine stuff for the bathroom.

    Ehu lead and levellers for on site
    anything else you can get when you have used it a couple of times and have more of an idea how you are going to use your van

    Hello and welcome to Motorhome Fun, any questions you have just ask away and I am sure you will get some replies, leave as much of the essentials in the van so once they are in you can forget about them. :welcomefunster:

    Hi - looks like a really nice van you've got there with a good design and great fittings.

    Enjoy your travels, and like everybody says, don't hesitate to ask if there's anything you want to know about motorhoming. :thumb:
