    Are you sure you didn't mean 'Chains are possessions that hold you down'? ;)

    Can't believe the three gennys - we manage very well with two leisure batteries - what on earth are you running and do you really need it? Seems an awful lot of weight to carry, not to mention the space taken up or the hassle of repacking the boot every time you decide to use one of them. However, each to his own but we prefer our motorhoming to be as uncomplicated as possible - it's much more relaxing. There is, of course, an ulterior motive: the less luggage room taken up by unnecessary equipment, the more room there is for cases of wine on the way home! Happy motorhoming.

    Thank you very much Mr Huwmari for the interest shown in my motorhoming life.

    As someone who has lived full time in his motorhome for over thirty years I have just about got my needs sorted out!

    Please don't worry about the weight of my van... I have never weighed any of my vans and neither has anyone else.

    I am not carrying three gennies because I use three gennys... the rare time I use my (new to me) genny for pie cooking, I do NOT have to do any unpacking or repacking of my boot. (I have more than one door into my boot.)

    I don't know anyone with a more relaxed motorhoming life than me. :rofl:

    Every single item in my Classic Hymer 660S plays a vital role. I have no need to carry around "large" quantities of wine as I definitely have no desire what so ever to reduce the already depleted number of my brain cells by killing them with alcohol.

    I don't use my motor home for holidays... I use it to live in.

    Actually I am wrong again... every day is a holiday in my life!

    JJ :cool:

    I had a little clear-out of my tool locker recently.
    As well as three full socket sets and four crowbars, I found that we had two 6lb sledgehammers.
    I'm wondering if this is excessive.

    And does everyone else carry a Flymo?
