    First time I introduced us we were thinking about buying a M/home,I asked a few questions
    then we left it for a few months whilst we considered our options.
    Today we went to a show in Carmarthen and bought a pre-owned Liberty 591-we only went to look,but this ticked all the boxes for us and was within our budget. We were actually looking at a larger Liberty and were told that there was another couple considering it as well.They were thinking of trading in the 591 which they had bought from the same company-as we were thinking about it they returned,and in a rather surreal conversation they ended up going home and bringing back the 591 which we decided was a much better option as a first van for us than the larger one-so,2 vans were sold in 5 mins
    and every one is happy.
    I will ,doubtless,now be on here asking all the newbie questions as we plan our 1st trip,which should happen in about 3 weeks time
    1st Q-is it worth joining any club ? If so-which?
    Looking fwd to any replies,Mike

    Congrats Mike, :thumb: There is a lot of talk about which club, If you like CL's which are the small 5 van private sites, then I the the CC has the best selection of these, that said its a bit like choosing between the AA and the RAC, there is not a lot in it. Have a great first trip:Smile:

    I notice that people have a short descriptive piece under their names-is this the 'signature'?
    Also-Insurance Company are asking what class it is-It's a Liberty 591 Star-how do I find out the Class.?

    Hi Mike, welcome back I am glad you found the van you wanted, please note there is another Rally at Carmarthen in April, I am Marshal for that show so do please let me know if you would like to come. Just click on the link below.

    As to joining a club apart from this one I guess it depends on how you intend to use the motorhome, site sitting, wilding, or a mixture of both. At home or abroad. As a life long wild camper we only ever use sites for shows so membership of a club is an unnecessary expense for us. so you pays your money and makes your choice. Others with more experience of the various clubs will not doubt advise on the best option there.

    which club?

    hi Mike,

    We were at Carmarthen too! Didn't buy anything half as interesting as a new van - just loo paper and toilet chemicals!

    We are only a few weeks ahead of you in motorhoming terms and are off for our 1st full week away next week. We joined the CC partly cos theirs was the cheapest insurance and partly cos of access to their small sites - the Certified Locations. We've tried 4 so far (all in Wales) and they have all been great. We have booked another 4 for our week away and all the people there and at the CC seem really keen to help. but can't comment on Caravan & Camping club.

    Enjoy your new motorhome.
