    Collected our first RV today. Skint but happy :whistle:

    30ft Fourwinds Hurricane 8.1 Chevy Vortec running on LPG.

    First impressions after driving home from Gloucester.....Wow...it's a bit big !! :Wink:

    Everthing seems great though and can't wait to get away in it.

    Mrs Jinks thinks it's lovely but the suicide seat has got her a bit edgy :Rofl1:

    Congrats, now you can keep spending and the first lesson in sitting in the suicide seat is to SHUT YOUR EYES :Eeek:

    suicide seat.....wonderful thing.

    gives you the chance to tell her "shut the f*** up, i'm concentrating on staying on our side of the road and i cant do with you bendin' me ear." :Rofl1:

    worked for me and i got away with it. :thumb:

    As Jim said, it will shrink around you. Just take her out as often as you can and it won't be too long before you are completely at ease with the size. Sorry I cannot say the same about the suicide seat, no amount of experience here makes it any less scary. :BigGrin:

    :Wink: Suggest that Mrs Jinks drives, to some that is a bigger scare and the suicide seat seems the better option! Doesn't work for me as Lyn will drive anything (normally better than me:Angry::Rofl1:)
    Just seen your Royal Yeoman link, I am in Taunton but go past your place virtually every weekend on the way to Poole, it looks a fantastic CL for anyone interested:thumb:

    We started our site Cornish Farm touring park as a CL

    Good luck with your new RV you'll love it
