    I have been working on a new section of the site, its now ready for testing and I would appreciate it if you had a go at adding your motorhome.

    The new **Garage facility**allows you to enter details of your motorhome, upload photos into an motorhome gallery, enter and track any modifications or accessories you make, buy or fit. You can tell us where you bought the bits from, how much they cost and the company info as well, you can also rate the company and the kit. You can also track insurance costs, garage costs etc

    These items are all searchable and allow other members to ascertain running costs for a particular motorhomes as well as search for companies. These businesses and insurance companies are all rateable by you the members. There are only a few things that you MUST fill in, others items like costs are optional. But please enter as much as you can

    Please take a look and enter your motorhome now (If your MH make or model isn't shown you can easily add them). I am sure there will be a few teething problems and bugs, as most of you know this is not what I do for a living so it can take a while to get things fixed but we always get there in the end [​IMG]

    The information that the garage will hold will become extremely useful for all of us. So please fill it as much as you can, the more we put it in... etc:Smile:

    Any problems that you find, please shout up on this thread and I will do my best to assist. A few members have already been testing, and some have just found it and begun adding stuff, so they may be able to help out as well.

    HAVE FUN:thumb:

    Folk could then entervehicle type, comment on their choice re suitability etc ,A frame type used, cost etc,

    It allows for more than one vehicle, it allows for 10:Eeek: so if you sell and get another you don't have to delete the old one. So you could easily add your toad as a separate vehicle. Good idea :thumb:

    Well done "Jim" what a clever bit of wizardry. This really is the best motorhome site on the interweb.

    The garage is a place for owners to show off their motorhomes. They can also tell everyone who they are insured with and how much it cost. They can rate service received from garages and the quality of accessories and equipment supplied. The plan is that it is not just somewhere to show us yours, but that it eventually becomes a valuable resource for anyone researching motorhomes, services, insurance and equipment :Smile:

    Buying and selling of motorhomes is covered in our classified section. We have already sold 1.25 MILLION quids worth of stuff FREE:Eeek:

    Jim -

    Can you explain the 1 - 10 rating.
    By what criteria are we supposed to judge other people's pride and joy??

    Thanks for using the garage:thumb: You are not supposed to rate others pride & joy, it was something I was playing with, for rating services etc. The ratings are not shown next to vehicles now:Smile:

    I did think it had the potential to be a bit insulting! :Smile:

    Would it possible to have a section of where you bought it from, Private or Dealer & a simple satisfaction rating system of how it all went.
