    Hi all.

    Almost a bit of a fraud at the moment - waiting to get first MH, - dependant on DVLA giving me back class C driving after a heart attack last year and put on to insulin (diabetic). Now they realise insulin is not working for me, so back onto tablets. Ho hum... Meanwhile, still waiting to see if I'm gonna join the zipper club. Good ol' NHS.

    My better half and I were almost convinced by a new Rapido, but then someone showed us Class B+ & Class C motorhomes. Now we're fervently searching thru info ( what is difference between B+ & C btw? ) whilst waiting for aforementioned DVLA. So we may end up with a 7090+, a 992MH, or something that naturally comes with LHD and an engine that could pull Nelson's Column over.

    We intend to tour Europe (well the bits of Europe we've heard of). We've had caravans in the past, but MHing will be "novel" and "interesting" . We know we'll find many challenges, but we also know we'll get to experience more of the world than we have so far, and that hopefully we'll meet and make new friends on the way.

    Any advice is welcomed - Please assume I know nothing, and you won't be far from the truth. As things become clearer, I'll hopefully start to fill in some of the blanks and update you folks so you can share our troubles and triumphs. Oh, and we're mid - 40's who want to experience more of life before we're too old to enjoy it !

    Thanks Both.
    JSW (may I call you that?) Unfortunately, my ignorance is such that I don't know enough to be able to identify the questions to ask yet...

    I did say we were totally new to MHing didn't I? :BigGrin:

    Welcome to our little corner of www world papa smurf. I think that the only dumb question is the one you DON'T ask :Laughing::Laughing:
    Just fire away with questions as you think of them, sometimes it makes even the more experienced sit and think about it, so that is good for everyone :Laughing:
