    hi all,
    Newbie here. I would be interested to hear of experiences of any solo female motorhomers when travelling mainland Europe. Thanks

    Hi Bleeper and Welcome!

    You have a solo section on here, but I think you have to first subscribe to be able to see it.
    After 5 posts without subscribing (upper toolbar) you can't post anymore and become a "read only Funster"

    You'll get a lot for the tenner you have to give , really well worth the sacrifice!

    Amicalement

    Frankie:)

    That's alright, you are female, French two good excuses for a start.

    Pity you aren't blonde.

    Hello and welcome bleeper.
    If you want to post anymore you have to join, £10, it worth it. If just for the craic. Let alone advice and discount. We need more women on here too !

    Hi and Welcome.
    There are quite a lot of single females with motorhomes on here.
    I didn't get far in my travels around Europe---plans were cut short by arrival of premature granddaughter. Between her arrival and long protracted sale of my house, I spent about 20 months full timing, on my own, but with 2 dogs and 2 cats.
    I didn't encounter any real problems.
    Sensible safety precautions, I wild camped in France and UK and never felt unsafe but be ready to move if you do feel concerned ( no external screens on, have keys near you, vehicle pointing so you can just drive out)
    Have a contingency fund in case of necessary repairs and then just relax and have fun!

    Hi, used a lot of Aires, but always where others were camping.
    Went to one lovely aire in a village with about 10 places, but empty, so just moved on 5 miles yo another one.
    Most campers helpful and chatty.
