    Firstly, hello to everyone from a new member.

    Having just spent the last couple of days driving across Europe from the U.K. to Moldova, not in a MH i may add, I've been bitten by the travel bug. Unfortunately not having a clue about motorhomes, I would appreciate some direction as to which makes or models would be suitable for a long term live in, i.e. 12 mnths plus .

    This is a kind of shortlist of requirements.
    New or used, no preference
    90% of time 1 or 2 occupants.
    Spares availability.
    LHD.
    Comfort and quality.
    Does not have to be fixed bed.
    Intend to tow a small car
    Will be running mobile office from camper....
    Budget max 70k sterling

    Kind of non specific I know, but these are starting points.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Hi and welcome to FUN

    Really depends on whether you want a biggy RV or a more conventional motorhome, we have a Swift Kontiki Tag for sale brand new or theres a selection of pre-owned on the website.

    Ask Andy for advice, he is a fellow MH owner but not a full timer.

    There are plenty of RV owners on here for advice.

    Good luck in your search.

    Looking for a conventional style MH.

    Having trawled the internet last night the choice is mind boggling, a good motorhome show would be a start...

    The plans are to spend 3 or 4 months in Cyprus during the winter and the rest of the year touring around europe. Fingers crossed.....

    Hi Nick
    Have a look at the m/h mags... there's one that gives diagrams of the layouts... more mind boggling stuff:Wink:

    Next I'd suggest going along to a dealer or two (and any shows) and spend time sitting in and crank up the imagination...
    It'll be too soon to make a choice but you'll have a better grasp on what you don't want.

    Make haste slowly:thumb:
