    What is meant by your motorhome having a "garage"?
    I am sort of assuming that it is a large locker sort of thing, but I am usually way off these things when I actually find out what they are, TOAD for instance, took me ages to realise what they were:Rofl1:.
    thanks in advance

    correct....a large locker, with oversized doors passing right through (usually) from side to side at the rear.
    usually under a fixed bed.

    occasionally large enough for a small motorbike/scooter.

    a garage is a large locker in the rear of the motorhome that can accomodate a couple of bike, scooter or motorcycle. A fixed bed is usually found on the top of it. so there you have it.

    Full timing in the van
    And there was me thinking that you had a inflatable garage in your lockers and you took it out and blow it up then put your motorhome in it:Doh::Doh:

    Thanks John.

    When I first joined here, I had this really strange idea that people took big gazebo things to park under:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
