    Second time in 27 years we've been Motorhomeless. I don't like it at all. :( Our beloved Hymer had to go as circumstances change. We now travel everywhere with Rocky our 70kg German Shepherd. (He used to stay at home and look after Siâns mum) and with four of us on the road and our trailer getting bigger and heavier, and us spending longer in the road each year, we needed to go a little bigger and a lot stronger. Hopefully if things work out we should have a new rig on the road sooner rather than later. :)

    Looking forward to the unveiling of the New Van Jim, we will have to run a book on what it is.

    My guess, tag axle Hymer. (n)

    No a couple of feet longer, and a couple feet shorter than most tag axle motorhomes. Its not a tag axle.
