    Hi all
    New member just signed up. I have been motorhoming for 4 years now. I have a Winnebago Le Sharo that I purchased without any experience and have thus rebuilt it from scratch replacing all the American parts with English. I am presently replacing the Renault 4 speed with a 5 speed box. We (wife) have toured toured France and Spain quite extensively over the past three years have used both aires and campsites and have generally had a great time even during breakdowns, (which cost a fortune in both Spain and France). I am retired and my wife works only when she needs to. Because of the limitations of having a small engine and loving mountains I am currently in the process of buying a Smart car to tow behind on an `A` frame towbar. Any advice would be most welcome.

    Hi and welcome to the site, I hope the tin worm is not too extensive. Most le sharo's I have come across were fallling to bits. Hopefully you have found a good one (or at least it will be by the time you have finished)

    First advice then is search on A frames in here, especially if you like Spain.
