    Being a biker and a motorhomer reading another popular thread on a bike forum, the question was how come there are not many black or asian bikers? I have a mate who is half jamican and loves his bmw, I have yet to see a non white motorhomer on our travels.:cautious:

    Only ever seen a black family in a motorhome once....you tend to remember these moments.

    Maybe the nomadic lifestyle is too close to (historic) home for them.

    There was a black English guy on the site we're on at the moment down in Spain but you don't see many.

    It's no surprise with the blatant racism expressed by several members of this website; we cannot abide racism at any level. Keep on truckin' with Suzy n Toby Trux.

    I don't believe racism plays any part in who owns or uses a motorhome or caravan.... it may be a cultural issue............. but not anything to do with race........ you could say the same about boating/yachting/flying/snooker - or darts! :)Eeek:)....lots of pastimes.....

    If I was a betting man I'd wager you won't have the bottle though I'd be happy to be proved wrong (y)

    I know and used to regularly meet up with an extended indian/english family with 4 caravans and motorhomes between them. lovely family and even they said it was alien to the culture they were bought up in, but the loved the lifestyle. as for seeing black families using motorhomes, its not really that rare to see

    Yes this is true. I worked with an Indian lad and I asked him this question and he didn't know anyone in his family here or in India that had ever been camping or caravanning static or tourer. It's just something they don't do. He does package holidays to Spain and Italy.

    Its nothing to do with racism, whoever you are whatever race or culture , in this country you make your own choice and if you wish buy a motorhome you buy it.
    As far as blatant racism, I must have missed something :rolleyes:

    Spent my formative years ( up to 45) in the Midlands in a very multi cultural environment and loved it.
    Since we moved to the South East I have noticed sometimes an intolerance of anybody not of white British ancestry.
    Not everyone of course, and not usually malicious, but very noticeable.

    It is quite possible they could be second or third generation Brits and like the lifestyle. Is it racist to call caravaners "tuggers" ? (n):whistle:

    It rears its ugly head now and then, but thankfully only from a very small minority.
