    There are a lot of full timers on MHF . I'm sure some will come along soon.
    There's a section on the forum I think too.
    Your coach looks fab BTW.
    I thought you were in the process of doing it. Not that you'd finished . Is that a loo with a view I can see? Next to the cream sofa? That looks like it's in a great position opposite your wood burning stove !
    Who ever did your leather seats looks like they did an excellent job too. It all looks very nice. :clap2:

    Incredible. Just think if you went to a builder "I want this......" probably in Germany. "Yes Sir that will be €900,000, cash in advance".

    Your real problem is how to do it justice ( ha ha ), it's saying "I want to take 10 years going round the world".

    You will suffer with where to park up but with the size of your balls you'll laugh that off.


    PS It will be a nice little earner giving conducted tours, £5 simple, £15 with champers and a little biscuit with a blob of something on.

    Hey if some would pay, I would sing... Then they would pay for me to stop! Its a short wheel base. Only 28 ft long. Fits in 2 supermarket bays with space left. Has a full lock turning circle too. I hope positives outweighs negatives!

    Hi. Nice conversion going on there. I will not let Colin see it as that will start him off again!

    We are recent fulltimers. Took the plung last July but couldn't start travelling until Decmeber. We are in a Morocco at the moment and learning quickly. Only been here 3 days and we are now driving into the middle of Marrakech to stop on an aire for a few days.

    As Hilldweller so eloquently put it, you need a certain amount of balls but not that big!

    Did Cliff have an PSV licence ?

    I would assume the bus is over 7500kg so will need an HGV2 or C class as a motorhome

    Nothing fears me. To have fear is insanity as it does not exist, same as worry. I can't about what may never be. I will take each challengeDon't know if Morocco is on my list but who knows!
