    We have decided that we want to dip our toe in the motor home world and before packing up home and renting it out we thought we would try a month on the road.
    Our plan was to rent for this moth take as much advice on where to go and stay as possible then head off. Any support, links or as I said advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Daisy and Boo :)

    Hello and welcome to Fun, I would do as much research as you can, what size van would you like, do you need storage for bikes / BBQ/ outside table and chairs, are you planning on touring the continent or staying in the UK, I don't think hiring for a month will give you what you need.

    I would work out what I think I want, look around as many dealers as you can, try to get to a motorhome show, no need to buy new, indeed on a motorhome its more about condition and mileage than anything else.

    Do you need one that is winterised, for the UK, a lot of people are doing what you are thinking of, read through threads, look at the Morocco thread, type fulltimeing into the search engine and see what comes up.
    For definite I would think the best £10 you could spend is the subscription to Motorhome Fun, you will have unlimited access to a huge motorhomeing community with practical advice never far away. Good luck with your adventure.

    A good idea to rent one first. Some dealers will knock off some/all of the rental if you subsequently buy.

    I would suggest you try France first as it is so much nicer than the UK for using a motorhome. You'll get used to the extra size quite quickly.
