    Hi everyone, due to age and crickerty bones, we have taken the decision to sell our caravan and try our hand at motorhomes, thought we would try it out first with something cheap first, so looking at a 1994 swift royale 540, on a fiat chassis, to start off with,

    Yes, your doing the right thing, my guess is that motorhomes get 6 times as much use as a caravan, I doubt you'll regret it for a moment:thumb:

    Hire a Motor home for a week or so
    just like caravans the layout it personal choice
    do your home work as they are not cheap to buy or run

    think about electric step/ manual
    i went for automatic with cruse control great for the old feet & legs

    i all so went for a rear fixed bed so no messing to get a lay down
    LPG is cheaper than any other fuel

    enjoy your MH and the club
    yours

    ps if you want to try mine give me a call

    Hi Smurf

    Welcome to MH Fun

    Don't think you are doing the wrong thing, we did it years ago still with the motorhome.

    When the family were growing up we had caravans for over 20 years and loved it. Circumstances change and I am now on my second motorhome, and love it.

    I believe that it is not always helpful to compare caravans and motorhomes, each have their own pros and cons. If you decide to get a motorhome then embrace the motorhome way, rather than try to motorhome in a caravan way (if you see what I mean).

    For my purposes a motorhome is for touring, while a caravan tends to be more of a set up and stay put way of doing things.

    Welcome to MHF, I defy you to find a more friendly bunch of people. :thumb:
