Hello all! New here, and I'm after some advice....... We are looking for a motorhome, and I have some questions. Firstly, a few facts: there are just the two of us (in our early 40's) plus our three large dogs (Airedale Terriers). The max size of MH we could have is around 20' long (ish), due to a tight turn off our lane onto our driveway (we live very rural). We would want to use it all year around, for short breaks (from long days out to a couple of nights away). We have around £15,000 to £20,000 to spend (I don't really want to go over the £20,000 mark). We like the look of coachbuilt MHs and five berth ones seem to be about right: at night, the two of us over the cab, and the three dogs on the other seats. I *think* a mid kitchen would be best but I would like to hear from others what they think. I would like an awing and safari room (space for the dogs during the day/evening) ~ any problems with these I should know about? I have read a lot about judder problems on newer Fiats (?): which models does this affect please. Is it hard to winterise a MH, and do any/most have electric as well as gas blown heating? We would like to use it all year around: any problems/issues with using a MH in the depths of winter? We intend to buy in a couple of months, after peak summer (once the days cool down and hopefully when prices drop a bit). I would like a MH with the door on the nearside: I don't want to be getting the dogs out on the 'live' side if we stop on a road. We have never had a MH before, but had a caravan last year for a few months. Caravaning is not for us, but we loved the freedom it brought and can see that a MH is just what we need. Have I missed anything? Thanks!
