    Sadly i dont own a motorhome ( ducks for cover), but am looking at that as an option when/if i hit an early retirement :Smile:. The thought of going where you like, when you like, appeals to the free spirit in me. still a dream though :cry:. till then i'll just have to put on a brave face :helpsos:

    owning a motorhome doesnt always have to remain a dream. plenty of older van conversions about as cheap as a second hand car. i know several people use their van to commute to work in the week and weekends away

    Hiya ,
    do lots of looking on here and in motorhomes , whilst your dreaming. That way you wont rush in to getting one. Then you should get it right 1st time.
    We thought why wait ? Weve not got great pensions that will pay out massive sums , so why not get one whilst we were working.
    Best thing we ever did.
    1st weekend at home this weekend in weeks. :Cool:

    keep dreaming

    I spent two year looking at sites for my RV, looked at a lot of rubbish on the way.. then the right time came and the right motorhome.

    It is never to early to start looking.. thinking of those places you want to visit. You can start to work out the size, lay out, costs v what you can afford... sometimes you need to trim the dream.. compromise is a word all motor home owners know... regardless if it is what you can afford or does it fit your life style.

    I know you say you have to wait until you retire, but lots of people have them that work... I am retired now, but I had my first motor one over 25 years back... so never say never.

    Good luck and hope and join us in the debates.

    Bob
