    Afternoon all,

    I bought my first MH yesterday (Fiat Ducato Eura Mobil....if that means anything to you?)...

    My MH was bought for a trip I am planning next April through France and Spain (with the plan to stay in Spain :Smile:) I thought I'd buy one now so that I can get used to how everything works and test it in our wonderful summer :Blush:.
    I'm sure lots of questions will follow as the months pass, I've already read on here about flushing the water tanks and recommended fluids (so that'll be my first job)....
    If in your experience you feel there are things I should really ensure I've done/consider before hitting the road, your input is more than welcome!!

    For the winter months I will be looking for storage, so if anyone knows of anywhere in or near Brighton ::bigsmile:.

    It seems from reading a lot of the posts on here, my MH needs a name!!! Suggestions welcome!!!! Otherwise I'll end up with Bert or something.....not that there is anything wrong with Bert of course!!!

    That's all for now....

    Tel

    Hi Tel and welcome to the Fun
    If you have aquired an A Class euromobile (I think a lot of them are)
    Then the first and most important thing is proper and correct GLASS insurance
    I just seen a quote from Autoglass for £5000:Eeek: for and A class motor home windcreen not covered by insurance

    Got to be hasn't it, Brighton Berti.

    Get an artist to paint the pavilion on the side. OK, you'll get some folk knocking on the door to order chicken tikka but what style it would have.
