    Evening all.

    After many years of caravanning with family and friends, we sold our Swift Challenger a year ago and settled down to weekends at home with our Grandchildren.
    It worked really well but with retirement looming, and family emigrating, its time to hit the rally fields again but this time in a motorhome, or is it motor caravan?

    Anyway whatever it is, we will be picking up a 2011 Auto Trail Excel 590 this weekend and trying it out for a couple of nights on a CC site near Wellington.
    I shall no doubt be surfing this site on a regular basis, and if you are at Wellington this weekend, have pity on us poor newbie's and give us a hand if new look a bit lost.

    Thanks

    Welcom .
    We were caravanners for 15 years before we took the plunge and bought an Autotrail Savannah and never looked back.
    all you have to do is pick sites either near transport, towns or just load up with all you need and chill out.

    Seems like a whole new life style on the horizon, so much freedom with a Motorhome any questions just ask that's what it's all about. Don't forget you get 5 free posts then you can join up £15 per annum to get the full benefits and there are many rallies discount information and plenty of banter :welcomesign:
