    Hi All

    Just joined the Fun Community, I am in the process of buying a Right hand drive Sprinter motorhome so I can tour the UK and Ireland for the next 2 or 3 summers. This will be my 4th camper car I have had in Europe ( the first Right hand drive one )
    We have spent 14 months touring Europe but have only toured 3 weeks in UK and Ireland in a regular auto, staying at B&B,s.
    On the Mainland USA (Santa Cruz, California ) we have a 2013 long bed Dodge Ram diesel and a 26 foot Jayco 5th wheel for our US Mainland RVing ( 51 feet long when hooked up). We have RVed since 1993 for 4 to 6 months every year ( then get back home to Kauai when it gets cold ) we are on our 4th truck and 3rd 5th wheel trailer,
    We have toured every US State and Every Canadian Provence ( some many times) We especially enjoy our time on the Mojave Desert ( dry camping or Boon-docking as it is called here )
    We intend to ship the Sprinter to Australia and New Zealand when we get our UK touring done (we have rented campers there before).

    Hope to see you on the road this next Summer in the UK
    ( I will be the guy on the wrong side of the Road )

    Aloha Leon & Eve

    Welcome Leon and Eve.

    You both sound like experienced RVers/motorhomers.

    Wrong side of the road AND the cab sounds daunting but soon becomes second nature.

    Takes me a couple of miles to adjust to my left hand drive RV.

    Welcome to Fun, and from Cornwall.

    We had our honeymoon in Waikiki in 74 on the way to B C (Dawson Creek) to drive the Alaska H/Way

    You have a grim life, I guess someone has to do it.

    Bad news is it's always cold by your standards over here.
