Hi all

So we are looking to upgrade our moho
For something bigger

With 1 fixed bed and one hanging

And plenty floor space

Does anyone here live FT in an RV ?

We thinking to get one as for the money you get a a massive difference

Iv a full c1+E licence so that’s no issue

Parking is what I think may have issue but unsure

Looking for advice on others


Thanks

8 years with an RV
We have had a few RV's, A class, fifth wheel, and currently a B+ Coachmen Concord. We like them, many don't.

We like the space (ours has 3 slide outs}, the comfort, the holding tanks which can give us almost a week between fill/dump, the king size bed in its own room, the useable separate shower, flushing porcelain toilet, lpg tank for domestic use, hydraulic levelling,

At 30ft 6in it isn't small, but it hasn't hindered us at all. We have had 3 months this year in Spain and Portugal, and no problems with parking, and staying on aires, the odd campsite, and wilding. Many European Motorhomes are as long as ours, some are more expensive.

With a Ford V10 engine, it attracts comments like, "how many gallons to the mile"? "you must need a mortgage to run that", etc; It runs happily on LPG or petrol, and light footed can achieve around 10 mpg on LPG, costing less than half the price of diesel, so in monetary terms, similar to a diesel doing 22 mpg.

Thanks for that

See Iv been told loads about the mpg
But I see it as if not travelling all the time so what’s it matter I have an m3 so that says it all really 😂

Plus my job is a file writer (remapping) so can always have a play with things

I did my artic test for the very reason to go larger 🤣

Will need to start viewing some I think

Thanks fro the reply’s

What’s it like finding parking in general off sites if you ever have done and moving it about in Somerset especially?



Ps .I had sneak peak At your profile as the username came to light you may work/own somewhere I know

I took a 36' RV around Corsica a few years ago, downsize to about 33' and then more recently 30' mainly as the family has grown up and we no longer have two huge German Shepherd dogs

If you stick to around 30' (9m) most sites have pitches which are 10m x 10m so not a major issue

Most of our weekend trips away are Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, and in April we spent a couple of weeks in the Highlands

We have just changed again in the last couple of weeks and now have a Winnebago View 24J so looking forward to touring around in a tiny camper now that I am semi retired
