    I am setting off to travel Europe with some friends. They have their own panel vans with mattresses in! I have so much space it seems a shame to travel without giving someone else a chance? Do you think wise to take an unknown free spirit or go alone?

    I'd go alone rather than with a stranger. You will probably be providing the facilities of your van to the others anyway.

    A very generous offer Justice. People are always wary about things like this, I assume you will get to meet first and veto any "undesirable" companions !?!?!? (Or they you !!)
    If this were an open site, you would have standing room only !!!
    Good luck and enjoy your tour..
    Mitch..

    Do you really want a stranger sharing your MH, is it for added company or shared costs...If your serious look on the sister site or advertise on www.trailmates.co.uk

    It all depends on your choice of companion !
    If you can find a tolerant ,open minded,buxom,well heeled free spirit who likes a drink or two,cleans is fluent in multiple languages and cooks a hearty meal......... YESSSSSSSSSS !

    Go for it.


    If not a dog may be a safer bet.

    I was trying to find what others think. The negatives out balance the positives. If a problem even after vetting can't just throw them out. If I meet a traveller on route would be difficult to join too. I have been robbed by someone I let in my home so could happen but most of all I like my own space... And snore!

    sorry Justice i am a bit confused! ( not that that is difficult for me:rolleyes: ) i understood your OP to indicate you were going to travel and were considering taking an unknown free spirit.

    clearly i got that wrong :rolleyes: as you had already clearly made up your mind from poor experiences prior to making you post.

    we have an 8m MH, after a couple of weeks that isn't big enough sometimes and we have been married for 34 years, my recommendation is go as you have planned, enjoy the company of your friends and your own space in the van (y)

    "unknown" "free spirit".

    A bit like Russian Roulette with an automatic.

    Tricky even with a close friend in such a small space.

    That's The Boring Olde Farte Opinion.

    Thinking out loud. It's directly about MHs and a thought provoking idea. One of today's better posts.
