    Hello to all. We have just purchased our very first Motorhome and we can't wait to learn all about a different way of touring.
    We have always had caravans but we don't seem to use them as much as we should. We run our own business so time off is short notice and varied. We hope switching to a motorhome will make it a bit easier to get away at the drop of a hat. Any tips or advice from you experts out there will be greatly received.
    So excited. Hopefully pick her up next week all going well. :D

    Do a couple weekends away . You will soon find out what you will use / need , rather that buying a load of stuff. Half of which you will hardy ever use

    Welcome to the forum. What van have you gone for ? We looked for ages before we chose, and, to be honest, we probably over-thought it. Which is easy to do when you are spending so much hard-earned cash lol

    Yes I know what you mean. We've considered this for ages. Finally went for it at the Motorhome show at NEC and got a Swift Kontiki 679. Ticks all the right boxes for us. Can't wait to try it. (y)

    :D Thank you. I really hope it can change the amount of times we get away a year. As I said running our own business means grabbing a night here and a couple of nights there. With the caravan it seemed to be a right rigmarole so fingers crossed there will be some R&R ahead. (y)
