    Hi, after thinking about it for 8 months we put down a deposit on our "new" secondhand motorhome. After a sleepless night I went back today just to confirm it's really happened. Yes our chosen van had Sold in the window! We're complete newbies, semi retired, lots and lots to learn. But we bought some plastic glasses today as a start.

    Welcome! The best way to learn is just to get out there and use it!

    We've got a month to wait before we can do that. But will use the time for research on here and asking questions if that's OK.

    I reckon thats a fine idea, but you would be well advised to cough up your £15 to become full "Funsters" members.

    Oh and WELCOME by the way.

    I can only suggest a first trip near to home if not actually on the drive! Enjoy!

    Yes I'll join. Living where we do we're spoilt for choice of where to go for our first trip. Unfortunately we'll be needing storage as V short drive and think not allowed to park outside in our small close. When we bought the house had no idea we'd do this. Thanks for warm welcome. Need reassurance making this huge commitment

    Hi, and welcome.
    The secret is to use it.
    You can buy lots of stuff from charity shops to leave in the van, so all you have to do is full with water, throw some clothes and food in and off you go!
