    Hi Funsters,
    We are recent recruits to Motorhome Fun and do not yet have a motorhome :Blush:. We would like to come to the rallies & meets so we can meet up with other Funsters but are not sure we would be welcome with our caravan :cry: Can you tell us what is the situation as far as this is concerned?

    Its not a problem at all, all are welcome no matter what their form of accommodation is, plenty of past funsters came in caravans whilst looking for their first motorhome.
    In a way i still use a caravan all be it a 5th wheel unit

    We have quite a few caravans turn up on meets, its not an issue at all. Some are between motorhomes, other have gone back to caravans for whatever reason but like to rally with funster Friends. Our very first meet, we had RV's a fifttwheel every type of European and a trailer tent. No one has a care for what you turn up in, the rallies have always been more about the people rather than what they can afford or prefer. It's been much the same ever since that first rally, so you'll be made most welcome.:thumb:

    Hello,

    Always good to meet new folk, whatever they are camping in :)

    Last year at marsden airfield meet, we had a couple who had been let down on their camper purchase, but came anyway, every day, all day, and had a thoroughly good time ::bigsmile:

    S :Cool:

    You could sleep under the hedge in a rubble sack and no-one would judge you.

    I bet you'd be offered loads of tea and bacon butties every morning, though :thumb:

    Well someone's off MY Xmas card list.

    You may not care if they sleep under a hedge in a rubble sack but personally I'd like to think I'd at least offer them a carpeted floor to lay their heads! (unless they are actually rolling drunk or have been under the hedge for a week already)

    :ROFLMAO:

    The only difference is you won't get an automatic wave from a motorhomer coming toward you on the road:RollEyes:

    What is it about you Yosser? Why is it the world is against you? I know the answer, perhaps you should change your 666 number plate:Eeek:
