    Morning all
    Having taken the plunge on a motorhome I thought I'd best join a forum for all of the endless questions that I will need answering, sorry
    We have been caravanning for about 6 or 7 years as it's a way of holidaying with our 2 black labs however we decided that a motorhome would give us more freedom to do a bit more travelling so on the 2nd April we collect our Swift Bolero 630PR, we'd seen one of these the previous year at a show and thought the layout was ideal for our needs so after seeing one at a local dealership recently we've taken the plunge. We have always wanted to travel around Scotland so in May that's where we're heading, we've booked ourselves into 4 CC sites the furthest being Culloden, before that though we'll be getting used the van with a couple of long weekends to Cornwall, hopefully they'll be stress free!

    Welcome, may I recommend when you go to Culloden Moor, that to visit Channery Point only about 30 minutes away to watch the Dolphins in the Moray a Firth, they come very close to the coast and are very impressive !

    Hi & welcome,

    We've had caravans for 3 years and like you wanted more touring but without all the hassle of setting up, etc so bought our RV in September last year and never loved back.

    Been to Lake District for several weekends and up to scotland along the west coast ver the winter. Away this weekend, Chester rally next weekend, several other weekends already in the diary and 3 weeks touring France in the summer. Can't wait.

    Enjoy your adventures and hope to meet you along the way.

    Loren

    Hi & welcome:)

    We're ex-caravanners (20ys+) but got a mh last year and are loving it and wish we'd had done it sooner(y)

    Still learning loads and it's surprising how different a mh is to a caravan:D

    Wishing you loads of fun & adventures:)

    And it's a big HELLO from Les and I too.
    The one thing you might notice is the odd rattle or two as you drive along, they were always there, you just couldn't hear them from the tow-car!!
    Enjoy your new adventures.
