    hello all i am a newbe, never had a moterhome before thinking about getting one to travel Europe so got lots of questions to ask, iam used to driving in Europe as i was a class 1 HGV a few years back but never did the holiday thing, always working and it not the same, so i will be posting a bit as time goes by and hope to learn a lot,

    if your wondering why i am called crabman its because ii had a shellfish export business in my younger days,


    well all the best you can call me crabs, crabby or other names if you so wish lol

    Hello Welcome to Fun, a good idea to use us the forum for research and questions, don't forget you get just 5 free posts then you will need to join £15 per annum it'll be the best money you can spend on your search for a Motorhome.

    today they are great vehicles, beds bunks, night heaters all the works, i have not driven a HGV for a while since i sold my business, its like riding a bike once you do it you don’t forget, you may not believe this many of you but the larger the vehicle like a 15mt Truck the easier it is to drive, i recently took to driving a motorbike a
    125 cc never driven a motorbike before i found it harder than truck driving lol, but it true, anyway looking at a motor home now to take away my bit of totty on the side so my wife does not know, my tottys name is Bertha i will upload a picture of her for you all to see, you men get your eyes of this gorgeous woman she all mine

    btw you can call her Bertha from Bangor she looks good after loosing 6 stone in weight :LOL:
