    We are getting mums MH ready for a festival weekend and I'm thinking how privileged we are not having to walk half a mile lugging camping gear, waiting in line for an hour to have a shower and using smelly portaloos all weekend.
    Do you take your MH for granted??

    Never take her for granted!! She's just like a lady. Requires kid gloves to handle, it's slower first thing in the morning, makes great bacon sarnies, is comfortable and inviting and nice and warm to be inside :)

    I feel I'm Absolutely privileged, the money that I spent on buying, running a MH and keeping it up to scratch is not peanuts. Regardless of how far I travel I just love being in the MH.

    At a music festival absolutely totally privileged. Dry bed, your own toilet and hot water. The only way to festival and one of the big reasons why we bought our first van. Our next one is Beautiful Days if anyone wants to meet up for lots of cider (y)

    Not at a festival..... I think I still feel privileged. We can finish up with work and school on a Friday afternoon and just decide to go somewhere. No worrying about dog sitters or 14 year old prop sitters. Just go.

    Both of those things are worth a lot to me.

    When we bought IT, we had problems with IT, but we have gone past that now, and IT! cross fingers,legs, eyes, touch wood, salt, over shoulder, IT! will serve us well, IT will!

    I do sometimes, especially on long journeys.

    Is there anything better than just cooking your lunch on a motorway aire?

    Love it.

    Having paid our dues under various forms of canvas and in a cramped VW Kombi, and having worked hard to pay for it, we feel we've earned our relatively comfy place in a MH. I leave it to others to decide if we're privileged, and we definitely don't take it for granted.

    When we were stuck in a queue at Calais port during a fisherman's blockade of the harbour mouth, tucking into our meal at a table while those around us sweated and grumbled in over-full family cars I have to confess to feeling positively smug, but I can safely admit that here.

    We certainly don't take it for granted. We had to sell our motorhome once to meet a wages bill, :crying1: losing it against your will is heartbreaking.

    Spose it's a bit like when I had my own business ( in partnership with my wife) and being told how " lucky" I was, my answer was always the same, the harder I worked the luckier I got.
    Sooooo, if you are in a tent, perhaps you spent yur money in some other way......or you just ain't " Lucky" :whistle:

    Had an appointment this morning and was told how lucky I was to have the lifestyle I have...... nothing to do with luck but a lot to do with hard work and organising things so that when I did have to give up work I was able to access savings made over the previous 50 years.
