    We must be mad! We've never driven a motorhome before, but we've decided to jump in with both feet (well four feet) and decided to order our first motorhome a Hymer ML-T 580. The sad thing is we have to wait until a December/January delivery before we can get our eager mits on it. At least the delay is providing the necessary time to thoroughly research what we are getting into.

    Our tentative plans for our first trip abroad is to visit Portugal and Spain from Mid February to Mid May.

    Bring it on :)

    Hello and welcome from West Midlands. We bought our very much on a whim and certainly never regretted it. I think before zooming off to Spain and Portugal I'd suggest trying France. You might find it surprising.

    Welcome to the most helpful motorhome forum on the internet. Not only will they assist with any questions you may have, they will also help you spend on items you never knew existed:)

    As a fellow newbie awaiting collection of our new MH, I'd like to say that the wait will be painless but then I would be lying. We ordered our Burstner in March and it's been agonising:cry:, just two more sleeps:D

    Good luck and don't forget to subscribe on here to open up even more benefits(y)

    Yes, much better than some I hear of who plan and look for several years before taking the plunge, think of all their years of lost fun! :)

    Good plan. Better if you reverse it. Spain then Portugal when it warms up.

    Welcome. Perfect timing for escaping the miserable UK winter I'd say - in fact why not pick it up (or have it delivered) and then head for the sun!
