We collected our motorhome a month ago. I always thought that I may like to try driving it but due to the other half having a few pints, ended up driving it back home in the dark and have not looked back. Husband has not had a look in and I just love driving it. On our short travels so far I have seen lots of motorhomes but not any lady drivers. Where are you all?

I think you'll find there are quite a few on here. (y)
I'm sure they'll be along shortly.

Me to despair when she's at the controls!

No, not really! She drives well and loves the break from having to pass me the Pringles!!

My wife drove ours, I would have been happier if I had had a few beers. She did say she wanted RHD auto and I bought LHD manual though.

You ought to team up with my Mrs. She finds driving the Van relaxing.I do most of the navigation, and drive when she gets tired. I don't mind it at all.

I love the driving and Dave is happy perusing the map or having a snooze.

Hi Lisa (great name) (y)
I do most of the driving in all our vehicles but, for some reason, Julian has done most of the driving in the motorhome (only had it about a month ourselves). He likes driving it. The novelty will soon wear off and I will be back in the driving seat, but I'm almost enjoying being a passenger ;)

I drive ours! I even go away with my girlie mates in mine. However I did used to many many years ago drive trucks in the army so have had some practice! Love driving it, easier than a car in my opinion.:roflmto:

I must get Josie to have a go, she drives the car well but unless I break a leg or something she won't attempt the van.

I'm a newbie bought our first motorhome 7months ago and love it
Rachel used to drive the old one, but due to restrictions she can't drive 5tonne ( only passed her test 9 years ago )
Anyone know of any reasonably priced courses where she could pass test.
I'm fed up of her drinking all my beer

It's much better than car driving. You can see so much more because of the height. It's more comfortable. I thought the manoeuvring would be tricky but that's not as bad as I thought.

I've always towed the horses in a trailer or driven horseboxes/Lorries, so the motorhome is a breeze....
