    Hello there I joined today recommended by my new insurance as a good group to join to validate the part of the insurance that requires joining a campervan club....so I'm hoping they were right
    Pleased to be here as I'm sure there will be lots of experience to dip into.
    I just bought a ford transit high top LWB crew van and we are getting straight on the case to convert to a camper. Got a good man lined up that has lots of experience doing stuff like this to get work done so feeling confident we will create something to suit our needs and tick the boxes required.

    Hi and welcome, few folk on here have done self builds and some really stunning like @Ralph-n-Bev. I'm sure Ralph or Bev will be along and can give you a link to their thread.

    Re joining club...gets a better rate? Not sure why? So having agreed to do came here. They said they didn't need to check I out but if I ever put a claim in it would need to be there to validate.

    Hello Welcome to fun, see you are not far from us, lots of information on here look at the self build section, ask as many questions as you need that's what the forum is about. You have 5 free posts then you will need to be a full member as your insurance man recommended , and have full access to all the information you should want. :pink:

    Re Carol....are you saying I have to post five times and then upgrade to gain the qualification....the company recommended this as one where there would be no membership fee....not that I'm against paying a fee if needed.

    Hiya welcome to the club. It's well worth the £15 a year to join MHF.
    You'll get discounts and so much help and advice , for everything.
    Ralphs just finished our self build. Though it's not in the self build bit , yet. We've asked Jim if he can move it.
    But here's a link. http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/rb-panel-van-conversion-begins.100614/ you might find it interesting .
    We plan on keeping "Pug" for ever , so we didn't scrimp on anything. Motorhoming is a great hobby. We love it.

    Hi, no, you have 5 free posts in which you can ask any questions, after that you can't make any more until you are a full member it is £15 a year, for that you get access to all the discounts, rally's and ask as many questions / join in, as you want, there are no moderators just members and Jim who started the site so it's really easy going.
