    I've been caravanning since I was born, but my partner is new to it all - we just bought our first motorhome last weekend, and are away off in it this weekend with the dog.

    It's nothing fancy - a 1994 Elddis Eclipse - but she's got bags of charm. Previous owners took good care of her, and bar throwing our stuff in the van, it's ready to go. Gaslow system, water heater, bike rack all present and correct, and I've a list of "things" I want to do to it as long as my arm already!

    House is like a caravan accessory shop at the mo though - new mains cable, levelling ramps, couple of clips for this, catches for that, glass hinged cover for the hob etc etc.

    It is something special, it's yours, and it brought you to the best motorhoming forum in the world, probably?, No, definitely!

    Hi Welcome to fun, may I say the very best accessory you could get to go with your motorhome would be a full subscription to Motorhome Fun for £15 you will get full access to all the resources, discounts rally's and as much information as you could wish for. :pink:
