    Forgetting your passport / credit card / family. Everything else is easily bought / replaced.

    You need to be careful about enjoying yourself too much; Because once you've sampled the roads/sites/aires/ that France has to offer, motorhoming in the UK just never seems as good :)

    Have a great trip (y)

    Hmm overloading on Leffe beer and lovely Wine, to be honest I'm relatively new to owning a MH ( purchased last Oct ) my first outing ever was to Belgium for a week , then 7 1/2 weeks touring France.

    My advice is to plan where you wish to go and arrive early enough to enjoy at least some of day , try not drive at night.

    Enjoy
