    G'day
    I have been a motorhomer in Australia for over 10years and we are still enjoying our chosen part-time lifestyle. In 2013 we undertook a 105 day motorhome trip from Frankfurt to Frankfurt around some of the continent. It was a great experience and I would love to return and this time drive on the left side of the road around the UK. We met many "Brits/pommies" :) in Europe and enjoyed out time with Jonathan and Susan in France.
    I am a member of the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA) and regularly attend club meets in our local area around Brisbane.
    I look forward to reading your forum and gaining lots of insight into the European motorhome activities

    Yes Wanderer, those vans have quite a reputation and are not well accepted because of some of the ?????? graffiti they have as a paint scheme. I know some camp sites do not allow them to stay at all. It is a pity because many of the drivers do not like the livery but only find out the consequences after they have paid for the hire.

    I have just met Tom and Sue in "The Wizened of Oz" in a Bailey in Oz. Their FUN banner stands out like the proverbial appendages
