    Hi

    After what seems like a million years of camping with our tent, we have upgraded to a McLouis Glen motorhome. We haven't had the opportunity to use it yet due to some unexpected surgery but have a booked a few days away over Christmas.

    Looking forward to joining the motorhome family.

    Cheers

    TeamMarri

    Hi you will find it so much easier than camping in a tent, just pull up, swivel seats and put the kettle on, just brill (y)

    Ah yes a tent, I remember those, nasty things. All metal poles and canvas, then we had a tin tent, all legs and water containers. Much better now. (y)

    Hi and welcome to the fun. (y)
    Okay you saved 15 minutes setting up, but what then?

    Need some shopping? Is there a local bus? Can I walk to the shops? Oooh the water tank is empty? Where is the nearest tap? Will my hose reach or will I have to move again?
    Want to look around the area? Is it walk able? Is there a Bus stop nearby?

    There are so many advantages to a Tin Tent and Car, OK I can't free camp but I rarely did anyway, and you get so much more "Bang for your Bucks"
    Having had both MH and Tin Tent, it's Tugging all the way for me now
