    Well after ages of saving, looking, dreaming etc I`ve gone and bought my first moho. It`s a Hymer B544 bought from funster Portland. A great couple to deal with so big thanks to Derek and June (y)
    Now I`ve just got to figure everything out, he explained everything but of course most went in one ear and out the other ! He did say I could keep in touch so no doubt I`ll have some numty questions for him when I`m stuck.
    I`m off to start reading all the instruction books now ............:eek::eek::eek:

    When you have read the instruction book, remember people on here can still advise you.

    I have never found an instruction book that explains everything.

    Good luck and welcome!(y)

    Yes it`s sitting on the drive now and i`m looking forward to having a play around tomorrow !
    I live only about 8 miles from Derek so it`s been really convenient (others i liked the look of were miles away usually Dorset or Hampshire !) Never went to look thought as too far away.

    Welcome,

    nine months after buying my van I have finally read the instructions....the control panel had a switch 'arret' and 'marche' (stop/ go in French) - the van is French.....was going to ask the forum what it was for.......instructions show wiring to panel..................the switch is marked 'not connected' !
    :doh::doh::doh::doh:

    so ask away, there are no dumb questions
