    A big hello to you all,

    This is Mandy & Malcolm we live in Shropshire with our dog Bodie the Beagle. Malcolm is a retired fireman and I have a children's entertainment business which is mainly weekend work leaving the rest of the week for motor homing.

    We first discovered motor homing last year when we hired an eldiss for 5 days and stayed in Keswick and Whitby, we enjoyed it so much that we went to the NEC show in September to look around. Looking at the layouts we decided we preferred an end lounge layout and looked at the second hand market. We opted for the Elddis Autoquest 145 and found one 3years old with just over 4,000 miles on the clock. We have not had time to go out with it much at the moment because of the weather but will be going to France in September.

    This forum is a mine of information and good advice and we are really looking forward to getting to know everybody and sharing our motorhome experiences with you all.

    Thankyou for your warm welcome.

    What part of Shropshire are you from Janine? We are near Newport. We know the Isle of Wight well Terry & Ann as Malc's sister lived in Shanklin for 7 years and we would visit around 5 times a year.

    We will be around northern France the first 2 weeks of September so might bump into you when we have figured out a route.

    Nice to know others who have the Autoquest James & Sue looking forward to lots of hols in it.
