    So pleased to have found this group. We have just stopped working, hate the word retired, and have just (3 days) ago, bought our first real motor home. It's a 2010 Hobby Toskana Exclusive and we are gearing up to spending long periods touring Europe. We've done a bit of campervanning in the past, having had use of an old Mobilevetta Driver 52, but this time we're fully comitted.
    No doubt we will have loads of questions, but I will try and read the topics ahead of asking the obvious. :Doh:

    Hi and welcome from another Hobby Toskana owner. :welcome:

    Just wondering if your username 'Spottycatz' refers to Bengals by any chance?

    Hello and welcome to Fun, great plan getting to warmer climes, but what a beautiful part of the world you have to explore as well.
    Have you checked out ACSI and Camping Cheque for touring in Europe, could save you a lot of money over the months.
    Another great saving is the £10 subscription for this site, in discounts and tips can be recouped over and over again.:welcomefunster:
