Thank you Janine , Movan and Cat53 ; she is tiny but has all i need and My business is re upholstering camper/caravans and motorhomes so when I got her i did out the interior :)
She was off the road when i bought her and had 12 owners in the last twelve years so was unloved. I had a stainless steel exhaust made for her and my son made sure she was mechanically sound. I still have to sort out a new leisure battery and solar panel set up but the charge she holds at the moment is ok for charging up my mobile phone and i use gas for cooking and fridge and lights on batteries for now.

Hi Poppi and welcome to Fun.
You have done well to get your name on the list for the Dorset Fun Rally as it really was a fab week last year and a great crowd. You will find a good few other solo travellers there but you won't ever feel alone as each day people got together and looked out for each other like one big family. I went as a virtual newbie but made treasured friends that I am staying in touch with. Don't let that be your first meet though, it is a long time from now until June !

There don't seem to be many meets arranged in the south-west but we can make them happen. It is so beautiful down here in Devon you are right that it is daft to always travel so far, and Cornwall tends to be forgotten in winter which is what I think makes it all the more attractive (too full up in summer for my liking). There are plenty of quiet moors and beaches waiting to be visited now and many that are more easily accessible for our smaller vans. The weather drove me home last night from my latest trip to Westward Ho!, Bude and Dartmoor but I shall be off again just as soon as this wind settles. Hope I get to meet up with you and your dinky camper real soon.
Welcome to motorhomeFun !

Thank you so much simply
I am hoping to go away a lot between now and then ; I have joined a few groups to try to find my "niche" and get the most of fairly local meets. I like meets with a campfire in the evening to make the dark evenings a more sociable occasion instead of people being shut away in their own motorhomes watching tv (which can be done at home) maybe have a sing song or just chat.
Perhaps I'm asking too much?

Not asking too much, sounds good to me. I enjoy being social and love the simple things that are provided by mother nature - splendid views, sun on my face, wind in my hair kind of things. See my avatar - no, it's not actually a sunset, that's sunrise which I love even more. You'll be delighted to know I never watch tv, it bores me silly so I have not even owned a television for at least 15 years !
