    Literally just picked up our first MH this week-end. A 2003 Benimar Europe 6000ST, obviously early days yet, but we are hoping to goo orf to the North Naarfuk coost this coming week-end, very excited.

    Sadly very little instructions and no manual on this van, but should be able to figure it out, eventually, quite impressed by all the gadgets fitted, auto lift lecky step, lecky roof vents/lights, air suspension, outdoor shower and barbie points, solar panel, remote waste tank dump valve, status aerial, extra wide door, twin rear view cameras, aircon, ABS, Habitation alarm and additional security locks on all doors.

    Only down side is the Oven is pathetically small and near the floor and the grill is really up high, but other than that we love it.

    Well done you, congratulations.

    We have only a small oven and grill but its perfectly adequate. It is a common problem having high level grills, although fortunately our has a lift up door. Oven/grills are not normally fitted into European vans, its only us Brits than like them.

    Will you be wild camping on your trip?

    No wild camping just yet, especially in the U.K., but I have seen these BritStops about which sounds interesting.

    Many thanks for all the welcomes, maybe we'll run into each other at some point, although not literally with any luck.

    ... p.s To get the most from the forum you will need to subscribe. It's well worth £15 and will allow you to continue posting as well as letting you into areas that non members can't access.
