Hi all... We are seasoned travellers on our BMW R1200GS motorcycle having ridden in Europe every year since 2003... The last few times mostly Santander ferry to Spain - meandering down to the Med and back etc.. but also done the other "usual" routes for bikers - through Chunnel to France and across to the Swiss, Austrian and Italian Alps along with the Black forrest area of Germany. We're looking to purchase a MH sometime after March 2015: I'll be hitting 55 and plan to take an early pension and lump sum etc... Hence! Cathy will be still working - so we are planning to be regular "weekenders" and annual holiday motor-homers - in the short to medium term. Since the decision to consider owning a MH - I have been intensively researching motorhomes of all kinds (via tinternet), reading stuff on here and other Forums etc.. Looking at types, layouts... problems and issues.. and getting to grips with trying to understand the jargon... I've visited a few dealers in the Lincoln, Newark and Nottingham areas over the past week or so and We ( wife and I ) visited the recent Lincoln show and also the NEC - to see what they look like "in the flesh" so to speak... both new and used. The one thing I've fathomed so far - and based on some vans i've looked at - we will be spending a few quid more than we originally thought we were going to!... So - if all goes to plan - I (we) will be giving up the MC for a MH. Watch this space!..
