    We live in a area close to Beaulieu , and the New Forest. Only a mile or so from the Lepe Country park.

    We have been motorhoming on and off for last 5 years. Must confess we went back to a caravan for a while , but found it stressful after having Motorhomes. Couldnt get to grips with the hooking up, all though it was pretty straight forward, we missed the getting in and going that you enjoy with a Motorhome.

    We recently attended the Great Western show for the first time. We are now hooked, didnt realise what fun could be had. We went with the Ccc. No problem there except we didnt know anyone.

    Thinking of attending the end of year show, What can we expect? Would love to go with the Motorhome fun group If possible. Maybe someone could point us in the right direction.

    Hi there Bettsy

    We are going to the season finale show at Lincoln and are really looking forward to it. We went to last month's Norfolk Motorhome Show and had a great time, this was the first such show we have been to and we found everyone very friendly.

    At Lincoln we will have the benefit of the Fun marquee, the Funster Band and the fabled bacon rolls - whats not to like?

    I just had a quick look at the Lincoln show thread (here) and there are already 118 Funsters booked in. As the limit is 160 you need to book asap if you want to go. Follow the instructions in the first post of the Lincoln show thread.

    See you there.

    Paul

    Hi

    Welcome to the forum.

    We are also newbies, Not even collected our motor home yet, we have had touring caravans in the past and then 3 years ago went to a static. We are missing the touring side of things so much.
    We are also thinking of joining up with all you guys out there at the of the end of year show, but tno idea what to expect.

    Welcome from a wintery Yorkshire, whatever happened to the Summer, and Christmas is still 18 weeks away :party2::party2:
    Great avatar, two Spits and a Hurricane, hopefully. I am sure you will enjoy Lincoln, although I haven't attended a rally myself yet I have been to a couple of meets, there is a difference apparently but still a great set of funsters.
    I will be at Lincoln myself but just as a day visitor with my car, I may summon up the courage to make myself known there, take care and have fun.
    Norman.
