    Hello,

    We are new to this site but not motorhoming, we have owned a weird collection of motorhomes including the following:
    1) 1988 Bedford CF Ambulance Conversion
    2) 1983 Bedford CF Auto Sleeper Motorhome (loved that one)
    3) 1992 A Class Hymer Tag Axel LHD (Loved that one more!)
    4) 1988 Fiat Ducato Glendale Delta 6 berth (Hated every minute of ownership!!)
    5) Now a 2000 VW T4 Caravelle (Not converted but we camp happily in him.)

    I have worked for Swift Group Motorhomes in the past as a QC, I was brought up with caravans and motorhomes and am passing on the passion to my children.

    I had a Hymer tag, same year and LHD which i loved but unfortunately my wife didn't, so it had to go.

    Welcome to the forum, sounds like you have plenty of experience to pass on.

    Hello from us two too.
    When you say you own a " Vw t4 but it's not converted, but you camp happily in it"
    Is it just a panel van with front seats? And a mattress in the back ?
    We met a couple on the ferry over to the Hebredian Islands . I wonder if it's you .
    Are you going to convert it . We are , well Ralph is, converting a New lwb pug boxer. We can't wait to get out in him.

    Hi Ralph & Bev,

    Our T4 is a caravelle so it is a plush t4 with rear heaters and air con plus built in seats that fold, a bit of a day van. We also have a Khyam Motordome so can double our space, we have a clip in kitchen plus unit for the TV, a gas cooker, fire and halogen cooker, we pull the electrics directly into the van on sites and stay very, very comfy. We had an A class motorhome but could not use it daily and so was sat on the drive most of the time being unused. Looking forward to camperfest this week. Whats your interior at the moment?

    As you can see Pug is a work in progress. Infact Ralph will be posting more pics tonight . He started putting the furniture board in . The bathroom is well on the way. He is starting to look like a pvc now.
    Our other Motorhome is for sale now.

    So we haven't been out in her since the new year. We are getting withdrawal symptoms.
