We're half way through a very difficult year and with my wife fighting (and currently beating) cancer it's made us have a good look at how we spend our time together as a family. We've been enjoying the benefits of buying a merlin annual pass and our next big plan is to buy a motorhome so we can have even more adventures together. We have 2 children, a boy 9 and girl 7. The plan is to get a motorhome for next summer and other than wanting something with 4 seatbelts and separate beds for the kids we are quite open to ideas. The budgets going to be around 5 to 10k depending on when my wife can get back to work and to begin with we will be aiming for lots of weekends away but want to build up to touring France and beyond. So far we've been looking on ebay but want to go to a few shows to get some ideas. Does anyone know: 1) Any shows worth visiting, we are in Manchester? 2) Any where else to look within our budget that isn't ebay?
