I joined a few days ago but didn't see an intro thread until now. I have been Motorh0ming for about 4 years, before that I had a caravan while my kids were growing up. My partner had never even been camping as a child so we bought a 23 year old Kontiki as our first van to see how he would get on and he loved it, we haven't looked back since. I loved the Kontiki but it didn't have power steering so I found it was quite heavy to park and handle for an over the 50's female. We now have a Bessacarr E495, since we got it I never seem to be home I'm always off gallivanting with the dogs. But it's back to reality in a couple of weeks and back to work after a year off, we are off to Cornwall for a week, it will probably be the last time for a while apart from the odd weekend.
