    Hi everyone, got our first motorhome about a month ago. Talked about getting one for a long time but Christine (wife) now refuses to tent it !
    Got 19 year old Hymer and needed a few bits sorted, clutch started slipping on first trip out, was expecting it to need replacing soon but hoped for a bit longer than 40 miles !
    Anyway new clutch and actuator, cam belts , wheel bearings, toilet solenoid , oil and filters changed and two new tyres and we are ready to roll !
    Second trip soon , just a one night stop away doing a motorcycle enduro but hope to to many more days away asap.
    France next year !

    Doug and Christine

    Welcome to yet another biker. Once we had "hobbies" under our avatars, this showed a remarkable number of bikers in here.

    But the Hymer, spend a few bob on it and it will repay with years of service every bit as good as a new £100K model.
