Hi and welcome to Fun. :welc:

Get used to your new motorhome, perhaps a night or two close to home in case you can't work something or forget to take something essential.

Then venture as far afield as you want.

Ask any questions on here --- there is a huge amount of knowledge, experience and technical expertise ( tho not from me!)

It really is a great way to travel. I full timed in mine for a year and given the choice to do it, I would, no hesitation.

Hello and welcome. You'll probably be asking all sorts of questions that you might think silly. Don't worry ! This is the place to ask them. Most newbies feel like that.

Meets are 'get togethers' organised on here all over the country (and beyond) You will have to fork out the £10 subscription, but it will be the best £10 you'll ever spend. You may have seen the number of motorhomes that descend on Malvern when they hold it there each year, otherwise it's a great place to meet other motorhomers discover more about them, make new friends, buy interesting items/accessories (some useful, others less so) and usually there is entertainment thrown in. Whats not to enjoy?

p.s glad you are real and not an immitation newbie! Hee hee

If you look at the bar at the top of the page, you will see a 'subscribe' button. Following the instructions will give you membership of Motorhome Fun. As a Funster you will enjoy membership here which entitles you to discounts, advice from a wide membership of different people and a whole lot more (including 'meet' attendances).
Well worth it!

Hi Annie Welcome, there are lots of different clubs Motorhomes can belong to, but I can honestly say (and I belong to Camping & Caravan Club and Motor Caravaners Club) that you have managed to find the best one MOTORHOME FUN. So very well done for that.

Ask as many questions as you want make the title of your thread clear so you can get the best advice you need, lots of questions for you I expect from using bio washing liquid in your chemical toilet, to Solar panels etc. :welc:
