    Hi to all.

    after much searching on internet, at last we came across this fabulous forum which has a wealth of helpful information, advice, and a really good "feel".

    Following on from many years of camping under canvas, now I'm in my mid 50's and retired, its probably time we grew up and got a motorhome! We were becoming increasingly envious o folks in motorhomes and campers during a recent trip to North West Scotland, where we endured biblical levels of rain and howling gales....Although our tent didn't leak, the rising groundwater was a bigger problem so when we returned, we took the bull by the horns...

    When I was in my youth, my parents had a VW bayfront type 2 Westphalia, then a couple of further VW campers and it wasn't until they were well into their 70's that they stopped. So an upgrade to a motorhome from canvas was psychologically a very easy step....

    Over many years of a general interest in motorhomes, we had a fair idea of what we might fancy so after a final bit of research and looking around we have gone off the deep end and specced up & ordered a Hymer Mli 580. There are only 2 of us (plus 2 greyhounds who LOVE camping) so we didn't really need the 4 berths that the 580 gives us, but did very much fancy the fixed single bed layout that the 580 gave.

    The hard part now is a long wait until Q1 2016 when we take delivery of Millie (as she has been called), although it gives us a lot of time to plan where we will be going next year :):D:D and beyond. So far we have so many ideas we're going to have to start thinning them down or sell everything and become full timers(y)

    No doubt we'll be posting a host of dumb questions, but meantime very much enjoy trawling through the pearls of wisdom and wit on the forum.
