    We are Jon and Debs, both in our late 50's but 25 at heart. Spent 20 years plus Caravanning with the kids who have now grown up and fled the nest. Bought a boat 5 years ago and love doing that. Hired a motorhome in Canada in August and got the bug. Bought a little Elddis Autoquest 140 in Jan and cant wait to get started.

    Hi Joncris pleased to ''meet'' you. Only got the van last Saturday so no pictures yet but working on it. Busy buying stuff to put in the van, Debs will see the bills from Motorhome shops instead of marinas for a while !! Yes we certainly do like a beer/wine/gin or two. Just started a Gin and Tonic diet I have lost 2 days already !!!

    Hi and welcome our first van was an elddis and loved it.
    I wouldn't buy to much to start with get out in it and take a pen and paper and write down things you need as you go so many of us have bought what we thought we needed to end up not using it.

    Hi & welcome :hi:

    Being as you've had caravans and boats at least you'll have a bit of an idea what you'll need.
    We've recently swopped to a mh and been surprised how similar yet how different the two are :D

    Have fun :)

    Essex -- channel -- GO. Boldly go where no boat can go.

    That was why we ditched the idea of boat and went MH.

    Two good investments, one more expensive than the other but both go 'hand in hand !'
