    When will bought our motorhome we foolishly told our kids that they could use it any time they wanted so now one of the boys wants to take it to France later in the year. So how stupid am I, answers on a postcard.

    Regards

    You are not stupid - very sensible.

    Say yes of course

    Providing

    1. They do all the driving

    2. They take you along as well

    3. They pay for everything for you

    That way you get chauffeured around, treated like a king by your boys and you all have a family experience to remember in later years

    So did we. We even bought one with enough seat belts. Then they never used it.

    Ah well, it will be good to read your experiences.

    I think you need your medication changing, clearly your brain has shut down.

    We Did

    We let our Son and his partner use ours. I trust him and knew he would be extra careful and after all it is insured.

    He's 29 now and and he's always been a thoughtful and caring young boy/lad/man and we
    like the thought that we can still spoil him - he deserves it.

    Told my son he sould use it.
    Good steady driver, used to larger vehicles.
    He has 4 kids, so I bought a 4 berth family drive away awning to go with it.
    They never used it, awning still brand new, never been out of the bag.
