    Just purchased a motorhome for the first time yesterday and thinking well he goes nothing. I went with Comfort insurance and it's a TALBOT AUTOTRAIL CHEYENNE RICO MOTORHOME 1994 reg. It's quite old but it is 25000 miles on the clock. Going to be collecting it later tomorrow and see what take it for a test drive camp over the weekend. I will be having to learn a new way of life now and get my head around how everything works. Does anyone have tips and advice or wisdom they can impart with regards to the Talbot motorhome? It's quite old and I drove it around for a test drive and the engine sounded sweet. $_57.JPG $_57 (1).JPG $_57 (2).JPG $_57.JPG $_57 (1).JPG $_57 (2).JPG

    Looks nice , clean and tidy . And very solidly made unlike a lot of new vans around . Get yourself to a meet/rally As oldmo says, and join the Talbot owners club too. I'm sure you'll have many happy trips in your new toy.
    Welcome to the forum too.

    Looks a nice clean & tidy van.
    My suggestion is to take it out and play with everything to familiarise yourself.
    I went away for a night on my own on my first outing and glad I did, as I couldn't get the electric or heating to work. I could see the vapour from my breathing it was that cold. Would have put my wife off for good. Following day, I realised how it all worked!
    You make mistakes which aren't funny at the time but are hilarious to look back on afterwards, so just go and enjoy yourselves in it.
    You'll get plenty of advice on here if you get stuck with owt
