    Hi everyone. Have just joined the forum. Am looking to buy a MH later this year, having previously toured Europe for a couple of years in 2003/5. That was our first experience of motorhoming and we absolutely loved it, maybe because we emigrated from the UK at the same time! Just to make life complicated. We had a Hymer B584 and have always wished we could have held on to it.

    Anyway, planning to get back in soon. We now live in Crete so I'm a little nervous about how easy it is going to be to find the right MH. We certainly won't find anything here. We want a used LHD, so I was thinking the best choice will be in Germany. Any thoughts appreciated. Andrew.

    Hello and welcome.

    I agree your best choice will be to go to Germany or Belgium. We imported a used German van into the UK last summer p, using lots of advice and guidance from this forum. No idea how easy or difficult it is to register in
    Greece though.

    Good luck in your search and look forward to hearing about your future adventures.

    Hi Andrew, we used to live in Crete and go back regularly for usually 8/10 weeks at a time often in the motorhome. Whereabouts are you in Crete?

    Hi. We live in NE Crete, on the coast at a place called Milatos. About half way between Ag Nikolaos and Heraklion. When are you next back here? Andrew

    Know it well. We have often stayed in Sissi and popped down to Milatos, in fact we were there in October. We are due back around May ish. We have an apartment in Mavros Kolimbos which is about 4 klms outside Makri Gialos on the Ierapetra side. Good luck with your motorhome search. Keep posting and let us know how you get on.
