    Hi everyone we are complete novices to motor homes, we plan to buy ourselves one in the month or so but can't decide on what layout !! Fixed bed or not !! We're planning to get used it living in for short breaks over the summer and then hopefully set off on tour of Europe next spring .

    Hi and welcome

    Choices, choices there are too many choices

    My advice, do NOT set yourself a time deadline as you will buy in haste and it will be wrong choices.

    Keep searching you will instinctively know when you find the right one, as soon as you step in it it will feel like home and that you have owned it forever.

    We took two years to decide but maybe that was a bit too long! We like the fixed bed but it does take a big chunk of living space. I think trekkin is right - you just know when it's the right one. Enjoy the search!

    Hello and welcome.

    We were ate the SECC show today and of all the new vans only one came anywhere near the van we have now :) Same make as the one we have now as well.

    Take your time in deciding as there is no hurry. When you do look at van take a notebook and camera as it all starts to blur.

    Welcome.
    Look at as many as you can. Smell them. Sit in them . Lay in them . Stand in he shower and bend for the soap. Sit on he loo and do the motions. Not literally ! Check for elbow and knee room etc.
    We're selling ours soon as Ralphs doing a conversion. King size over cab bed. Doesn't eat Into lounge Space.
