    Welcome to motorhome fun xxxx

    For your first motorhome I would suggest by second hand, see if you enjoy it.

    The forum is for all types of motorhome owners and those looking xx

    ask away there are lots experienced motorhomers with all types of vehicles from very small to extremely large xxxx

    Hi Daniel, the vast majority of European motorhomes are based upon a diesel engine so are rarely, if ever, converted to LPG. Many large American Motorhomes have engines over 6.5 litres in size and run on petrol so plenty of owners have them converted and can make quite a saving on running costs.

    Initially you should concentrate on the general size of motorhome you require and the way you would like the interior divided. The only way to find that out is to sit in a few. Visit as many dealers or shows as you can, and pretty soon you will discover a size and style of layout that suits you. Then you just have to find one at a price you can afford. There are lots out there, don't spend too much time looking, find what you want, buy it an enjoy:thumb: Meanwhile - Welcome to the Fun::bigsmile:

    camping charge

    I look at some site and i find the camping charge are about £12 to £15, I don't know in Europe
    As I say yesterday I am new to this but i know I want to do some touring when I retire not week-end but 3 to 6 month or more a year. Only come home in winter for Christmas.Nice dream I know. So if any of you do this type of touring I need to talk to you in more depth
    what you do for over night stop do you always use camp site? that could be expensive
    what about empty the waist if you not use the camp. Any problem for stopping over night?
    suppose some time you use it for laundry or other? do you ?:thumb:
