    Hi everyone,
    Been browsing this site quite a bit today, very interesting community you have here, lots of experience in motorhoming with some very good tips, I have learned much already.
    We have been motorhoming for around 3-4 months and are on our third motorhome, (well we will be on Saturday), the first two had so many shortcomings that I couldn't live with so they had to go (it's only money and you can't take it...........................).
    Hope this one has everything we need but at 6 foot 3 inches it's a tall order (pun intended:Doh:), it's an Autotrail Cheyenne 840 SE 2006 vintage, nice condition with 37K on it.
    Hope to make some contributions on here in the coming months and maybe meet some of you in the not to distant future.
    Regards to all
    Cal

    Welcome to the forum. 3 motorhomes in 4 months? That's got to be a record.
    Hope this one lasts a bit longer

    Hi & Welcome from the Isle of Wight,
    yes you now when a van's not right for you , we are now on are 9th van in 35 years and twice I made the wrong decision both didn't stay with us very long one only 3 months.
    By the way we have a very excitable cocker spaniel 3&1/2 years old which could do with your help, lovely dog just manic.
    Enjoy your purchase , doubt if you like a lot of other m/h owners us included will get much actual camping in during the winter months we now tend to use it for day trips with possibly the odd one or two night camp this time of year . We can't wait for Spring to get out properly and enjoy some funster meets again.

    Hi and welcome.
    Hope our 'accidental purchase' doesn't turn out to be a mistake.
