    Hi to everyone . My wife and I have just purchased our first motorhome . It is an Autocruise Gleneagle. We will not take charge of it until the end of September but are very excited but also a bit apprehensive as well with regard to driving something this big. Also we are intending to tow our trike that we have just purchased but as yet are unable to ride it very we'll as neither of us are motorbike users! I hope we haven't bitten off more than we can chew.:eek:

    :welc: Don't stress over the driving - after a few minutes on the road you will wonder what all the fuss was about. If you do have any real worries book a taster session at an HGV driving school and they will give you a lesson in a van about the same size as the motorhome you will have.

    Sure as hell you've got a healthy appetite.

    How can you fail with that attitude.

    Don't worry about it babs. This is probably the first time that I have posted as well. Find the " new members" under the Forums heading and post one there. ( I think ) :)
