    Hi, Mike here. Very experienced in the automotive world. Ex international bike racer, rally driver + navigator. Run my own company making shock absorbers.

    But. I know nothing about motorhomes apart from the hundreds of ads I've looked at recently so I've signed up to try and learn before spending. I'll post my dim question(s) in

    Welcome - there are hundreds of us already here who know nothing about motorhomes but it doesn't stop us voicing our opinions. You will soon settle in and your shock absorbers could come in very handy...

    Hi Mike

    Welcome to Fun!
    You will despair at the quality of these boxes we drive around in, but enjoy yourself all the same!

    How about a range of motorhome coil-overs?!
    We can slam our rides to get under the toll height restrictions in France!
    -I'll only take 10 percent for my idea!!!!
