    Hi All,

    Although I have had a folding Camper for 10 + years now, we have just bought a Sunlight A72 from the NEC show and are eagerly awaiting its arrival in late Nov / early Dec.
    My wife; Jane and I are really excited to start a new chapter to our camping and leisure time with our two dogs; Ruby the lovely gentle Black Lab and Finley our manic and crazy Chocolate Lab.
    We are based on the South Coast in Hampshire and go to the New Forest often.
    Hope I can tap into your in-depth knowledge and gain as much as we can.

    Look forward to speaking again soon.
    Michael

    Welcome, we lived in Portsmouth for a few years and loved it, also have black and choc lab, but opposite of yours black one is crazy, chocolate is plodding gentle old girl. Oh and a Golden Retriever who wants to be a lab.

    Hi.gif and a warm welcome. We joined this forum 5 years ago when we bought our motorhome. The advice we have been given has been invaluable. We've recovered the cost of membership many times over with the money-saving tips we have received.

    As someone who also switched from folding campers straight to a motorhome, you will especially appreciate the speed of set up and packing away, and not having to worry about rain on the night before you leave. Much as we loved our Pennines, I used to hate having to fold wet canvas into the body, then set it up again at home to dry out. Happy camping and welcome to the world's best site. Gary

    Hello and welcome from me too... :) I won a folding campervan in a competition once and had wonderful weekends away in it .................... but the motorhome is better by far. Look forward to meeting you both in the future. :)

    Thanks for all the Welcome messages. I have been trawling through the mine field of information here on topics that appear close to me; Security, locks alarms and all that. There is soo much to take in, it is probably a good job i have 6 weeks to wait. Hopefully I will be armed with all the info I need and can sit back and join in the FUN.

    Yours Aye
