    Hi everyone!

    I am about to pick up my first ever 20ft 2 berth motorhome this week and am excited but terrified……
    I want to create lasting memories for my daughter and do lots of weekend trips, rallies etc.
    Met lots of helpful folks who have given me such valuable tips and am eager to take advice as there is so much to learn and take in.

    Lisa xx

    Well as long as it's not "mummy what does &^%$ mean ?" when you clip a wing mirror.

    We all do it - the clipping that is.

    Hi Lisa
    We introduced our daughter to camping in a 1974 VW campervan when she was 10months old and now 9 months later we are in a motorhome and love it.
    I would suggest taking favourite toys and comforts and pre plan meals and everything else will fall into place.
    I'm sure you'll get on just fine and if your stuck, there's always someone to ask on a site or on this forum.
    Good luck with your new purchase - I hope it all goes smoothly fit you all.

    Don't worry just enjoy making memories for you and your little one, for her it will become second nature and perfectly normal. :Smile:
