    Hi! So excited to be connected to such a great community here. We are 2 soon to be free of the 9-5 grind ladies as we head into full time motorhoming! We are yet to buy our travelling beast, but looking and finding some fun options out there. By June we will be house free - wheels only home!
    We've already gleaned some great info - so thanks already, and we look forward to hearing more wisdom, and in time offering some back.
    Now... time to start another thread on our questions relating to full time motor homing! (Is that the right phrase?!)
    Thanks all!

    First piece of advice is always "don't burn your bridges" 'till you've given it a try, but looks like yours is smouldering nicely right now.

    Hello and welcome to Fun, look forward to following your story of how you get on.

    One thing I would say take out full membership to fun and you will always have a large motorhome community at your finger tips.

    If you read a lot about dealers you could do a lot worse than give John Cross a try, never heard a bad comment about them, and of course you will not be tied to what area you buy from as you will only have to worry about your wheels. ::bigsmile::thumb:

    Hi and Welcome..

    I am also a fulltimer (4 years now) and love the lifestyle.
    I hope you enjoy it at least half as much as I do :thumb:

    Hi and welcome from newbies Elaine and I
    The only advice we could give is be carefully in what you buy as every body we have met is informing us it takes till your 3rd van to get it perfect
    We are on number 2 and very close but not quiet there yet

    Enjoy

    Hi beclisa, welcome to the fun house!::bigsmile:

    Have you ever actually owned, or used a motorhome before? If not, then be careful as it is sooooo easy to get it wrong.

    Make sure you are fully aware of ALL the implications of living in a motorhome full-time, it is completely different to having a trip in one for a month or two.
