Good morning, everyone!

I’m Lee, and I’m here because of a recent stroke of good luck! My wife and I were planning to get our first Motorhome in a few years’ time, once the kids are off to Uni and not around to spoil our fun. ;)

But our timeline has been moved up a bit because on Thursday I won one in a raffle (Best £16 I ever spent!) It’s a 3 year-old, beautiful condition, 7-berther; since then I’ve been reading up on everything, trying to get the hang of all the terms and working out what questions I need to ask, because until you deep dive, you don’t know enough about what you don’t know to find out what it is you don’t know. You know?

I’ve had a brief wander around this forum, and it seems like a great place! Everyone seems very knowledgeable and friendly (except for that one person... they know who they are! :LOL:)

Aaaaaanyway. Hi!

Congratulations on your win .. very nice.

One thing to check is your driving licence .. I assume if 7 berth the van is over 3500Kg mgw so you will have to have C1 catagory to cover the weight.

No, I checked. It’s under 3500Kg, so I’m covered. Honestly, there is so much to learn about these things! It’ll take some time, but I’ll get there.

Lucky you, enjoy.

It may be a 7 berth but you will not be able to carry 7 people due to payload restrictions, have a look at Jim's video.

Hope your not planning to use it as a 7 berth as I think you will have very little payload with 7 people in it even if it’s legal to carry 7 people. But a motorhome for £16 congratulations and welcome if you know which motorhome it is post on here and someone will be able to help with anything you want to know
