    Well I've gone and done it. I've traded my motorhome and Smart car for a caravan & tow car. I hope that doesn't mean that I have to cancel my membership of Motorhomefun as I've really enjoyed reading your posts and have learned so much which will be transferrable as I become a "tugger".

    All I need to do now is to sell the Brian James Micro-Max Smart Car Trailer so that I can get my new tow car in the garage.

    I've placed an Ad on here should anyone be interested in buying the trailer?

    Brian

    Thanks to everyone for their humour and good wishes as I embark on life as a “Tugger”. Hooking up isn’t something that worries me after all this is something that I’ve done all the while with my motorhome. I won’t be joining the ranks of the caravanners who seem to take forever setting up an awning fitted out with every domestic appliance that they would have at home. For me it will be corner steadies down, sat dish set up and that’s it. Somewhere to eat & sleep before heading for the hills to pursue my passion for upland walking. Sadly, all to often the motorhome wasn’t compatible with hill walking and generally too difficult to find somewhere to park in the remoter parts of the countryside.

    Brian :Smile:

    well , I am still both except I don't ever come to the uk in my 4WD and double axle caravan due to the pathetic facilities and regulations , joining the caravanners and motorhomers on camp sites isn't for me
    elsewhere I can just stop and get into the caravan , don't even need to put the steadies down ; if I want to use the car I just lift the caravan off the tow hook , unplug the electrics and off I go ..when I come back , just back under the A frame , lower onto the ball and plug in ; 2 minutes each operation ; I carry a couple of 2 level planks to pull the van onto if the ground is not level side to side [ fore and aft you just lower the nose wheel and wind ], I'm always having a gin and tonic while the motorhomers are fiddling about , levelling up and getting things out of cupboards as I well know to my cost

    and when I leave , no fastidiously packing everything away to keep the rattles down to a roar , just drive away ...and I can go pretty well anywhere in my 40ft outfit that I can in my 20ft motorhome [ because it bends in the middle ]

    often wondered what the noise level is like in the caravan as we travel !

    at the end of the day it's personal choice ...like my wife retreating into the caravan bedroom and closing the door if I'm watching sport on the satellite

    I admit if I go somewhere just overnight I use the motorhome , perhaps in the uk I would use the caravan if friends and family had the parking space for it , but they don't

    perhaps my favourite outfit was my american motorhome , but that was in n.america , but too restricting in europe ...perhaps for full timers who stay a while somewhere ,but even then I would prefer a small motorhome and a caravan

    I think you should stay a member. It'll give us somebody to talk about "You know that Brian chap? Poor bloke's lost it completely. He's only gone and sold his motorhome and bought a caravan. Just goes to show - can happen to anybody - such a nice bloke as well - it's his kids I feel sorry for - etc."

    :roflmto:

    Don't mind us - enjoy your life (in whatever obscure and eccentric way you see fit :ROFLMAO:)
