We collected our new m/h last week, a Pilote Explorateur G782 Diamond Edition! Quite a mouthful, but I suppose it need to be as it's huge, we love it already. We are yet to name her. I like nautical names, Moby dick? Leviathan or just the great white whale! My seven year old wants to call her

George...go figure.

We went to Stirling last Saturday night and ended up weathering a major storm our first trip out! Worried? Not a jot, the wagon performed seamlessly, snug as a bug in a rug, although the wind did her best to rock her about, which was impressive as she weighs five tonnes.

We are now planning the Scottish Bike show this w/e in preparation for two weeks in Europe during the April School holidays; cannae wait.

In the intervening time I have been fettling, tuning, provisioning and making it a true mobile home, It could become an all consuming past time and topple motorbikes and diving off their pedestals.

A good point well made Komrad. But in this non binary, non gender specific, self defined sexuality, pronoun-fascistic, don't you oppress me age we cannot judge, confine or obstruct! I will call it moonchild; No...moonbeing! Child? What was I thinking, slipped up there...

You however are required to report to your local government control centre for re-education and metal realignment. We will ensure the safety of your family and assets. By Order.

But I do like Georgie. She'd have to be a big Girl...

11yrs, but many years a tugger.
Any name has to be female, any vehicle does, because it carries people as a woman carries a baby. Well, that’s what my Daddy told me. :gum:

When I was 28 we bought a motorhome to make diving "more enjoyable" for my then girlfriend, now my wife

Weekends away, not diving took over and I went from a "keen" (mad) diver to an occasional diver quite quickly lol

Hear ya! I used to be positively messianic about all things diving related, worked my ticket up to Instructor and then went HSE professional. I haven't dived in 5 years! A salutary lesson in NOT taking a hobby professional... But I still have me bikes and now a great big F**k off motorhome to waste my money on! I just can't stay away from expensive hobbies. I often ask myself why I couldn't have taken up something cheap like chess, or rambling!

Ahhh...boats, yes. A wood lined hole in the ocean into which one pours an endless stream of money! Had enough of them in my old profession. Although, prior to buying the pilote I looked into a boat. Two things put me off, the kids are still too young and the mooring fees at my local marina are just to high to justify; £14/m/mn! I'll just let all my tickets quietly expire...
