    One of the many attractions of a motorhome is the ability to move around. Have loads of ideas having researched on here. Many thanks to all for the information re insurance/storage /alarms all very helpful(y)

    we are in our third year motorhoming, we still find ourselves treating it like a caravan which is OK for some places but not others

    good luck and enjoy the difference (y)

    you wait, it will soon fill up :D

    we had a 6.4m caravan, now got an 8m MH and our Bernese, its big but not big enough

    have you considered an awning yet?

    That has kept Bev sane and is her lifeline back to caravanning

    We do now tend to move every other day, if not every day, that is the big difference and as already mentioned, packing and moving is so quick (y)

    You get what you pay for. :smiley:The alarm and tracker is not cheap. But I'd like to enjoy my time with it knowing it'll be there when we get back from the beach. Not heard a bad word about vanbitz either(y)

    Oh spotted it a week or two ago and it's the only one he's really liked, I'd dismissed it as I think I was so focussed on a hymer....

    However when we were test driving a burstner last week he (& Joe the salesman) persuaded me to look again and we spent quite a while just pottering in it and I have to say oh was right( shush don't tell him:LOL:)

    I am really impressed by the look and feel and it drives alot nicer than a fiat. The interior is really spacious compared to the many, many other mohos we've looked at.

    Just marking big red X's on the calendar to countdown:)
