This is aimed at those who have had to give up the "Motorhome" life... ie..

Health reasons, Financial or what ever...

But still like to browse Motorhome Fun...

What do you miss and why..??
.......................................................................................................................................................

Me obviously health issue`s...... Money is NOT everything..

After well over 50 years, getting on to over 60 years, Tenting/Caravaning/Rv`ing/Eurovans...

And spending months and months home and abroad on the road..... I miss

Rally`s - Meeting like minded people seeing different places - Camaraderie friendship, the list is endless..

I do pop in here as much as I can.... but.... and it`s a big but.. It NO WAY makes up for what we had and did..

It`s a very lonely life away from "Motorhoming" ..... Enjoy it while you can..... :hugs:

What about you "Once were a Camper"... :wub:

Is it only me that has had to give up ??

Perhaps I am an odd one...... but really do miss it even after only a few months..

Might have to buy an old banger motorhome even with no MOT and just stick it on the drive and pretend we are away... :RollEyes::laughing:

Really miss camping in the desert. Different.
Yes know the feeling of total peaceful quietness been to wadi rum 3 times now Lawrence definitely had something would love to take the motorhome down to Jordan but I imagine things could get too lively once one crossed the boarder from Turkyie in to Syria.

Newbie. Motor home experience began on 1/8/2020.
No it isn't only you. I/we have paused our plans, albeit we had only just got started. I wasn't prepared to leave ours on the drive only being used infrequently. It may be just for the time being until my better half gives up work or maybe something will happen that changes our lives and allows us to do it 'properly'. Who knows what the future holds!

I feel like we have given up on a dream to tour Europe from top to bottom enjoying the days, weeks and months free from the 'shit' life throws at us all. For now we are 'motor-homeless'. But I will continue with my membership until such time as we win the euromillions jackpot :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:.

On a serious note, I enjoyed most of our brief sojourn into motorhoming life and hope we can resume at some point before the end.....................

I miss the dream.

No you are not the only one old-mo and I know how you feel we sold up a couple of years ago as I was struggling with my MS I hated seeing it sat on the drive . I’d been motorhoming since the 80’s and caravanning since I was a child.
I still miss travelling especially going over to Spain for the winter and spending a few weeks inFrance and Germany in the summer.
We may buy another but who knows.

Mo , as Brian said a few years back he was losing his mojo and finally packed in his RV life, I also no longer have the enthusiasm to travel as I did . We go away for a week every month but it used to be weeks at a time, I guess it’s an age thing as it’s easier to stay closer to home.
