    if a man from Mars was to read this forum he would be astounded ,
    eBay scams, rouge dealers, incompetent mh builders, grey water, black water, clean water filling, hookup probs, backing into things, parking fines, height barriers, wifi probs, campsites dearer than b&b, tunnel dearer than Ryanair, tyre prices through the roof, gassing, getting robbed, immigrants hanging underneath, and the big one DAMP, whatever else, Iv missed "why do we do it"

    We do it cos it's FUN
    Yes people do have issues motorhoming, but I'm sure the vast majority have a great time most of the time
    Imagine if the same Martians looked at a marriage guidance website..... They'd wonder how the human race is still here

    Because we've worked bloody hard all our lives & choose to spend it this way. Make our own decisions. Go where & when we want. Spend what we want. Make fantastic friends. The good out ways the bad. (y)(y)(y)(y)(y):giggler:

    1. Fun and enjoyment


    2. No drive or expensive taxi to/from airport
    3. No getting to airport hours before flight, queuing for check in, facing miserable security checks and staff.
    4. Sitting with knees squashed against seat in front for hours
    5. Having prat in seat in front drop it right down on me for 4 hours or more, and having yo get steward to order them to raise it while we eat after a please failed to work on the usually drunk occupant.
    6. Having to queue for hours at immigration at some foreign airport.
    7. Worrying whether the hotel we have been sold, and the room type we gave booked, will be the one we get

    Had enough yet,

    If I add to fun and enjoyment France and Europe generally for wonderful motor home holidays.

    That's why I do it. ;););)
