    Well, we joined the site on Thursday and introduced ourselves and said we'd been looking for the right van conversion for 18 months without any luck.... Would you believe it, on Friday we saw one and this morning picked it up!!! This site must be good luck as well as being full of lovely people and great advice!

    Only question now is, what the heck do we do now! Sahara.JPG

    Just go locally to start. Find out what you need then widen your horizons. Try and get used to camping without electric. Opens up do many more places to camp, a fun rally perhaps??? Welcome :)

    It must be fate. Congratulations. Get out to a local spot. Get to know all the knobs and switches etc.
    Become members on here , then the worlds your lobster. If you don't you only get to do a few posts. Then become a read only member. There's far to much fun to be had just to be one of those.

    As others have said already, the most important thing for you to do is get out and enjoy your new motorhome. If you can't manage a full on trip away yet, go out for day trips at the weekends. It's a great feeling to watch all the people in their cars going home for tea just as you think about getting the kettle on and sitting down to a meal in beautiful surroundings at your mobile picnic table :D
