Te ups and downs of being a new motorhomer. - Advetures with "Willow"

This story happened on: 26/04/2012

Hi everyone very new to this and enjoying  it very much.  Not always getting it right though.  We bought our Hymer Eriba Camp in March.  She is called "Willow" and we love the old gal very much.   Had fun getting gas for her and fixing the indoor water feature which appeared after we bought her.  She was dry when we put the damp meter on her.  Faulty fitted ceiling vent.   She is German and is left hand drive, I have not been brave enough yet to have a go at driving her.  Every were we have been "Malcolm" the meerkat and "Fifi" the purple poodle have been with us and are admired by everyone.  They are our motorhome pets.  We enjoy being waved at by fellow travellers and everyone we have encountered on the road loves our van. So Far we have being to two wonderful sites one at Hereford and the other at Cirencester.  First one was a CL and the second aCC very different.  Our grandaughter Mimi has been with us once and she loves camping as long as she can use the site facilities. If any one as any tips that can help us in any way we would be more than grateful.  Bit different to owning a boat, which we did years ago.  Jo

Hello, we are ex boat owners too.  Like the camper much more as you can get to many more interesting places than in a boat. Take it across the channel it adds a whole new dimension and dont be put off by the problems; as far as I'm aware we all have them.  Just enjoy it!
