WelcomeJanuary 19, 2018 at 2:52 pm #610
Hiya! Well, that’s an hour of my life I won’t get back! What a kerfuffle! But I’m in at last…..cheers!
I’m Elaine Tiffin, but prefer my username! 64, I’m an ill health retired midwife & nurse.
Mum of 3 adult daughters, youngest has my 6 grands. A couple of years after I retired, my ex hubby retired too (he is a good mate!)
With our pension lump sums, we decided, since we could never afford to rent French villas again, we’d buy a Yank RV with room to have a bedroom each & to enable us to take our 2 Basset hounds. That was 2012.
Apart from Meester Chris being struck down with bladder cancer in 2014 & a year off in 2015 due to his major op, we’ve had long summers in France since…..plus UK trips when the mood takes us…..which is often!
We’ve done 2 meets so far (try having them when we’re in UK Richard?) & hope to come to more…..awesome making new friends…..I’m a social animal, but Meester is the reticent sort!
Looking forward to this forum & making more friends…..Happy days all!January 19, 2018 at 3:36 pm #626
Well done 👍👍👍January 19, 2018 at 4:42 pm #629AnonymousInactive

Hi all , We are from Norwich and have had our RV Santara for 3 years. We are retired and try to spend 6 months away a year.Unfortunately in the last couple of years we haven’t ventured too far from home. Hopefully this will be rectified this year. Previously, in our Chieftain we spent 6 months in Spain. A site about 5 miles south of Benidorm right on the beach. Villa Joyosa. A fantastic site but not bigger enough pitches for RV’s. Previously we have stayed at L’ Estartit which is about 40 miles over the boarder to Spain. We have seen an 18 wheeler 5 th wheel at this campsite which can take good size RV,s. It’s by the beach. A fantastic site which is extremely well maintained.January 19, 2018 at 9:58 pm #662

Hi Richard et al
Just signed up after being in the Facebook group for a while.
Looking forward to exploring the website and hopefully posting a few of our adventures. Some with my Brother Lee who’s also on here.
We have a 1993 Tiffin Allegro Bay 27 that we picked up in October, but have only used once so far. Our adventures start at Easter when we’re planning a round trip for a week from here in Essex to Linc’s, then to the Peak District, then maybe back via Norfolk.
Watch this space.

We are Bob n Jules, we retired in October 2016 and set off in our Eura Mobil to spend a month touring a bit of Spain and 4.5 months in Portugal and enjoy it we did, on our return to work for the Camping and Caravanning Club as Holiday Site Assistants after 3 sites we realised that we were enjoying the life but needed a larger vehicle…..enter the Georgie Boy Persuit which took some time to get used to but we love it, the extra room whilst we are living on the road is magic. We are back in the UK after spending Feb and March in Portugal and France, getting ready for this summers work before touring Europe in the winter. You can’t miss us as we have a trailer with a Lotus seven on th back. Regards, Bob n JulesApril 18, 2018 at 8:57 pm #3385

Oh I missed this bit.
Hello, I’m Suzi. Expat living & working in Costa Blanca Spain. The OH & I stumbled over a Dodge Ram Roadtrek Forsale over here so decided to give it a new home.
Nothing worked on it when we bought it but within the first day the OH had it all up & running, except the old Fedders Aircon, so we took that out.
Now we’re done a few 1,000s kms & love it even more.
We’re here if anyone needs help or just a chat.
We’re got an extensive workshop & cover most things from electrics to upholstery.May 10, 2018 at 8:11 am #3484
SuziQ that’s good to know I see you’ve added your details to the related forum 👍👍👍October 19, 2018 at 8:28 pm #3693
we are pat and Tracey,
Pat is a fireman and I manage a home care service for the elderly, we have 3 small people, ( well small adults really ) oh and a dog – she is the biggest baby.
we don’t get to go away as much as we would like, our dream is to not be working full time but sadly we are still a slave to the wage.
we have owned two motorhomes and this year decided to get an RV after coming to one of the rv club meets and spending the afternoon on our new friends RV, we were hooked and bought one of our own .
so far we have been to Ireland and explored the UK , hopefully off to Spain next year.
we have attended a couple of the group meets, they are great fun, maybe we will see you at the next one …………..October 22, 2018 at 11:03 am #3696

Hello Richard & all.
My name is Paul Michael & My wife is Laine Michael.
We had approximately ten RV’s over a 20 year period but haven’t had one for ten years until I retired in May 2017. We now have a Damon Daybreak 3070 RV.
We have a small dog (Pixie) and our new hobby is metal detecting.
We hope to join in with some of your rallies next year and look forward to meeting you all.

Thanks for setting me up on here Richard, not sure how I managed to do the payment side and miss setting up the forum bit… lol
I’m Adrian and I have just imported a 2019 Winnebago 1700BH travel trailer from the USA
I got it so that I could take my mother away on short breaks now that she is getting on a bit (whispers… 84 next year)
I’ve not had one for about 20 years so things have changed a bit since then.
Oh, and like Paul, I do metal detecting too when I get the chance 🙂December 29, 2018 at 3:18 pm #3738

Hi Everyone! I’m Teresa (hubby is Stuart) and we are not yet owners of an RV but will strive to be during 2019 – we just need to find the right one.
I’m a lawyer and have been for just over twenty years, however the dream is to drive off into the sunset somewhere warmer and give up the full time office job (after spending about a year full timing in the UK while working in order to save the much needed money!).
Joined the club to get ideas and experience from those who own an RV – I’m sure there is lots to learn!January 9, 2019 at 8:08 pm #3740
Well done and welcome 👍👍January 12, 2019 at 7:15 pm #3742AnonymousInactive

We have a Ford E450 (see My profile) We’ve had it 4 years now but haven’t really used it for any lenth of time until this year when we are going to set off over to Europe in October, We both retired this April after 10 or so years of hard graft we can now use the RV for what it’s for 🙂 The plan is….well, we haven’t got a plan other than, Dover to Dunkirk and head towards Manilva to spend Xmas with our nephew in spain, we will be stopping at a few dropzones so I can do some skydiving and we will come back to the UK in summertime to explore England. It’s all a bit exciting and a bit scary at the same time.
