    Hi and welcome.
    Hears your first bit of advice, when choosing a motorhome, choose it for yourselves first and family second.
    Have a great time looking for your van and don't worry about asking questions.
    I can't help with Studland but hopefully someone will be along to help soon.
    You can't be lost if you don't know where you're going.

    Hi, Due to caring responsibilities am unable to get out as much this year, and I miss it, stumbling across places you would never otherwise visit is my favourite thing. On the van, I value storage space over an oven or microwave, which has so far only been used as a bread bin. The only other thing is the ability to have a permanent bed. Its good that the missus can sleep in and I can move about, also not having to make the bed every day is good for scruffy types like me. You can also use the bed to park stuff out of the way or spread an OS map out on. The van is based on the Eldis 125 not too large and under the bed at the back is a storage area accessible from outside which I also like.
    I picked the van at the Birmingham show, it was good to compare the range of vans available on the same day, once we had worked out some must haves and priorities to narrow things down a bit.
    Good Luck

    Well, thank you all for your kind welcomes. Colin, the H may well be revealed. We actually ran out of spaces.

    Christine and Craig.

    Ps. The H isn't very interesting really.

    The choice of van is VERY personal, but everything in the van is at the expense of something else.
    In other words, you must decide exactly what is important to YOU.
    Do you need a microwave or more storage, do you prefer a fixed bed or are you happy to use the sofas, do you have any children to consider, how independent do you want to be, are you prepared to fit solar panels for electricity or are you happy to plug into the mains at a campsite.
    There are literally thousands of options available to you, so donít go buying the first van you see. Take your time, maybe come along to a Meet, if there is one near you, and most people are happy to discuss their vans and show you round, with maybe a coffee as well!
    Or go along to the Motorhome Show at the NEC and wander in and out of hundreds of different shapes, sizes and design options, under one roof.
    The world is your oyster, take your time, enjoy choosing and most of all........ have fun!

    You'll find loads of useful and entertaining information here. There are occasional spats but that's all part of the entertainment!

    I'm sure you will love motorhoming and wild camping in particular.

    The POI map on the website is great but definitely get the app onto whatever device you use, it is the business. Then use Google Earth to further explore the areas that you're interested in.

    You may have guessed, we're complete novices, total campervan virgins. But neither of us have been so excited about a new adventure as we are about this one. We're going to buy our van, probably this summer, but we have so much to learn, this is where you guys (hopefully) come in. We're going to comb these threads first, then start a "Stupid Question" thread in the hope that you will take pity on a pair of eejits and help out. For example, we haven't a clue what the difference is between a 2 or 3 way fridge, You get our drift?

    Still reading? I'll go to the foot of our stairs! Maybe we could become friends.

    Kindest regards,

    Christine and Craig
    welcome to the house of fun, ok pj
