Greetings from sunny Devon

Post by Momac on Sat Feb 28, 2015 8:11 am

Hello Everyone

Just dipped our toes in the water of motorhome ownership with a 1996 Harmony....or is it a campervan?  What is the difference?

Already read loads of helpful advice on this friendly forum in the past 2 weeks so thought we'd better say hello before posting lots of questions...believe me, this won't be the last you will hear from us!

Welcome from N.E Wales    handshake

To me the difference is - a motorhome is self-sufficient (with washroom) and a campervan is not.

Welcome to the forum from a wet  Selsdon. I have had a motorhome for five years and I am still classed as a beginner. There are always questions....questions. It's half of the fun .... when a group of motorhomers get together on a site. Never short of conversation.

Thanks for the welcome...what a friendly lot you are!   Our daughter lives in Brighton m8form8......we are hoping to take the motorhome when we visit next.  She lives in a tiny flat, and in the season the price of hotel accommodation is horrendous.  We've spotted a campsite near the marina....any good, d'you know?

That's the only camp site in Brighton down near the Marina, well that I know of not that I have actually used it myself. Have to say I would make sure you lock it up well in that area although I think the site has security cameras.   Brighton is an awful place to park in general very pricey we live just out of the city in Woodingdean. If you just come for a day visit you can park free on Warren road here opposite the cemetery and get a bus into the city. They run every 15 minutes. Fairly safe area around here. Were down in Devon now and then as have friends in Torquay we visit. Andy..  allthumbz

Thanks Andy(and modelman) wave ...our daughter lives in Hove (actually!) and we would prefer to be nearer.....we could park outside her house on a visitor permit, but we would be on quite a steep hill.   Maybe we would be better trying to find a flat bit of road in the same zone though, rather than the camp site.
