Hello, we thought of becoming tuggers.

Post by ekka on Sat Jul 23, 2016 2:32 pm

Hello everyone, just an introduction for now, one may say I had a brain storm in thinking after being motorhomers for many years we sold our lovely Rapido van in May of this year, bought a tow car then set about looking for a caravan, but here we are just a few months down the line and find ourselves with a 2006 AS Executive, so hopefully after doing a few jobs we'll be back on the road motorhoming !..............anyone want a now redundant but lovely tow car !!! hugegrins

Bye for now, Eric & Sue Richards

Caravans are good for the very elderly, but that's not you yet. A mere whippet at 70!! snigger

Welcome from me too.

Thank you, we've had various Motorhomes over the years, but this is the first I've discovered during the last couple of days with door handles and locks taken from a Morris Marina ! !, still we're off in it for a couple of days to see how it stacks up against all the others.

We too have an 05 Exec, and we think it's the bees knees.

Tuggers indeed... tap_fingers go and wash your mouth out with carbolic. innocent

We went to Cornwall a few weeks ago and to save driving the MH through the tight twisty fishing villages we decided to hire a car out when there for a few days for local sightseeing.

We realised this is one step from caravanning but I couldn't bring myself to even consider the idea of towing one of those things around the country :)

It`s not the towing that is the problem, I use to tow a large caravan, it`s the faffing about when on site, and same when leaving to my mind, why make life harder, relax and enjoy. allthumbz
