Hello!

Post by rosko on Sat Nov 24, 2018 10:59 am

Hello everybody, 
My partner and I have just become the proud owners of our first motorhome. A 1998 VW Clubman GL Autosleeper, in excellent condition. We are looking forward to many adventures in the UK and abroad over the next few years. 
I am French and I have been living in the UK for nearly twenty years and now enjoying my retirement thoroughly. My partner, who is English, is still working which means we will be doing plenty of weekends away, to make as much use of our motorhome as possible.
As complete newcomers to this experience, we will be hoping to gain vast amounts of knowledge from your members (so we don't have to keep bothering the very helpful previous owner!)
We look forward to meeting you all on the forum.

Welcome to the Forum. An excellent choice of van - I had a 1998 Clubman for 17 years [registration R ***SDF - my French friends said it was the ideal numberplate for a motorhome: Sans Domicle Fixe!

 So I guess it's the 2 litre engine, not the 2.5 litre turbo? If the latter, then it should fly up slopes, but I gather the former is only adequately powered.

Yes. it's the 2.4 l. engine. It's fine on flat roads (average : 60 mph), which is fast enough for us, and also to keep a decent consumation... content


@ Melb : Thanks !
