My name is Ron. I've been a caravan user for nearly 20 years, but now find that they are getting much too long and heavy for me, with features I don't need. So I've just bought my first motorhome, and will therefore probably be asking typical newbie questions. Am also new to this forum, so please bear with me if I start asking questions which have already been answered.

Hi Ron and welcome to the forum from a bit north of you in Lincolnshire. Nice choice of motorhome as a starter. 
There’s not meany questions that go unanswered on the forum. Believe me it dosnt matter how long you have been an Autosleeper owner there’s always something to be asked at some time no matter how trivial. 
Enjoy you’re travels.

Hi Ron

I also was a caravaner for over 25 years as many motorhome owners on this forum were.

As Dave said a good choice of motorhome (I have the Nuevo EK)

It is a culture changing from being a tugged, but it has many benefits once you have adjusted to less space.

One bit of advice I was given don’t be tempted to all the accessories on offer for your motorhome, as you probably don’t need them and they will end up in the garage of loft.

Welcome to the joys of owning a motorhome.

Thanks for the welcome, and the advice.

Re accessories. I suppose that suggestions for essential accessories would be a whole new topic in its own right, so won't ask that question here.

I've still got my caravan stuff. Only things I'm getting for now are levelling ramps and mirror guards.

Be aware of the cheaper mirror guards as they are in my opinion very flimsy and will offer very little protection.

I can look up the manufactures of the ones I have (and have had over 10 years) if your interested 

Likewise you need much more sturdy ramps for a motorhome which will be around 3.5 tons (Think mine are Fiamma often on offer at the motorhome shows

Thanks for advice. Having read reviews re guards, have decided to go for the (expensive) ones from Mirrorguard.
Re levellers, would they be the yellow ramp-style ones, or the grey 3-stepped ones?

Mirrorguard (i.e. the more expensive ones) have so far coped with 2 minor brushes (mind you, neither was sufficient to move the mirror arms at all). Any marks from vegetation can be removed with polish / Brasso etc.  
So far, so good....
