David, I'd be interested in what changes you've made to the way you do things when away?

A motorhome is something we are also considering within the next 2 or 3 years - although we've made no decision as yet.

The main difference is that we now look for campsites which are near to towns/villages and also near public transport. We have used our bus passes quite a bit since we had a motorhome. We tended to do this when we had the caravan as well. If we are going away for about four days we can take all the food with us as we have a much larger fridge/freezer so no need to bother about shopping. Our motorhome is very similar in layout and size to our last caravan so from that point of view little has changed although I don't miss all the hassle of getting hitched up and all the associated checks and despite having towed a van for thirty years I certainly don't miss towing!!!

    • Sizing an awning
      By tangotonyb · Posted
      OK thanks - I'll try that and see if it's anywhere near the 1050cm I believe it to be based on the caravan size (assuming that THAT's correct lol).

      Quite right, the beading length is not the one dictating the size.  The "A" dimension is from the ground back to the ground on the opposite side. As the awning's sides themselves don't quite  touch the ground, but stand about 5 cm above it, I would measure it along the van face edge as follows. From the lowest corner of the LH side panel right round along the beading to the lowest corner of the RH side panel,. Then to this add 10 cm for the "ground standoff" 5 cm each side to get the "A" size.   [Practically It could be easier to measure to a centre seam if that is a feature of the awning, and double that plus adding on that 10 cm.]
