Graham here from South Wales, well not originally, originally 21 years in Devon and 21 years in the New Forest area.
It's nice to look around this forum and get hints and tips, I'm a bit of a John Wickersham fan too! ('The Dude' of the Camper/Caravan world)
I was bought up on Caravan holidays across France throughout the 70's, best memories from my younger years. And have continued my personal obsession with camping in France by varying means. I've spent the last 10 years converting vans to campervans and travelling around, as well as using tents occasionally, however as my family is growing I've decided to go back to my first love, Caravans. Well nearly!
I'm going to be looking this Autumn for something in my budget, something I can tinker with and make awesome. My lovely wife's expecting so everything is on hold for the moment.
So I pretty much spend a lot of internet time looking at Caravans, I used the do the same with Campers/Motorhomes etc. It's a lovely obsession. :-)
Van's I'm going to keeping my eye out for :
1991/2 Adria Forma (4 berth)
1991/2 Swift Challenger
1991/2 Abbey GTS 415
and similar, it's a guide to my needs and budget.
Anyway, enough from me, back to looking at Caravans!
