Having gone to the REALLY darkside and bought a static caravan , I will be putting the motorhome up for sale shortly. Going to try the static for a year and see how we go. Motorhome would just be kept in storage to give us a proper go , so it might as well be sold. Putting off writing the ad , but will do it when up in Monifieth next week.
Hope we've made the correct decision.
John.

Why?

Where the heck will go in a STATIC! caravan?

You need to book yourselves a nice touring trip for a month or so - then have a rethink if it is still good idea to sell

I’ll send the bear up to sort you out next week, OK?

The max for us is two days in one place, the beauty of a motorhome is you don't have to go back to your base after every trip out.

We seem to be stuck at home this year, but I wouldn't dream of selling the Navajo, day trips are so much nicer than in the car, we can even have a nap after lunch if we want.
Mind you if it was a big long heavy thing I´d think of swapping for a smaller one.

Fear not my friend we have had a statics over the last 18 years and just upgraded to our latest one just over a year ago. We have had our  house in Wakefield for the last fifty years or so and have handed it over to my son and family, we were just rattling around in it and we buggered off to who knows where most of the year during the winter months, or we did when I retired..

The buggers took my HGV off me so the tag axel Hymer had to go and at 70 I couldn't be arsed buying another smaller one, so we carry on living in our Static Caravan on the coast and over looking the five lakes stuffed with fish which I go down and annoy, we would never think of living in bricks and mortar again, saying that I converted my workshop at home into a flat and we are going back again today for the great grandsons birthday, bugger the tribe of kids insist on clambering all over me, who would be a grand and great grandpappy!.... ME!.

Isn't it lovely living somewhere where it doesn't matter one little bit if you don't go away from it ray.  Someone on the other forum was talking about his holiday home, I told him I am lucky enough to live in my holiday home permanently.[big-thumbs-up-smiley-emoticon]

You might be motorhomeless soon John, but hope you'll stick around on here. I'll still talk to you. [smile]

I don't recall getting a chitty informing me of the upcoming MoHo sale John so you'll have to keep it for now, might be a good idea anyway, it'll not cost a mint to keep it while you get the static out of your/her system, and it took a while for you to find your perfick van, and old van prices are slowly rising with the cost of new ones so keeping a year longer might actually make you your money as I'm sure you have kept in excellent condition.
