The last photo shows the size difference in the different RV's. I spent quite a bit of time in Spain in 2011-2014 and only saw smaller RV's.
Most of the towns were had smaller streets. The campgrounds I saw had small sites and had the RV's crammed in.

How difficult is it to maneuver you coach across the UK.

Steve, that area looks beautiful. We just need a bridge up across Iceland to the UK!

Steve, Looks great.

We just got back from Germany and France. Our close friends in Germany just bought a 26' something (similar to our Class C's). He manages it pretty well but I would leave a path of destruction in those narrow streets.

Sometime around early to mid 1971 or so my wife, two children and myself went around the Edinburgh area with 1970 Volvo 145S and a Alpine trailer, I donít recall seeing anything like that around.

We were just in Scotland this spring. I can't imagine driving my Dynasty on those roads. You the man!

A bridge via Iceland (to fill up) would be cool.

Looks great! Scotland is beautiful! Went backpacking across it ~20 years ago.

A swap is a great idea, but you may have to count me out. I've driven in a bunch of countries outside the US, but none in the UK. I just can't get my mind around driving on the other side of the road. Add in some roundabouts and an RV...it wouldn't be pretty.

Have an awesome, fun trip!!

Wow, what a view!
Is that a Westie? We have had Westies and Cairn Terriers. Currently only one Cairn. Digger, the Westie, passed over the Rainbow Bridge in 2016.
One more question, do you usually find your rig to be the largest in most campgrounds you visit? Although I have been in Britain, I did not get to Scotland. Still kicking myself (well, except for the Haggis - will pass on that :-). I see you are paying about 6.30 USD for a gallon of diesel, or about 5.00 GBP.

It is our Westfield (Daisy)
Fuel is a bit expensive so we try to stay in one place for longer. We work on a caravan park in summer and travel in winter, normally Spain, but with all this brexit c*** Going on we are staying in the Uk this winter as could be a problem with the animals.
The Goverment doesn’t take us travellers into consideration.

My wife and I are both from that neck of the woods. Fabulous place. I showed her the photo of you class A in among the caravans and vans :-)

Did you have to pay for 2 or 3 sites?
