I have found them absolutely great here, they treat us so well, just had a service done on the coach at Parts For Trucks Dartmouth, oil, filter, grease and repaired a wire they noticed on the underside, showed me a cam photo of it,,,, $191 so I was quite pleased as they were at if for 90 minutes.

May I enquire if you can get your rig on the channel tunnel train or will you use a ferry to get to mainland Europe? I've thought about it myself but was told I'd have trouble getting insurance over there. Could I also ask the cost of shipping to UK
Thank you


Barry and Pat, RVM114

I am told it will go through the chunnel but I prefer the ferry.
Insurance you can get here tourinsure.de
$4700 US for mine to go to Liverpool as I wish to go to Ireland first and buy a house but you can get it off at Hamburg as well with Seabridge

Don't ever let fear and common sense hold you back, you'll miss life!

How about the local Seafood? We have Seafood in Fla that is really Special, but that Cold Water variety is pretty good, as well.

When we were at Fundy National Park we walked into Alma, one misty afternoon. The town was having a "Chowder Coofoff Contest" we paid $10 and got a spoon-then walked around the hall getting small cups of Seafood Chowder. Some were prepared by Restaurants & Lodges, some were prepared by local Folks. I still find myself mentally revisiting that night.

Just had a lobster feast last night in Lunenburg, most excellent! Very good mussels with the lobster, loads of hot garlic butter and the wife had the seafood platter with half a dozen different bits, she loved it. Smoked mackerel and smoked haddock here is very good, they know how to do it right.

Hey there,

I am from Austria and am just currently planning on doing what you do, only vice-versa

So if you ever need any advice from a local European, pm me and I'll do my best to help!
I do know my way around in Austria, Germany and Scandinavia, so let me know when you go there. My father also owns a US RV (91' Gulf Stream Sunsport). And yes, you definitely can get around Europe with it. Almost all interesting places are made for a bus to come through and your motorhome is even smaller than a regular bus. So don't get yourself scared off by some other postings here. In my opinion most Europeans get themselves smaller RVs because they only use them a few weeks per year. Those who spend more time and/or are even fulltiming, usually get themselves a decent sized RV as well (8-10m length).

cheers and have fun,
Matt

You might want to go over the bridge to the Golf Course-the Views of the city from that side are memorable.

It brought to mind Malag & Oban , 2 beautiful Scottish Towns I love.

Carry On & be safe

Well thanks very much for that, I'll make a note of this and perhaps we can meet up next year.
