I can only imagine the headaches of getting TUV approval for that unless they have lower their standards which I doubt very much they would.

Welcome, unfortunately from a short-timer. We'll be selling our '02 Georgetown 32' Class A in a couple of months.

DW and I are ex-pats from the UK. We emigrated in 1968 and have lived all but three years in Washington State. I worked for Boeing fro 30 years and made many trips to Germany when working with DLH.

When you get to the US, I'd strongly recommend a visit to the Northwest as soon as you can manage it. The scenery around here is very reminiscent of Germany and Switzerland, high mountains with snow-capped volcanoes, lots of islands, lots of coastline, much of it like Scandinavia.

The drawback is how far it is from the East Coast. When I was at Boeing, I dealt with an airline based in Bahrain. Their Chief Engineer was visiting us for a technical meeting. He got a fax from his boss that said "While you're over there, nip across toe New York and talk to TWA about leasing another Tri-Star". He replied "why don't you nip across to New York - you're nearer than I am." NY to WA is just over 3000 miles.

Great to have fellow Germans (I am 1st generation American - Father from Berlin & mother from Erfurt and rest of my family in Berlin, Koln, etc.) on the forum. I have not been so brave to drive an RV in Europe yet but have been driving one in the US for 18 years and counting! Welcome!

Welcome to you both. You will find traveling and camping here much different than Europe. I am retired from the Military(Army) and after four years in Southeast Asia, I spent 13 years in Germany(Heidelberg, Augsburg) and toured at every opportunity. I wore out two new VW Pop-top Campers doing it. Distances here will amaze you as well as the diversity of the different parts (Northeast vs Southwest for example). Americans differ by region as do Europeans. Southerners are much like Bavarians. You will have many adventures, just as I did and memories for a lifetime. Again, enjoy, ask questions one of us will know the answer, I'm sure.
