Welcome awr. It would be neat to hear of adventures in RVing from Scotland.
My grandsons father is from Paisley. They go to see 'mumsy', other grandma, about every 2 years. She comes here the alternate year.
Great folks, you Scots )

Alan, WELCOME to iRV2!!

Your rig conversion to LP sounds really interesting,we look forward to hearing more of your experiences with using and enjoying it.
I'm especially interested in hearing of your travels in Scotland.....Maybe you can tell us in the "just conversation" forum all about how popular RV'ing is in Scotland.

I think you'll find there are many good folks here ready to share their thoughts and experience with you...

ARW:

Welcome to IRV2---You will find this site very informative.
You say you have converted the 8:1 to Propane.
Come to the WORKHORSE forum and give us your assessment of the change. I have learned a lot from these forums and I look forward to you postings.

I have made it to the BI twice, One wekk in England, and Two weeks to Ireland. My Grandfather was for Tommy Boy, Sligo. Got to visit cousins in the house he was born in. The cottage was 211 yearsold and still being lived in. The USA was only 210 Yrs old---I had "chills" down My Back.

I always wanted to go back and see Scotland and Wales--Wife's health won't allow it for now.

Look forward to hearing from you.
