Read, read, and read some more.
Buy what you want, and can afford.
Enjoy your purchase, and you won't regret.
For the time will come, when you will be back out of debt.

I am new to the rv lifestyle as well. Looks like we will be learning together. If I learn anything absolutely necessary I will definitely let you know.

Hi Paul
Im just waiting for the house to sell and thats me away I can't wait.

I looking for a A class under the 7.5 tonne so I don't have to take the hgv test the Arista 310 is ideal it has 3 slides and it is just over the 7.5 but I can get it re-plated when I ship it back to the UK.

Will do Paul and the same goes for me never new there was so many rv are you going to tour the US before you ship it back



Paul

Hi Paul

I shall be spending around 2yrs in USA popping into Canada and Mexico when my tourist visa expires then popping back when I have sorted it again.... from there will ship it across to Europe and drive back through Europe then Northern Europe - all in all intend to be away for around 10yrs.

As for licence - I have had a conversation with some people in the know and ur driving licence just might be all you need to drive the MH - no matter what the weight is... there are different laws in USA and Europe and then there is UK but I have a possible loop hole

Keep in touch
Icey
