Hi. Daughter expecting 2nd baby later this year. Found and bought a Heartland Bighorn to ease bedspaces when visiting, 3 miles from her home. Only spent a week in it so far and very pleased. Problem is that we don't know what we don't know so all a voyage of discovery. Lots of answers and food for thought in these forums though. Wife due to retire next year so may get a large American pick-up and venture further afield. All driving would be down to me though! My wife would never drive the rig! Don't see many 5th wheelers on the roads here, maybe they travel at night, but obviously lots around as several spare part companies around the UK. Looking forward to finding out more.

Hi and

I visit the UK once a month. Have been surprised by the number of Class A RVs I've seen while driving around. MY colleague just bought his second one.

High R4H,

Welcome to the Forum! Where in the UK are you, my Mum was from St Helens.

There is an "Owner's Forum" at the top of the page which could give you some good info. YouTube has a lot of how to videos on RV's that might also be of help.

Read old threads and hope that you have a great time with your rig. Lynne

R4H:

You're a braver man than I, Gunga Din! I can't imagine navigating the British roads with a rig that big.

DW and I are ex-pat Brits, originally from Leyland, Lancashire (emigrated in 1968) and now living in retirement (ex-Boeing) in Anacortes, Washington State. We had a 32' Class A for four years, but the last year of ownership it was only used as auxiliary sleeping accommodation when we had more visitors than bedrooms. Both in mid-70's now and not as interested in travelling as we once were.
