RVing in Ireland

Hi all
I have my fleetwood bounder 2years now and I live in Ireland the roads or not big enough so driving slowly is a must much to the annoyance of the traffic behind me. The thing about the RV its big and lots of space where the motorhomes over here are a lot smaller. The down side is parts, there so hard to get and I have almost got all the repair work carried out but the cost for getting the bits and pieces I needed amounted to a lot the parts where fair enough priced the courier was the one who made lots out of it. If anyone on the site was thinking of coming over here and driving around the island, if your renting a motorhome go for something around 24 foot coz the roads over here are just to small for a 32 foot RV and other road users can be very nasty. So should you need anymore info just ask I will do my best to answer any questions.
Steve
