Were thinking of going to the motorhome side. IS this the dark dark side?

Folding camper was damaged in an accident in Spain. Repair requires a new front panel, side panel, door and wheel arch. One place we went for a quote said it would most likely be written off since their estimate for repair was over 6k.

Oh I guess that is also a Dark Side.

However motorhoming is very different to FC-ing and even caravanning.
We found with the motorhomes that we tended to tour more.
With the FC and the caravan, we go to a place, set up and then tour around that area.
With the motorhomes we would go to a place, stay one or maybe a couple of nights and then move on.
The only times we stayed for any length of time was when we A-framed the Moggy Minor behind us and then toured an area with that.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have lots of fun.

I am living in hope that the folding camper can be repaired as it's a 2012 model and we have just about cracked putting up the awning, and it doesn't leak.

Well after owning the caravan for nearly a year now I and the family have no regrets and wouldn't go back.
The van is far warmer and more practical than the folding camper.
The extended season is great we did a weekend in Febuary and woke up with frost on the roof (lovely and warm inside though).

Another advantage I have found with storing at home it gets used as an extra room (I go there on a Saturday afternoon with a couple of beers) and listen to the football.

Still kept one tent (a Bell Tent) as I really like these but haven't used it to camp.... Only in the back garden.

So to anyone who is thinking of upgrading...don't wait just do it you won't regret it.
