Hi Jen and welcome to MHF, best advice is don't let it sit on the drive, get out there and use.

If you have any specific questions, jsut ask, one or two on here have a clue, the others don't

Welcome Jen.

As Kev says, just get out n use it. Best to stay fairly close to home 1st time - in case you forget the corkscrew!

Yes Jen, welcome and hope your new van is everything you hope for. Make sure you check it out thoroughly before leaving the dealer. Maybe even stay a night at the dealer if you take some bedding.
Not saying anything will be wrong but you hear about people buying and after getting home finding the problems.
Good luck.

Yes it's a caravan, Jen needs a caravan forum, Charisma has pointed her in the right direction on her/his other post.

I'm Jan

Yes it is but hey, we take in all waifs and strays but I can't help thinking she would be better subscribing to a caravan forum.

I have no problem with anyone with a caravan, they have mostly the same equipment only less of it, and we do have the odd tugger on here.

We use a caravan to go to Spain as we stay in one place for around five months so yes there are the ODD one or two on here who are tuggers as well.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!
