We actively looked for a LHD Hymer when we were in the market for a moho. We wanted to (and did) tour Europe and so decided that LHD would make life a lot easier. Never regretted it

That was our thinking too Pat back in 2008. We thought we'd spend most of our time on the continent, and indeed we did.

When I came to change the MH on my own I decided things wouldn't change so I went for LHD again. Very happy with it. Though I'm just starting my first UK trip with it so we'll see how that goes.

I never found it a problem with LHD in UK. The only time you have a bit of an issue is if you come to an intersection that curves left. Luckily my kitchen window on the right is strategically placed for line of sight


Knowing the impatience of some UK drivers, I slow down well ahead as I approach the intersection with traffic from the right so I can see and judge the gap knowing it's free when I lose line of sight. No problem except for those who hoot at me for going too slowly. Thus I avoid rush hour whenever possible or swear at them in a most unladylike fashion, being on my own I can do that!

I had a problem with that coming to Edinburgh yesterday. I had to get out of my seat! Must leave the blinds open! Tho I have ordered a rear view mirror a Swan neck - see how that does.

I bought a stick-on-the-windscreen mirror, with a longer swan neck - and it works!
