By keef and annie hellinger, Nov 20 2021 18.11 pm Not The Motorhome trip No16 : February 1990 (a retrospective hence number out of order) This is a retrospective blog to specifically feature one of our early, and I mean really early , family breaks during school half term way back in 1990 to the wonderful Isle of Man We would like to start revisiting some of the earlier islands we have been to as a family but this time in the motorhome, it will need a little research Examples
By keef and annie, Nov 16 2021012 06:45PM This is what we said back in 2012, we say it again in 2021 Greetings from Keef & Annie. We plan to use this blog to document our travels in our Motorhome documenting via photo and video what we have seen but also sharing hints and tips along the way. We have already spent a lot of time in motorhomes travelling The Pacific Islands, NZ & Australia for almost a year in 2007/8 and from one side of Canada to the other in 2010. All of these
By guest, Feb 22 2012 06:45PM Greetings from Keef & Annie. We plan to use this blog to document our travels in our Motorhome documenting via photo and video what we have seen but also sharing hints and tips along the way. We have already spent a lot of time in motorhomes travelling The Pacific Islands, NZ & Australia for almost a year in 2007/8 and from one side of Canada to the other in 2010. All of these trips were in "hire" motorhomes, but now we have embarked on getting o
By keef & annie, Feb 23 2012 06:07PM This is currently the worlds most expensive motorhome at £1.9m (2012) over £2M by 2016. We have been looking to buy for almost 2 years but I must confess we didn't even look at this one. Couldn't find the right butler ;) Enjoy The INDEX page has TAGs for all Blogs and by year or month, A-Z INDEX alphabetically or just using the LETTERs in the Tag maps, or you can use the SEARCH page to look for something or just use the search facilities h
By keef & annie, Feb 24 2012 12:40PM Even if these just need washing to freshen them up after a few years of travelling taking down your curtains in a VW motorhome and /or van can be a nightmare. Even delicate female fingers found this a challenge and as for my porkers well I wasn't even at the races.
We had had some advice from a guy who worked on upholstery for auto sleepers for a long time and his advice was DON’T or be very very careful, the track holders are fiddly, sma
By keef & annie, Feb 24 2012 07:55PM It took us well over 2 years to chose the 'right' motorhome as well as having lived and travelled in them via hiring for quite a while. It is not an easy choice. there are so many pro's and con's to consider... size, manufacturer base vehicle, beds, price, warrenty, location, layout etc etc
I found this blog article which really helps encapsulate some of the key issues BUT when all is said and done we passionately believe you will instinc
By keef & annie, Feb 25 2012 02:01PM There are supposedly two major changes for us Brits travelling in our Motorhomes / RVs to France from this year.
It is hard to prove conclusively that they are now law but it would be sensible to know about them.
1. The need to carry a breathalyser kit for each person on your Motorhome with you
2. If you have speed camera detection on your Satnav under POI (points of interest) you will have to disable it.
You can order a twin NF pack of
By keef & annie, Feb 26 2012 03:25PM Came across this interesting images of very old motorhomes
Can you imagine being in one of these today? Suggestion use the classic and vintage tabs #enjoy UPDATE November 2021 it should be noted that this board now has much more that very old motorhomes so you may want to look at motorhome-travels blog on pinterest and especially this OLD MOTORHOMES board, click HERE Enjoy, haha The INDEX page has TAGs for all Blogs and by year or month, A
By keef & annie, Feb 26 2012 03:59PM This one is not quite as expensive as the worlds most expensive Motorhome but its getting there.
Why not take a look in more detail at the Futuria (<-just click here).
Here's the SUMMARY just in case

By keef & annie, Mar 1 2012 09:32AM The Snakeliner Presidents Suite could well be that.
It has 969 sq ft (90m²) of living space, plus "The President-Suite", which we’re assuming should be the Presidential Suite but is a victim of poor translation, it is german, measures 18m (59 ft) long and 2.5m (8.2 ft) wide - not including the driver’s cabin. But if that wasn’t big enough, both sides can be extended outward a further 1.125m (3.7ft) to make it 5m (16.4 ft) wide when fully s
By keef & annie, Mar 8 2012 09:07AM UPDATE retrospectively numbered as a Recommended Leisure Van trader by us in November 2022 Because they were very good to us when we broke down in 2014 in France, but times have moved on and with the cost-of-living crisis our loyalty has had to be dispensed with in favour of price, so we are now with Performance Direct for both our insurance and breakdown cover but (if price didn't win out over Service) we would still highly recommend Safeg
By keef & annie, Mar 9 2012 03:51PM A motorhome is a type of self-propelled recreational vehicle or RV which offers living accommodation combined with a vehicle engine. The term motorhome is most commonly used in the UK, Europe including Eire, United States, Canada, Australia & New Zealand. They are used for motorhome travelling and accommodation.

By keef & annie, Mar 12 2012 07:45PM Just tried this out and was panicky that it may not come off again after fitting. Luckily it did so thought I’d share my experiences, sorry if its already blindingly obvious to many of you but whilst we are ‘experts’ in hiring vans this is the 1st we have ever owned so its precious to us.
Slide the Milenco front cover with top strap over the wheel in a horizontal position, avoiding the wheel arch of the vehicle.

By keef & annie, Mar 15 2012 12:00PM Just joined the newly launched website @ the Caravan Club, how about you? It was renamed later than 2012 as the Caravan and Motorhome Club due to the rapid rise in motorhome owners, by 2021 I always call it the Motorhome & Caravan club for obvious reasons, won't be long folks 😉 Where do you stand on Motorhome Vs Caravan, have your say PLEASE in the comments box attached to this blog, feel free and many thanks for your time

By keef & annie, Mar 17 2012 12:51PM Makes it so much easier to wind and unwind those often heavy electric cables and you can set it up so that the motorhome / van / rv end is ready to attach when you arrive reminding you that it is a good idea to attach the van end first.
Plus it means you don't have all that cable hanging around your van that fellow travellers can trip over.
What do you think? Have your say, share your experiences.

By keef & annie, Mar 17 2012 01:05PM Worried about your payload? Want to squeeze in a little something extra, maybe another book to read on those long lot summer days, a slightly better (but heavier) BBQ, a few more bottles of wine or beer....?
Well if you don't already know about these it may well be worth taking a look and either buying one or trying at the next bottle exchange to swap, could save you a bit of travelling weight.
