You could rent a motorhome or caravan (you'd need a car as well) in Europe-either would have bathroom & cooking facilities. Great way to see places.

I agree you were wise to take what we call a shake down camping trip to try out all the equipment. When our DS and DIL bought a mini to drive to Alaska where they were being stationed in the Air Force, I suggested they take it to a camp groud for a day and I think my DIL was insulted. She couldn't understand why. They bought it here and drove it to Alaska with DH following in their car that was shipped from Washington.

Now does the motor home run on gas or diesel? And do you have any cooking facility at all?
I always thought renting an RV in Europe would be the way to really see the area. I believe there are caravans that do that for you. In our travels we often see people that have rented an American RV to travel in. I remember once a couple from Europe could not figure out where to fill the water tank. Several people in the camp ground couldn't help them either. A real puzzler.

We have a bed across the back, then a tiny bathroom (shower, toilet, basin) then 2 seats(forward facing), then the table followed by the driver's/passenger's seats which rotate so 4 can sit at the table. There is a second double bed which drops down over the driver's seat and table/cooker.
All very compact! Certainly one of the smallest we saw but we wanted something easy to use/park as a second vehicle eg when my husband needs a car to get to school (he usually cycles)etc

Thanks, Tessa! I appreciate being able to see inside. It looks very nice. Is there a couch along the back that makes in to a bed? Is that where you sleep?

I have heard that the RV's in England are smaller than the RV's in the US. But size doesn't matter as we've had just as much fun no matter what size our MH was.

I've added one picture of inside. It's quite hard to take pictures inside because it's small (about 18 foot long).
Must go to bed now-have to work tomorrow

Tessa - I'm glad to hear your first excursion was so successful. Makes you ready to go again and again! I checked out the new pictures in your photo gallery. The MH looks great. As I am always greedy and want more, more, more, I would love to see what the inside looks like. If you can post a picture of inside, I would love that.

We had a lovely time. Everything seemed to work fine. We stayed at a small quiet campsite, I'm sure we will go back. The rain had stopped this morning so we were able to get out and enjoy the countryside.
I've uploaded a few pictures to my page.
Looking forward to our next trip!

I hope you had a great time! It was quite a learning experience for us when we took our motorhome out for the first time, and that was just a few weeks ago.

Oh, how fun! And wise to only go for a short trip for the first time. I hope the weather holds good for you and we'll look forward to a full report!

We go away for just one night tomorrow-our very first trip in a motorhome. We are not going far! We are going to check everything works as it should. I may have questions when we return!
Hoping it doesn't rain all the time we are away so we can bike or walk.
