    Apols for thread diversion! We looked at a similar Autocruise and nearly bought one. I liked the compactness. But for us it lacked the storage space for outdoor chairs n stuff. We also wanted to store our Bromptone inboard. The s/h (like new) Bailey was perfect, loads of space and Alde heating hopefully will make it great for winter usage too. We need our money’s worth!!!!

    Back to the Friday’s tour, I did my first last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Relaxed, great company, well organised, lovely routes and good beer a plenty. What’s not to like?

    Go ahead and divert. Campervans are interesting.
    There appears to be a decent campsite in Lisieux, and the recce will check it out and report back.

    You are correct. As a bonus the link to go to the website for the campsite returns you to exactly the same website you start from.
    I have emailed them. I expect no reply whatsoever. The tourist office will surely not open for months and no one will think to look at the inbox. The recce will pay a visit.

    Apologies I cannot make it this year due to lack of leave :sad: It's my retirement year and I'm only working 7 months of the financial year so not entitled to much time off. Therefore I will keep abreast of your activities via CC and updates from @Fab Foodie .

    Paid subs regardless but only intend to do the August 17th down to Whitstable if I can. Alas too much on for the early part of the year (small matter of getting married and all that stuff).

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    Sorry - I'm being unfair. There are many things in favour of motorhomes, but I have investigated in enough detail to know that for us the financial and practical downsides far outweigh any possible benefit.

    I can see that might be different for someone else.

    @Hill Wimp can tell you of every property for sale in the Outer Hebs as well! We have some plans of which the Motorhome plays a significant part.

    Clearly we have different cost-benefit algorithms....

    ach gu cinnteach tha taighean fìor mhath ri fhaighinn anns an Fhraing airson prìs coltach ris? agus cha leigeadh tu a bhith a 'fulang geamhraidhean eadar-dhealaichte na h-Alba no na meanbh-chuileagan as t-samhradh.
