Hi there,

my name is Pat and my wife (pauline)and our two kids have been caravaning now for five years. We started with a cheepie outfit to provide us with a roof while we were at cycling competitions around the country ( it leaked like a sieve ). We got bitten by the bug and now own a 2004 Ranger 510/4L, which we hope to take to France in 2008.

We used to hire a static van but came to our senses and decided to go mobile and see the rest of the country,and what a pleasure it has been.

Hi Patrick and family



Welcome to the Forum, I hope you will pop in often and read the threads, we are a happy bunch (most of the time)!



Great choice of van (Bailey), get out as often as you can and relax and enjoy the sites around the country.



We are thinking of going to France next summer, where are you thinking of heading in France?

I believe the CC do good deals on ferries, and you could do a google or similar search for campsites.



Good luck, let me know how you get on!

Venus 460/2 Deluxe - Venus 460/2 Deluxe offers sharp graphics, glazed door, smart alloys and a large front window. Service points are placed on the offside (© Practical Caravan)
Coachman Pastiche 520 - Clean lines and understated decals give the Pastiche 520 an elegant exterior, and Al-Ko ATC and stabiliser mean it should be an easy tow (© Practical Caravan)
Adria Altea 472 DS Eden - Maximising the window area has helped Adria create a roomy feel, and the whole interior exudes a sleek, modern look that's unusual at this price (© Practical Caravan)
