Hi everyone, just want to say hello to you all. We have just bought a 1984 Robin 2 berth, and despite never owning a caravan before, have leapt in with both feet!

Being quite a .......”mature”......... caravan, and us being total novices at this, we will undoubtedly have numerous questions to ask about running, owning and maintaining our new found love. We will apologise now if any questions seem daft, but please bear with us! And if all goes well, we hope to meet some of you on our travels around the U.K. in the near future.

Thanks in advance

Mark & Lucy, Olive the Land Rover and the caravan, Forget-me-not.

Hi Mark & Lucy, welcome to the forum and congratulations on buying your caravan. If there's anything at all that you want to know just ask. The only daft question is the one that you should have asked but didn't! :)

whatto, welcome and ask away as you need to.

Gosh I haven't seen a Robin on site since I was about 8, think I've got a photo of one somewhere from 1979/1980 It belonged to the grandparents of a boy I met and played with on site at Buckfast. Great when we hear about childhood vans still being used.

Hello Mark and Lucy, welcome on board :) Half the fun is learning as you go along !
If you enjoy an adventure and have a good sense of humour (and have a bottle of wine to hand for the purpose of helping the sense of humour come out when needed!) you will be just fine !
Just enjoy yourselves ;)

Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy your new to you caravan. There is plenty of experience on here and so ask if you need to as there is always someone who has the answer.

Hi Mark and Lucy I've just picked up your post and must say welcome to fellow "mature" van fans, and fellow countrymen!
First thing you need to do is google Retro Caravan Club UK and join our happy band of like-minded enthusiasts.There is a huge wealth of knowledge among our 700+ membership, and we also know how to have fun! Give us a whirl; you won't regret it!
Second, make a note of The Caravan Centre, Blaenavon, 01495 792700, the biggest breakers in Wales, for parts for Forget-me not, should she ever need them.
Third, just enjoy your new-found hobby!

Emmerson

It's better in a Royale!
