Comments: Hi Paul, really enjoyed your blog and all the great tips, thinking of buying a small motorhome this year. Something like a bessacarr. The thought of things going wrong keeps putting me off going for it.
I do like my home comforts like TV, computer and stuff like that. It seems a lot of trouble for these things to be possible. Your lucky because you sound like you can turn your hand to most things. Anyway I should just go for it, maybe get one that's not as old as the one you bought. It's just a chance you take I guess. You've done really well.
Admin reply: Hello Anne-Marie Thanks for leaving a message, my theory on this is that if you buy something relatively new then you wont have any issues, don't forget my motorhome was 21 years old! With a much newer one you won't get the leak issues, and your level of comfort will be much much higher, get some solar power and get out onto the road. Best of luck to you if you take up the challenge Paul

Comments: Loved your blog, Paul. Came across it then spent all day Sunday reading it! In between putting the Christmas lights on the tree in the garden. Know your problems, have had an RV for 15 years. Just finished a leak problem myself. The dealer wanted to do the job for £2000. Prefer France! Always the Sun down South!
Admin reply: HI Brian Thanks for reading the blog and your kind comments, yep South of France is much better! Keep fixing those leaks lol cheers Paul

Comments: hi, just a thought, if your stuck for parking, i have been going to brittania road, waltham cross, delivering to a fruit veg company called reynolds, you can see them from m25, anyway its quite busy and a bit industrial, but ive seen a couple of stealth campers parked up for sure, its safe but may be a bit to noisey, its got two catering vans that use it and they both do great breakfasts, they get there early 4.30 ish, ps dont park where the empty bread cases are stacked coz thats their pitches lol
Admin reply: Hi Darrell
I know Britania Road really well!! Ive got a client down there Kitchens r us and thats where the Kontiki was MOT'd in that road, and yeh you are not wrong it is busy! Thank for the tip never thought of parking there before, cheers and I hope all is well with you

Comments: Hi Paul.... I found your blog by accident, and I'm really glad I did! Me an 'er have been thinking about going on the road for some time, and the opportunity popped up out of nowhere a couple of months ago! We did some homework and decided on a Kon Tiki, which we have now bought. We expect to invade France round about mid Jan, before they sober up enough to stop us! Your blog gave us the encouragement we needed, aswell as a few laughs! We know many of the Welsh places you stayed, we've scooped a few in Caffi Roc!!
Anyway, We'll set up some sort of blog as we go, maybe we'll end up with a KonTiki blog community? Then we could elect a council, make rules, levy a tax to pay for it....... Gotta go, Matron's here with my pills..... All the Best, and keep up the blog..... A+A.
Admin reply: Hi Adrian
I think you will have a great time, I really wanted to do something there myself at the beginning of this year but just ran out of money, I'm glad you like the blog.Blimmey I can't believe you know Caffi Roc! you like cheesy music as well ! Keep me informed how you are getting on, would be good to find out. Thanks for leaving a message Paul
