We have a Rockwood 2889WS. Itís about as big as we can get away with over here, most campsites max out at 9m
It is a great bit of kit, albeit a small one compared to your market! Thanks for the welcome.

Congrats and welcome from Southern New England. We're a big fan of the European campers and your campsites. Are american rv's sold there?

Yes sir, thereís a dealer that imports them and converts them to comply with uk electricity, gas & braking legislation etc. The UK has one manufacturer of 5th wheelers but it doesnít come close to what you guys have to offer. Thanks for the welcome.

Hi and welcome to FRF!
We spent some time up in the Lakes District and absolutely loved it. Are there campgrounds there that you can fit in?

The lakes are spectacular! There are sites, yes, however getting to them is a logistical challenge! Lots of careful planning with the routes. Thanks for the welcome.

Welcome from the US Pacific Northwest. Nice to see the forum expanding outside the US. (I know we have a lot of Canadians and at least 1 Aussie, too) I've always wondered how popular RVing is in other parts of the world and how extensive the RV infrastructure is.

We have 2 or 3 more Brits that are members here. One is fulltime in Spain.
