Do you plan on using your motorhome throughout the winter months?

(For discussion: Is that at home or abroad - any tips any of you can offer to winter motorhoming novices?)

Our Motorhome is our home, so yes we will be using it 24/365.

This winter we are heading for south east Spain (Nov to April). We will be plodding down the west coast of France in November. We would have gone sooner but have had to delay the trip a couple of months.

Not wanting to wish my life away, but sadly we're not retired yet, so we'll be spending the winter in the UK.
We have no plans to end the touring season though and already have sites booked for late November and also the period between Christmas and the New Year.
I love mountains in the winter and will be heading into Cumbria for a few short breaks all the way through to March, as long as the snow is not as deep as it was earlier this year, when we couldn't get the MH out from the side of the house and had to cancel a few trips.

yes, we use ours throughout the year, and usually in winter have several trips away, generally using CC sites often London (Abbey Wood), Bristol (Baltic Wharf), Brighton (Sheepcote Valley), Birmingham (Chapel Lane) and similar.

Hi,

Use it all year, xmas markets, rallies in the UK, New year on a rally in Lincolnshire. Stuck with school holidays but try to get away weekends nearer home also.

Oil filled radiator was a godsend in the Alps at -11 , refillable gas tanks also a great help when on blown air heating that tends to use up quite a lot when heating on more often than normal.

Can't wait to be full timing.

Hi
We use our MH all year round. We go skiing in the Alps at least twice a year and have been doing so for about 10 years now.
