Wow, this is nerve wracking first new caravanner and first ever forum update. Been a frustrated caravanner for ever and after trying camping for two nights last summer in the garden decided I just couldn't do it. I bent the husbands ear for a few weeks and he relented into buying a 2005 Bailey Pageant Bretagne for me which we eventually got in November. Having never towed or set a caravan up, I decided to wait for the weather to warm up a bit and drove in a vertual straight line to Cleethorpes. What a fab weekend we all had. I am now totally addicted and spend most days thinking about the following weekend and where I can go. Just done Mablethorpe (not a success) and Trusthorpe (brilliant) on my own with the children so I have joined the growing army of female tow car drivers - Oh we have a 735 bmw on LPG which helps..... Off to plan this weekends trip!!
