    Default Do You Think I'm Mad !

    Hi
    Never been on the forum for a while due to a life change and it looks like divorcé number 2 is on the table.
    Anyway that’s enough about the above sh*t happens and you have to get on with life so I maybe selling the vec soon and buying the below RV . I plan to sell the house and do a 2 year year tour of North America ( will stay longer if I can ) then ship the RV back to the uk I won’t have to pay vat or import duty as I will have owned it for more than 12 months.
    Change the electrics to 240 from 110 + LPG Con and anything else I need to do , it should come in around the 6k mark for the mods , giving me a saving of around 30k on UK prices.
    I then plan to go to Europe come back to the UK once a year for about 2 / 4 months so I can get the mot / ins etc done I will also have to do the odd bit of work this will mean taking low pay part time work but I should make enough to get by on , then back to somewhere hot for the winters .

    This might not happen as I’m only in the early part of planning this but I have thought of everything and heard everything ie what are you going to do when your old or you want another house etc.

    Do you think I’m MAD …..maybe able to keep the vec and tow it behInd me …ie they call it a toad in rv jargon.

    Thanx m8

    If I come to any meets you will have to make sure it has a very large car park as it's 32 feet without the ladders on I don't even have to take a hgv test as I can drive it on a normal car licence

    ( I have checked it will need re-plated ) it is legal UK dealers do this however I will take some lessons in the states because the insurance is cheaper in the US if you take the US driving test.

    At least being able to travel around at your free will, it will help to take your mind off things a little bit, and meet some friendly people along the way. Can't imagine what you must be going through.
