    Again, I'd like to pick the brains of more seasoned motorhomers. Our trip is planned be for over 100 days, all in Europe. I have been trying to secure sensible travel insurance which also covers our laptop/phones/i-pad/bikes etc while we are travelling. Our home insurance, which does cover these things, is limited to 60 days continuous travel and no travel insurance seems to cover personal belongings for the actual cost - I have quotes from the Caravan and Motorhome Club (we are members) and from a company called Staysure - the premiums for which are both over £500 and do huge medical and liability cover but little in the way of anything else. Am I missing something here? I have spent hours searching and on the phone. We can't be the only people planning an extended trip yet few insurers seem to cover longer periods. I would add we are both in our sixties. We do have European breakdown cover with our motorhome insurers so it's just the travel aspect. Any advice out there?

    We are busy planning our extended trip (3-4 months) to Europe and have done lots of reading, joined various camping associations and acquired books on Aires for motorhomes. As we are new to motorhoming, we are concerned about one or two things and would appreciate any advice anyone with experience can give us.
    We are travelling in a Hymer S740 which is just over 7m long and we are a bit concerned about the length being an issue for campsite/aires access. Are we worrying unnecessarily or are there significant restrictions we need to know about?
    We have also debated long and hard about whether to take additional transport with us beyond our mountain bikes. We are considering a Piaggio MP3 on a fixed trailer - though this would add to our overall length! We are keen to see surrounding areas and, being of a certain age, are not quite as fit as we might be so don't see ourselves pedalling for miles and miles. We looked at the MP3 as being safer to have with a pillion passenger rather than a small moped. Again, any views, advice, recommendations would be most welcome.
    Many thanks

    Hi, Everyone. Just joined up. We're new to motorhoming and planning an extended trip to Europe starting in April. Just hoping for some help and advice from those who are already experienced. We are hoping to minimise our stays on big campsites so one question is about wifi access and how this can be resolved without costing a fortune? Any suggestions? There are also a myriad of guidebooks out there about campsites, tours etc. Can anyone recommend which one or ones are the most useful. I've been looking at the "Michelin l'europe en camping car" guide which is in French (which I do speak) but would be grateful for any advice on this or alternatives.

    Many thanks - and I'm sure there will be lots of other questions !!
