The problem with it not being used much is unless stored undercover the brakes will suffer, rust will get to the discs and callipers can seize up and you don't want something this big with dodgy brakes. Also tyres un used will end up with a flat spot because of the weight on them if you don't over inflate them or take the weight off them.

Yes good idea with the bike but can you get your groceries on a bike? As much as we enjoyed the 2 weeks the shopping was a real pain. In the end we found a Supermarket that I could stop in a bus stop to drop my wife off, I went out of town until she rung me to come and collect her.

The other problem I had forgotten about was driving on the motorway in the wind, a head wind meant we were restricted with speed and a side wind meant it was difficult to keep it in a straight line especially when passing or being passed by other tall vehicles.

Caravans are cheaper, no tax no MOT,cheap insurance often more spacious and easier to store.
Cheers Rich.

My sister and her husband had a quite lovely motorhome they bought new.

As said in earlier posts, it was seldom used, and residing in Germany, a set of winter tyres were required, not to mention the German regulations regarding such vehicles. I can't list what they were, only that they were over and above UK requirements.

As with any second hand vehicle, they took quite a hit on the resale value.

Lovely to tour about in though.
