I'm a 70 yo Australian, Vietnam veteran. I travel for most of the year around Oz in my Mitsubishi Delica 4wd camper-van and love the lifestyle.
I'm going to be in the UK in 2017 - planning to buy a small, cheapish motor home to see the sights for possibly up to a year. I hope to sell the motor home when finished.
I'd like to befriend a local who might consider helping me with buying a MH, registration, insurance etc. Also information re driving there as an "old fart", any other useful matters and recommendations of destinations etc.
Hope everything's blooming up there for you - summer here is dragging on. 39°C in Perth tomorrow.
Hello my son in law to be is an Aussie, he is always cold only been here a year though. We all meet up through each year in different locations around the country, it's mostly done as cheap and free as possible apart from the booze. I am sure you will get help, one of our friends drives a Delica... Penny & Ron

Hi bushrat. It's a different kind of motorhoming here in the UK. I did a tour down under back in 2000 & covered some serious milage in a Mitsubishi L300 express, the 4x4 version. Had a great time in oz & would tour there again, i loved it. I'm sure you'll be able to find a van here to last you a year without spending over the odds. You can get tins of VB in some places too ;-)
kernowjon: Hi we nearly always freecamp - old age pension gives loads of leisure time but too little money to pay camp site fees. The van has solar panel, large water tank So we are pretty self sufficient. Jon
