Motorhome camping

Hi, my 1st post

We have just ordered our Honwave 3.2 air floor and the honda 5hp engine, also got the wheels, should be with us in the next couple of days. (previously had a fish n dive kayak, but now with two kiddies to keep occupied, i think this is the way to go)

Its going to live in the garage part of our camper, which we have also just purchased, so looking for good campsites with easy access to the water, (river or sea)

Any advice on our 1st outing greatfully received

Motorhome camping

hi and welcome,
depends where in wales you live.
we've just come back from a great weekend in anglesey. great campsite near holyhead called penrhyn bay caravan park. great beach and good slipway.
you could try that or go on the uk campsite website and look for campsites on the beach. we went to pentewan sands down near st. austell in cornwall last year. great site although very expensive at 40 a night without electric. also try the boatlaunch website for places to launch throughout the uk.

Is this a "Toy Hauler" sort of camper? Half living space, half box-trailer with a ramp? Those are pretty nice.

Congrats on the boat;

Hi, unfortunatley not, its going to have to be deflated, folded up and put in the small garage, (just big enough for a small scooter) i like that phrase "toy hauler" will have to get me one of those..

Thanks uny165 for your help, im in south wales, but with the motorhome im willing to travel.

We have just had a great long weekend staying at Shell Island (just up the road from Barmouth), 1/2 tidal slip, a lot of fun had out in the bay, where a few people there with RIB's and SIB's, as you've got an RV though you would have to put a small tent up to "sleep in" as they only have a licence to allow camping in tents (but there are always loads of RV's as they are allowed as transport!)

Due to collect the 3.2 honwave and 5hp honda 4 stroke engine tomorrow.
Will the 5hp be enough? went for that one as its quite light to carry etc.
They did have a 10hp there, but its heavier and costs more... bear in mind i want to store in the camper, but dont want an underpowered engine and struggle to get anywhere

A scooter garage is a proper luxury for storing a SIB and outboard - just roll the SIB up and store it on the floor with the outboard on top. I carry my SIB under the (low) fixed bed in my van, but I stopped keeping the 10hp outboard in there, 'cos of the smell of petrol - I liked it myself, but Ms DHD didn't.
