Hi, I've only been introduced to caravanning last year. Managed my first 43 years without ever stepping inside one and then last year a 2004 Hymer Nova 2 berth landed in my lap. Can honestly say i wasn't too keen on the idea but was persuaded by my better half to give it a go. 4 weeks later, towbar fitted and awning hastily bought and we were off on our first weekend over easter. It was a baptism of fire and a lesson in reading the manual before you go, but as a family of 4 we all enjoyed the adventure. After 2 other stints during the summer the van has grown on me. It's in excellent condition (solid German? build quality) and has been fully serviced and valeted ever year it seems. I have been sleeping in the awning and my wife and boys in the van. Although it's a 2 berth the bed is quite spacious. However, looking forward we want to caravan for the next 3/4 years while the boys are still young enough so my plan is to upgrade to a younger (07/08) 4 or 5 berth next year. I like the lounge at either end set up for best use of space but i think that means a 5 berth. So basically i have no experience so i will be asking lots of questions. Apologies in advance for my ignorance in all things caravan.
