So excited, we collect our caravan tomorrow and have it towed to our seasonal pitch. ................. I can't wait. I am fully prepared to step back and let hubby do the things he feels the need to do, ie set stuff up. Otherwise it may result in arguments! What should I prepare for?!

So it that how it goes in your van, other way round I expect with my wife setting up everything. We get our first caravan on the 29th and I'm counting the days, we'll be touring unlike yourself.

 

I can't tell you what to prepare for as I have no idea either, however we can hope to spend quiet time with our family and letting our worries go away.

 

Good luck!

Take it slowly, you don't have a train to catch. Any queries then ask your neighbours. Take chairs and a table and the important bottle of wine and. .......the corkscrew!

We are going away in our first caravan for the first time later today. I'm a little nervous. My teenage daughter is not so smitten with the idea and posted the type of vehicle she would like to go away in. Think 'meet the fockers' with Robert de niro. Anyway our 8 year old is very excited.

So happy for you too, pick mine up next Saturday. Hope you have a great time as we have had in ours, didn't think I'd ever talk her into changing our old van for a new one :)

:goodpost: Definitely don't forget the wine the corkscrew and a couple of glasses. Most of all enjoy

Cleaning the House while the kids are at home is like clearing snow with it still snowing

Provisional delivery date for mine is 18th March but still no confirmation from the dealer. Getting impatient!

Exciting getting your first van! We had to write a procedure list of everything to check and do when setting up and packing away and we're always paranoid about leaving roof lights open or aerials up! Enjoy all!!

Oh wow, thanks for all the replies. We came back today. Loved every minute of it, yes hubby does all the tinkering around he even made all the meals. That never happens at home so I'm enjoying it for now!
We got all set up but we felt real amateurs when all the other happy campers arrived with wood to site their vans on and setting up decking. Its to stop the van sinking or something. ............. Oh well something to do next time we go. Made a few new friends and even our little dog was well behaved.
Why didn't we do this sooner? Oh I also have a list longer than my arm of things we "need" from food bags to a little hoover. Oh and we did forget the wine glasses so we had prosecco in mugs, classy!

Best of luck to those still awaiting their first outing!

If your van is new keep checking for all the faults that come about

"Oh ye of little faith!!!!!" :)

Sadly no van anymore but 35 years was a good run

just come back from a long weekend in Derbyshire ( lickpenny site ) brilliant to get out for the first time, weather reasonable managed to cycle two trails. The site has an offer throughout 2014, you can pitch up for 4 weeks ( EHU ) provided you stay for at least 2 nights ( £38 ) then the other non stay nights are £3 per day, so we have left the caraven there for the next 4 weeks and paid £212 ( low season ) for the period, we only live 30 miles from the site so were off every friday evening for the next 4 weeks, can't wait . Also booked 4 weeks in july £254 ( high season ). I dont consider this to be too much to pay, considering dragging the caravan back home putting it into an awkward park-up spot, emptying it etc, etc.
