Dear Fellow Motorhomers,
November and the arrival of the darker nights is getting closer, however it’s not necessary to hibernate your motorhome and using it is an excellent way of keeping it in good shape throughout the cooler months.
GB Motorhome Tours have three trips taking place over winter; whilst our French Christmas Extravaganza tour and Canary Islands tour are now fully booked for this winter, there is still the possibility of joining our February Cote d’Azur & Carnivals tour for which we have tickets reserved for tour participants to two of the main events that take place along the chic French coast at this time of year. As well as the carnivals the tour includes excursions to Monte Carlo, the Gallimard perfume factory and the loop gorge, along with a number of group meals to enjoy.
Recently we received an email from Gordon & Maureen Greetham who over many years have travelled extensively with GB Motorhome Tours, in 2008 Gordon celebrated his 80thbirthday on the very first night of our Turkish Delight tour, they wrote:
“Maureen and I would first like to thank you for sending us the ongoing newsletters of GB Motorhome Tours. Although we are both limited by our age now we still keep active with our latest motorhome in the UK, but are always left with the desire to travel in Europe, having said that we have so many unforgettable memories from our adventures with ‘GB’. In our latter years touring Europe, visiting places that we never thought would have been possible. Our greatest achievement was our tour of Turkey, and still love it when talking to fellow motorhomers about our GB Motorhome Tours travels when they say “you went there with a motorhome“ !!!
Best wishes to all the ‘GB’ team and thank you for providing us with all the great holidays & adventures we have had over the years with you.”
For those looking to join a tour and not wishing to travel so far for next year, our Emerald Ireland 2018 tour is now available. This has been fully researched again this year with many great places included for you to enjoy; its full itinerary is now available on our website or by clicking the name above and the tour includes excursions to Belfast with the Titanic Experience, Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, Cork City and of course Dublin. Reservations for the tour can be made on the GB Motorhome Tours website or by telephoning us.
Before then whilst travelling throughout the winter in your motorhome an issue to deal with when moving on after a cold night can often be condensation on the inside of the windscreen. A way of clearing this is to run the motorhome engine and have the cabs heater blow warm air on it, this can be time consuming and frustrating to neighbouring campers. An alternative is to carry a compact electric fan heater and place this on the dashboard around 20 minutes before departure, switch on and allow its hot air to blow onto the screen. By changing the direction of the heater periodically you’ll have a completely clear and dry windscreen ready for your departure.
