American RVs in the UK

It's been a while, but something Jeffrey and I like to do every once in a while is to go to an RV show and walk through the motorhomes. Yes, we dream a little bit of retiring, getting a motorhome, and traveling around the country. Of course, by the time we retire and are ready to travel the country, the Tumbleweeds will be tired of traveling - and I volunteered us to use their trailer. That trailer is nice!

What I didn't know, until tonight, is that American motorhomes are sold in the UK - since the late 1970s. Travelworld RV sells both new and used RV's. People interested in buying one can either visit their showroom, browse through the RV's listed on the website, complete with pictures, specs and floorplans, or sign up to get regular stocklists via email. If you're really in the market to buy a motorhome and travel in the UK, that would be a really good way to keep up with what is available. Also, it's really nice to be able to see a lot of detail on each available RV. These things look so comfortable!

What I don't like about the site, and a lot of sites are this way, is that you have to scroll down on every single page to get to the actual information on that page. It would be nice if that top section with the links and pictures could somehow be combined so that it was half the height. Less scrolling. Easier to access information. It's good that every page is consistent, just maybe it could be smaller. Also, on the front page, I wasn't sure what they were telling me because there's a missing word:
by selecting the (missing word) you will open full listings of all in stock RV's.
What am I supposed to select? I did manage to find the listings - under RV Sales - and I enjoyed browsing, even though I don't plan to buy an RV any time in the near future. I can still dream, right?

  1. Did you know that they pay people to deliver those from the factory to the dealer? They have to be driven, sometimes a long distance. You can get paid to drive it, and then get your return trip taken care of too. Maybe you could do that. The kids are old enough to take care of themselves.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
