Thanks for sharing. We rented a MH in Finland/Sweden/Norway several summers ago, and thought about how nice it would be to have something of our own.

So how many times did you get stuck in narrow cobble stone streets?

We were in France last summer and had to make several 3-point turns and climb some stairs with the Opel. TomTom GPS (Claudette) wanted to take us on the shortest route.

We enjoyed France much more than we thought we would, great people in spite of their purported reputation.

You know that European MH can be long (less than yours nevertheless! )and they circulate in city ! but it is necessary to avoid driving in the the old medieval cities ah ah ! [emoticon]
