Hi,

I think this is a superb idea opening an English section for foreign campers. Lots of campers on the continent are eager reading about how to get to Sweden, most friends in other camper forums which I participate in as Moderator are interested which road - ferry to take. What is the best : both bridges or the most common Rodby Puttgarden - Helsingor Helsingborg. Ferries - bridges vary a lot in price all depending if the camper is >6m or >3.5 metric tons high or low season.

Praise to the people starting this idea :)

Yes Rolly - and all - the same rules applies also in the English section as in the Swedish parts of this webbsite, there is no remarks done whatsoever when it comes to spelling and grammar.
Inquiries and questions are welcome, our helpful members and staff usually will do the best to be of assistance in the area of Mobile Home travelling and living and also trying to help out in case of emerging technical glitches.

Welcome to our website!

Kjell,

I really hope the eager of members - staff willing to help non Scandinavian natives doesn't wear off as fast as it was created. Even you mentioned spelling - grammer won't be taking into considaration it's still is a heavy burden specially when it comes for example clarifying a certain item and translating it into technical terms. I've started a very similar project in another forum, it ain't easy I know what I am talking about.

Shure Rolly, it all depends on the helpfullness mankind in general is willing to show to the next fellow man but particularly what our members and staff here in our club will do when it comes down to be of assistance.

Have also personally some experience of being an 'alien' in in an RV (Recreational Vehicle) club abroad and you are right, there seems to be a kind of 'threshold' for the natives to respond to inquiries from us aliens.

Let's hope we do have a lower threshold here and that we will accept our comrade RV-ers - abroad or not - as nice as we can!

And your experience Rolly, may also come in handy here at HBK, the total knowledge of Motor Home related things in HBK cranks up a significant step with every bit of experience our members will contribute with!

Hakan,

Haven't properly found my way around sa as starters I insert the links here :

Camperchat (active as moderator)
FORUM - CAMPERSITE.BE - FORUM :: Index (member)
www.camperforum.nl :: Index (member)

The above mentioned forums communicate in their respective local language so it might be a bit tricky to follow the actual issues. If any help is require do not hesitate to call upon me.

here´s some links to sites I visit sometimes to get impressions from abroad
UK Motorhomes, Motorhome Information, Motorhomes Reviews, Motorhome Forum, motorhome fun, Sales, Campsites -> News

RV.Net Open Roads Forum

a Ducato-forum with a content which would be of interest for most motor-home owners
Sorry, das Forum wurde geschlossen.

and a link to the site for Hymer-owners which could be of interest even for non Hymer-owners because of the threads with a content belonging to Fiat- and MB-chassies
HME - HYMER Mobil Eignerkreis e. V. im Internet

Kjell,

It seems like the English section of this forum is in dire straits, there is absolutely an urgent need for some form of adrenalin to make it survive ;). All suggestions are welcome.

Ain't an easy question that one, dear rolly!

Might give some visitors here if one send greetings from Sweden in RV sites abroad and includes the URL to HBK in the mail!

Could be worth a try?
;) :D

Kjell,

Been thinking the same thing but not an easy task. I merely suggest, it could be a very good practice in English for many among us on this forum polishing up their languages skills for the next coming summer, it sure doesn't hurt does it ;)

Hej Arne.
Du får nöja dig med de svenska sidorna.:wink:
De engelska är ju för dem som inte förstår svenska.
