Hello everyone,
We are an English couple who moved to sunny Malta about 4 years ago. :D We used to live in the Midlands (Worcestershire area) and had a Caravan for many years. We are now missing our Caravan very much indeed :cry: However, with any luck next year we plan to purchase our first Motorhome and drive it all the way through Europe and import it into Malta.

We will be looking for a used Motorhome with Automatic gearbox as I am disabled and cannot drive a Manual. Although my husband will be doing most of the driving, I love to get behind the wheel too! :lol:
It will take a lot of planning and I just hope we manage to find our dream motorhome when we arrive in the UK next year.

So, if anyone out there is thinking of selling their beloved MH next year, please keep us in mind.

Kindest regards to you all,
Chris & Kelvin.

Welcome to the site and I hope you will find your dream MH, keep an eye on our for sale section and you never know you may find it on here. Not a lot of scope for MH'ing on Malta I guess, but never mind you can just keep on dreaming :wink:

:D Hi Krispit, and welcome.
A silly question I know, but where in Malta are you going to go with a motorhome? I presume you will be ferrying back and forth to Pozzallo or Catania? Any way I hope you find the right one. You could do worse than look at some Italian dealers, and probably cheaper too.
good luck.

Welcome to motorhomefacts krispit.

Best of luck finding your dream motorhome. It will be fun driving back through europe and maybe you will keep delaying your return to Malta as there will be so many nice places on route to stop and explore :)
Where will you be going on Malta :?: I went there once when I was stationed in Cyprus with the RAF, I was in a swimming competition! Loved the place, met the Red Arrows team also. Fond memories.

I liked Malta, I think, as all I can remember is the Gut which I think has now gone. Oh happy, happy days.

Hello again, thanks for all your replies.

As you know Malta is very, very small! We both miss the English country side and as you can imagine, it goes very dry here from about April until the rains come in September. There are no Mountains, or beautiful rolling hills, with big old trees, lakes or Rivers etc, so after a while the scenery becomes a bit boring!
We do have a sister Island called Gozo, which in my opinion is much more pleasing to the eye. They seem to take pride in their little island, but that is not the case here on the mainland which is a real shame.

I suppose you are all wondering why we came :roll: , well the sun and sea does wonders for those aches and pains you know :lol: (And I am half Maltese on my mothers side, who also lives here too).

We will be using the MH for everyday use like some of you do, but mainly to travel directly from Malta to Reggio di Calabria in Italy by ferry which is reasonable cheap. There are a quite a few nice quiet areas which we have found here on Malta with very nice sea views which will be great having the MH.

There are only a few MH's in Malta, in fact the Maltese have only just started to enjoy camping out in a tent :? , we now have a nice, but very small camp site with electric hook-up points! I suppose it's a start in the right direction.

Thanks again to you all and I will keep you posted.
Chris & Kelvin.

Greetings from Malta

Hi there,
It is great to hear from someone living in Malta, I lived there for five years, just outside ST Juliens, and really enjoyed my time there, but I came back to sunny Wales.
I still have friends out there including Banis oki koki who came to visit us here a couple of months ago. I think you would have a great time over there in a motor home, the only problem will be that everyone will want to look at it, they love something different, I used to have a pink (yes pink) escort convertible over there and people used to stop me and ask me to sell it, I did sell it out there and apparently it is still going strong. I hope you find the motorhome you are looking for.
good luck Kerry

HAve you tried their big lift in Valetta. I think its safety record is on par with British Railways. Maybe urban myth of course but I did notice that the Maltese are on average..short.
