  1. You can still get some new 6b engine models (130 hp) that are not taxed at the new rate but the 6d engine (140 up) that are rated at the new tax . Swift actually have at the bottom of their brochures that you can ask if there is any old 6b model available on the old tax . I know someone that bought a new Kon tiki unregistered this week collecting in Dec on the old tax they put based to beat the tax increase .

    What site was that Gordon with big pitches ? At the moment just come back from Leamington Spa a few weeks ago and site owner was getting ready for a full site for NEC goers . I have just had a first engine service and in a couple of weeks habitation service then its planned to sit down and book a ferry for next year to Europe and a planned tour of Ireland's Wild Atlantic way on the west coast . What has others got planned ?

    You need paperwork from a vehicle engineer . SVtech would be a good place to start .http://www.svtech.co.uk/
  5. 6 months https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk/temporary-imports
  6. Waving to other MH owners is a set practice owning one which you never see in caravan owners . I find it quite amusing when the wife accidentally waves at oncoming Tesco delivery vans . Dave
  7. I read it is a FPN as a unsecure load they are stopping Motorhomes on . Dave
  8. European motorhomes have garages and the UK manufacturers rely on under the bunks and small batches to the outside . This year is the first year a few UK motorhomes have seen the light and like the Europeans have lifted the rear bed and put in a garage . Dave
  9. Your need a sky box and if it is a manual system then your need a sat finder meter and a compass to find 28.2 East .
  10. it was the question you posted that ask about watching Ski programmes that made everyone think you wanted to watch sport channels .😁 Dave
  11. I had a jockey wheel slide down on my toad trailer behind my motorhome and wreck the jockey wheel although I considered it tight enough . So as a precaution now to stop it possibly happening again I measured the tube diameter 48 mm for mine and ordered a locking collar off eBay which I locked on with a Allen key which is set once that when the jockey wheel up and is parked in its slot and on the tow all the jockey wheel can't hit the road but can still be wound down to unhitch and operate . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Q-Clamp-LOCKING-COLLAR-Pipe-Key-Fitting-Kee-Handrail-2-34mm-3-42mm-4-48mm-179-/272728327643?redirect=mobile Dave
  12. Germany is the first European country to introduce emission restriction bans on motorways as well as cities and I would think other countries will follow . Dave
  13. Have fun David !! Now it's time to start planning a shakedown tour ? Dave
  14. Just a update . Had VB rear semi air suspension fitted with the comfort pack with the air compressor under the driver's seat and the controls and gauges in the dash so the rear can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button . The ride has been improved by less movement passing lorries and less lean at roundabouts and in wind on site . The rear can now be raised a good 6 inches so gives good clearance under my towbar on ramps . Fitted cost about £1000 by Solar solutions (airide) . http://www.solarsolutionsltd.co.uk Dave
  15. I have read that police don't take the fact you are only driving during daylight notto fit deflectors as it is a requirement that headlights are used under some driving conditions during daylight . If think we will see a increase of stopping and fining after March when we part company . Dave
