    Thanks Rob. Who's Ron Fenton?

    Can we drive through Switzerland without having to take hairpin bend roads ?

    A quick update; we did the journey north to south through Switzerland in Sep and south to north in Oct. We didn't take the trailer in the end, we were solo but leading our friends. Although everything in Switzerland is expensive the one thing that hadn't increased in cost in over 10 years was...

    Receiving Goods from the US

    I looked briefly at 0700 this morning before dashing off to work (:oops:) and it said goods were £59.62 + VAT; shipping was £74.62 or £92 and something for a very slightly faster service, which I believe does include duty; didn't think it included VAT though? To my tight-fisted nature this seems...

    Receiving Goods from the US

    There was a post last week where a few members mentioned their preferred method of getting stuff from the US. I have sourced the parts I want from Rock Auto but the shipping costs are prohibitive at one and a half times the cost of the goods! I am aware of the STS route which Shovelheadrob...

    Adi - The Ghost Buster

    If you mean a complete re-build, i.e. body, interior, engine, transmission, rear axle et all, I reckon you're talking upwards of 10 grand! And it's not a '59!

    Bounder in for a facelift

    Living, and driving for a living, in Kent where the ratio of UK trucks to foreign trucks is around 50/50 I can categorically state that no foreign truckers use beam benders of any description.

    MOT time once more

    That's the sort of thing. But not so "sticky out" if I fit them to the front end at high level!

    But I do want one. I absolutely love the '59 Cadillac and the estate version is super rare!

    Americana

    We used to go every year about 20 years ago. We had about 8 years of it when Chris and Bev Jackson ran it and, as MikeyRV says, there was never any trouble when Chris employed the local HA Chapter to provide security. We went strictly for the vintage rock'n'roll and there was always plenty of...

    Caravan pump king card closing

    Yeah I just signed up for my Fuelpecker card. I've use the Pumpking card successfully because I never fuel up over 150 litres!

    Interesting RHD RV

    Correct! We met a couple from Oz when in Croatia. They travelled to the Ukraine where they had an off-road motorhome custom-built to their own specification on a huge MAN chassis. It's left hand drive and they're touring the world in it (yes, the world!) and when they've finished they will sell...

    Can't wait to see the uplifted Bounder when it's done. Will you be at The Cuckoo Fayre in May Adi?

    MOT time once more

    Regarding the high-level front markers I don't really want them to read/check too much! However, if push comes to shove, I will fit a couple of those "sticky-out" markers on the top front corners and feed them from the outer amber markers. You know the ones; they show white to the front and red...
