    Mosel Rolling Meet.

    Each summer we do the Mosel rolling meet on FUN but I thought it a good idea to include RV owners who may be interested. The Stellplatz at Reil is big enough for the largest outfit with ground level dump and 16 amp electric all for the princely sum of 60 Euros per week. It has river and...

That coach was the dogs danglies in its day, but only fit for breaking...
