    Shipping smaller stuff from the USA

    Roof repair recommendations

    I've been to look at a toy hauler, it's pretty good apart from the roof, it's not leaking now but has some historical water ingress & will need a section of the roof repairing. If I had somewhere & some time, I'd happily do it myself but I have neither at the moment. Any recommendations...

    Dash cameras abroad

    I've only just found this out, by chance reading of something on Facebook, dash cam use in some other countries is prohibited & in Austria it's actually illegal to own one! I'm not quite sure how that works when travelling through but it's worth reading & considering your actions. Or how it...

    Driving licence (old paper type)

    Who has still got an old paper driving licence? There has been no requirement to update these to a photo card style, so I'm sure that quite a few people who have not changed address in the last decade will still have one. If you do, please check with DVLA that your licence is on file, I've just...
