ANY size wagon as they handle service vehicles - fire-engines, buses . . . .etc
 
If your in Devon or Cornwall they're rare as hens teeth.

We found one.

Gusscott Coaches,
Halwill Junction,
Nr Holsworthy,
Devon.

Tel (01409)221661

It's on the Devon Cornwall border and is a good "old fashioned" type of garage. We've taken a 33 footer there with no problems.
There an RV friendly C/L nearby ( Walnut Farm) but it's a bit tight and they can only take one RV at a time. Electric hookup is via 13 amp plug - so take your adapter with you.

Thanks Paul, I drive past them all the time on my way to store my Winnie. Wondered why they had RVs in their yard

Another one for mid Devon - just had their ATF (ministry) test lane approved for Class 4 (us) - any length / any weight - can test 7 days a week - long opening hours - (Thursday during the day should be avoided as the lane is in use for 'ministry' testing, but after hours Thursday OK)

Easy access from the A30 D/carriageway

Familiar with RVs - I and others use them for maintenance - so perhaps of help to others

(They also do heavy recovery and are familiar with the vagaries of the construction / towing / recovery of our vehicles - they have the appropriate equipment (having learnt on ours!! :lipssealed::lipssealed: :cry::cry:)

Not every Class 4 MOT station can accommodate the BIG RV's for example Signature RV's cannot get our Discovery into their garage where the brake tester rollers are, that is unless they have now made the entrance door a little higher? :(

Hi, being new to RV ing last year and having acquired one which sat since 2008 I have now found two these are:

Signature motor homes Wolverhampton sorted mine with little or no fuss no rip off carried out a little work all done for £ 700 quid which considering it had been standing I was expecting 2 + k and would have paid it so good result going back there this year.

Also

Found Dave Evens Motor homes again in Wolves however he does take them off site but you can travel with him to the testing station, will use him for my new awning back end of this year, appears to be a sound guy.

Hope this helps?

Was somewhat alarmed and puzzled on reading that Martin Motor Services, Willenhall have stopped MOTing large RV's so just this second contacted them.

It appears this is only temporary possibly a few weeks as they are having a new MOT bay installed.

Stoke on Trent/ Staffordshire moorlands area try Robin Hood Coaches on the A523 Leek/Macclesfield rd about 1mile out of Leek. They did mine 18 months ago and were very helpful.:001_smile:

Hope it's not too long now, they moved to a new premises in the same road earlier this year and temporarily stopped RV MOTs then until they installed their new bay, not long now I trust

Seemed a really friendly and helpful firm - the only ones who would come out when I was stuck in a layby in the snow in the back of beyond heading out towards Lowestoft Ness :) From what I saw of them I would recommend

If your RV has a serious condition / illness, then "Motor Home Medics" are right next door, should you need them.

Also if you contact Motor Home Medics they can arrange the MOT for you. There is also a great site just down the road to stop over if need be at http://www.briarfields.net/ with plenty of RV pitches.
