    did you really think you would catch anyone out?

    Did you really think anyone would be caught out:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I know some motorhome owners are a bit slow to catch up on the regs, but I think they all know it is the 1st April...

    Good try

    Sea France have gone bust and it is now 2012....

    Must try harder...:Wink::Wink:


    Apparently though P&O, DFDS and LD Lines are all now charging full commercial freight rates for all RV's over 5000kg!

    Not had time to read all the posts here but I think there must be some kind of mistake...

    My friend just Skyped me and he just went through the Tunnel with an "A" frame no trouble at all...

    JJ :Cool:

    PS... on arriving in France he was given his crossing fee back as he was the 100th motorhome with an "A" frame to use the tunnel that week and then the Gendarmes gave him a new sat nav (with speed traps still on it) and a box of breathylisers...

    It is new French government policy to be nice to the Brits
