    :Laughing: I've not seen it either. But then again, I am in SPAIN. :Rofl1:

    :Smile: But yes. £1000 a week is NOT unheard of for some. :Eek!:

    In my house
    My mate works on the roads and has a stunning 32foot A class with a toad!!! :Eeek::BigGrin:

    The money he is given for digs more than covers the costs and he charges a few of his mates to sleep in it and prvides em with some breakky.:thumb:

    Its a win-win situation for everyone, he is never late for work, is always available to work if someone doesnt show up, his vehicles are being paid for by someone else (and will be his at the end of the loan period) and he makes a few quid to cover fuel costs etc by providing B&B for a couple of lads (who are also never late and available at the drop of a hat). He even earns a few extra quid as he can also be the site compound over night security guard :Wink:. When he goes home he parks it up on his parents drive so his parents now rent out his old room and make a few extra quid for themselves as well :thumb:

    He has no site fees, water and waste disposal on tap and no-one says a word about the genny chugging away for 6 hours a day!!! :Rofl1::Rofl1:
