    The van is MOTed for another year. Got the last greenie MOT sheet I will ever have, might frame it for prosperity before they go over to white tesco A4 paper.......

    I now sit on a nice new pair of shock absorbers to match the new springs I put on recently, I really must get on that diet.......the poor van just can't cope.

    Love my new braces though.......

    Only £500 for a test on your wonderful rig? A bargain... 50 nights away and it is only £10 per night...

    ...on reflection maybe you should get away more often in order to get better value for your money...:Wink:

    My 1994 Fiat Hymer passed yesterday no problems .Tester said he did not need to do an emmisions test as Motorhomes don't need to have them.I think it a bit strange as it had an emmisions test last year
