    Good post George, thank you.

    Echoes our thoughts entirely - nice to see a report on the subject., rather than heresay.

    Hi John

    That article does not say that people are not robbed, only that the R College do not believe that any gas exists capable of commiting robberies with....

    Nice one GT, I have read articles by individual anaesthetists that dismissed the gas attacks, but a statement by the Royal college of anaesthetists has put that old perrenial to bed for good (with a bit of luck:Wink:)

    Whilst I agree with the sentiments of this report I am suspicious of its origins,I have read it or others like it, almost word for word, and the date at the bottom keeps changing???

    Hi Geo

    But this is on the Royal College website, the other I believe was a letter or eamil being quoted.

    So we were very tired then?

    Caravan club paid out as robbery with violence because our loss was above the limit they allowed for straight loss.

    I find it very arrogant of others to suggest it's a myth when it's actually happened to people who have no reason to lie.

    There are mothers who have spent time in prison dues to experts incorrect opinions/advice.

    You were robbed John, no one is suggesting you are lying. The perps may well have used gas. Its just that the RC of anaesthetists think this highly unlikely.

    Wouldn't it be nice if one of these experts were a motorhomer/lorry drivers and got caught out.

    T B lair quoted us cast iron expert opinions about Iraq before we invaded it:Wink:

    Agree

    John, I agree with you on this issue. People have been wrongly jailed on the evidence by some of these so called experts.:cry:
    I would rather trust the opinion from people on the ground.

    I find it personally hurtful when this topic is raised time and time again and can only reiterate it happened to us and please be careful where you stop.

    Have any of you ever been robbed at home where the perpetrator actually entered the bedroom while you were asleep? it's horrible!!

    An alarm is no use as your out by then (plus I don't sell them)

    I thought we vetoed 'expert' opinion on a previous post.. :RollEyes:

    Anyway, there are hundreds if not thousands of gassing reports, were they all drunk, liars or both .. and yes I've read the experts opinions why it's impossible without killing someone in the process or have a van explode and the theory that they are only insurance scams or stories put about by gas detector manufacturers.

    Having met John and heard his story plus dozens of others testimony I am convinced that these attacks do happen...
    I don't know what gas is used or how it's administered, I'll leave that to the 'experts':Wink:

    Are you sure?Nitrous oxide for one.Easily obtainable via Hotrodders etc.I would suggest the members of the Royal College Refer to actual evidence rather than their textbooks.IMHO.

    Cost

    As you all know, I believe that these gas attacks happen, but guessing what sort of people are doing these attacks I would expect it to not to be an astronomically expensive gas as it would have to be cost effective to make it worth while.

    Nitrous is not that expensive?

    It is the obvious choice.Sad but in my opinion true.I think we as Motorhomers/RVers should be standing shoulder to shoulder asking why this serious issue is being refuted by so-called experts, not arguing amongst ourselves whether this is actually happening.I personally believe the reports and evidence given by victims.

    Another slant

    Now, I am going to put another slant to things.
    Although I have heard of many gas attacks, and robberies, I have never heard of the vehicle been stolen by this method!:Eek!:
