    Wing mirror glass (twice) - I now carry spares.

    Chimney, on a campsite with a (too) low tree on our designated pitch.

    Both top rear marker lights numerous times - bloody silly square things which I later replaced with rounded ones, and have had no problems since.

    Water Heater vent cover - can't see much point in replacing that.

    Two side door restraints, due to the door slamming into them in strong winds.

    Aerial on my first Hymer. It was right at the top of the side of the luton.
    First tree took that off.

    First time I was washing the side of the van I snapped the door hook off with the washing brush :Doh:

    That would make my nuts the same length as my Todger!
    Making wearing my mankini an even bigger challenge.

    to get back on track :BigGrin:

    Managed to miscalculate going through my gate forwards Yesterday and took off the cover for the hot water system. Super glue now required! I've been going backwards through the same gate for the last seven months without a problem! :Doh:

    Not lost any bits yet did try to drive off with a tree wound into the awning once though. We where staying on a vineyard with France Passion I wound the awning in not noticing a small branch wrapped round it and nearly pulled the side of the motorhome off ..

    I lost one mirrow glass and also a complet wide angle blindspot mirror in Scotland, the builders lorry doing 60mph along a windy twisty narrow road he never stopped and managed to do the same to 3 cars following me it frightened the life out of me andI was afraid to look at the side of the van.
    I now carry spare mirrors and spare wide angle units. I have also fiitted a rearview camera driving blind is not my idea of fun at all.
