    Just use it as you would in a car unless there are any weight restrictions in force.

    Only use it when your wife is with you...

    Don`t just park anywhere on double yellow lines... you can still be done if you are causing an obstruction or impeding the flow of traffic...

    Just use your loaf, really.. (y)

    Oops, sorry! :blusher: We think that the 'right' Steve got the message anyway.
    Well, 'wrong steve', (@Steve), if you ever go to Pembrokeshire with your wife and dog then we hope you have a good time too. :smiley:

    If you check AA.com blue badge abroad, good download with EU regs in easy language. I did this plus downloaded interpretation for each language visited to stick alongside badge in windscreen.

    Scotland has different rules from down south. Less of a time limit in Scotland.

    I've just been watching a council contractor (not a council van but a sub-contractor). He had tubs and crate fastened to the inside of his van rear doors so when he opened it the tubs and crates swung out with the doors. He had steps at the back so getting up to the top of the doors was simple for him (and it wasn't a hi-top. Perhaps you could use the idea.... and with an extension piece to the door at a right angle (so that when the door is shut the extension sits along the side wall and when the door is open it forms a screen at the back of the van you have more area inside the van without having to hump crates around. The top shelves / crates / rack which would be too high to access from outside could be used for light bu bulky inside stuff like loo roll, kitchen roll, bin bags and the like :)

    I love thinking about ways to do stuff I do....... not always practical solutions but ideas that might help someone :) When we win the lottery I am going to have a custom conversion that will accommodate our kayaks and our cycles - at the same time!!!!!
