    Fantastic!

    Although, with the sag on my old roof I don't think I'd be wanting any more bodies up there.

    imagine forgetting you were up there and needed an urgent midnight pee. that first step could be a killer ::bigsmile:

    Maggiolina are a very posh version of that. I saw one on a van in Spain this year and was impressed - but they must get hot in the sun although potentially you could make a two-storey MH! http://www.autohome-official.com/en/

    i thought it was normal to have a tent on the roof . ha ha .
    yes it was a roof tent like jim mentioned . brownchurch landrovers one .
    but went well on my vw or bongo. not so sure on having a tent on the trailer knocking in the pegs might cause a problem if it rained . ha ha

    maggiolina or the columbus are very nice . but expensive .
    the one i have actually is the one that is in some of the brownchuch advert pics. it was the first one of this style as i was in a hurry for one they took it off their show landrover . great bit of kit . in fact if you open the front and back even in africa its very cool up there . amazing how much draft there is at that height.

    Once saw a campingcariste erecting an awning and hammering in rock pegs into the tarmac floor here...nobody blinked an eyelid....the French aren't bound by our H&S rules etc....probably opened another bottle of wine I think.

    As an aside (ScotJ)....we were at Mimizan plage (again) on our way back from wintering in Spain and met our good friends Alan & Sylvia from Cornwall / Leeds who remember you fondly.

    regards

    Allen & Eileen
