    When I bought my Motorhome it came with a spare set of headlights for driving abroad, I used them last year and will be fitting them today for my trip next week to France for a month.

    Does anyone else use them?

    I must say I normally use tape, but as I got these 'free' with the van have found them dead easy to switch over, 2 mins a side. I have no idea what a set costs but they can"t be cheap :Eeek:

    I can remember Jane using gaffer tape once and not only could I not see where I was going, :Doh: It left the glue on the glass and she had to use petrol to get it off. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Our last van we used the stick on things, :Smile: on this van we have a switch on the back of each headlight for driving in europe. :thumb: 2 minutes at the port job done. :BigGrin: Bob.

    I've been waiting for the manufacturers to supply the euro headlights for my citroen C4 for almost 2 months now. I can't get my car registered until thats done.
    So I'm still using deflectors, its just as well the French MoT doesn't start till the vehicle is 4 years old, or it'd fail.
    Luckily my camper is french, so no probs.
