    I think you are asking about the metally things that 'some' vans have to stabilise them when on site Ruth. Not all vans have them and only needed if you have a really long overhang behind the rear wheels or you are a very, very large person. (We're talking Cyril Smith here.)(y)

    There's no hard and fast rule some 7 metre vans don't have them but the first van we had was a tiny Romahome and it did have them. Is there any particular reason this is of interest?(y) Maybe Tootles the Brave can assist if I can't:D.

    My old Hymer camp 64 has them......you find the modern ones are a drop and lock thing. You can have them fitted if it bothers you. I find that when we use the rear lounge, it stops the van moving. You can see mine on the back, in the up position.

    That's a perfectly valid reason in something like our old Romahome but in a 3.5ton coachbuilt or van conversion less likely. There are always places to snuck the van in behind when the wind is strong. (unless your on a Caravan Club site where moving from the pitch between 2300 and 0700 may well result in injury)!;);) PS that's a sad aside from an embittered old man who is not a fan of the otherwise wonderful Caravan Club.(y)

    Ruth you will also notice that Toots allows his grey water to run freely.(y) This makes you popular wherever you may be!:D

    Preferably by the dealer you buy from when you buy it. That way any problems can be sorted easily without third party involvement. Sorry about the banter.......Toots and me are daft!:LOL:
