Daft question, but do all motor homes come with, the stabilisers that is, not the corners
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.)
..........Or Bertie Bassett............
Yes the metal things BB how long does the van have to be before you get them, any idea
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? Maybe Tootles the Brave can assist if I can't.
Im thinking of windy weather and feeling seasick lol
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.
Ruth you will also notice that Toots allows his grey water to run freely. This makes you popular wherever you may be!
This was taken before we bought the truck...
Thank you, good to know I can have them fitted if I feel the need
You cant get out of it by using the old fishing ploy. Your on three weeks loss of Mars Bars.
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!
Denial only adds to your already high standing as a man of great wisdom and knowledge in all things trumpetty!
No need to be sorry, love it
Great! Get the kettle on then.
But only after you've wound the stabilisers down Ruth..............toots is well......................very windy!
