    an elaborate page filler I reckon.

    Yesterday's caravan was reported as a Bailey Louisiana but the photo was of a Bailey Senator

    It is on an American site. I suppose yoiu could argue that the 30k in uk, converted would be around 50usd. RV could refer to recreational vehicle in its' true right, which would cover caravans - though I thought the americans called caravans trailers

    of course :Doh:

    This version of events is from an American web source so the £30000 caravan reported yesterday would be $50000 in America.

    And of course, anything camping related is an RV in Americaland but it should have correctly been reported as a travel trailer.

    And the couple are from. HAMPSHIRE COUNTY, ENGLAND....typical American terminology

    Bugger....rainbow beat me to it.

    It is sad to say human rights over rule the law of theft
    As the family have children they have more rights than the owner
    Similar on squatting eviction can not be undertaken if children were yo be homeless.

    Crazy I know. Who said the law is an Ass !!!
    They. Knew it.

    One other thing. If the gypsy had no road tax / insurance. On that RV. The same applies.
    I got an bloody. £80 fine for being away one month. SORN
    It's all wrong. When your law abiding.
