    Well done on the build! :thumb:

    You've got a bout of MH now (motor homeitus) and I'm afraid there is NO cure so don't fight it :BigGrin:

    Oh and welcome to MHF.

    Any pics of the conversion?

    Now that's how to do it. Get in and go.

    Vodaphone had an offer of non loaded roaming in EU, have a look on their web site, it might be finishing. As others had said trying to blag free WiFi is the way to do it. I remember one French municipal site that had free WiFi and it was a cheap site too. I've never been so desperate for www to break a journey to find a Macdonalds though. Otherwise you just pay through the nose.

    We'll defo recognise that if we see you in France ! We're there for all of Sept & Oct. Should be mainly in Provence, where it will be hot, but still not sure wether we turn left or right when we get off the ferry ?
    By the way, whereabouts is the photo taken ? Looks good.
    regards

    Can you make them the right size, your big one on your first post widens the form and some goes off screen, then, any text for that whole thread is also formatted too wide.

    I use irfanview to make all posted images 800x600 and 100K file size.

    Small point and no-one will lost sleep if you don't and you could blame the forum engine for not scaling them properly for you.
