    Hello everyone,
    I'm Chris Roberts and own a Hymer 655 on the 2.8JTD chassis.
    Many of you know me from my attendance at the shows in my capacity of MD of Wow Tuning. If you're not sure who I am, i'm the big chap who really needs to lose a few pounds!
    Please do not hesitate to contact me for any advice you may want on engine tuning, remapping, tuning boxes, fuel economy, etc as I am happy to share my expertise with you.
    My comments will always be fair, unbiased and based on fact, through my experience in sucessfully remapping over 2,000 motorhomes.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    would have been nice to see a private post first


    Shame you did not start off with a private post before you lunched your sales pitch. If I wanted your type of service I can look at the trader links that are paid for. I for one do not like to see blantant advertising as this from clearly a trader. You are more likly to get members backs up with this kind of post. I support Dodgy's views on this.

    Jim needs to note the subscribers views on this?

    I am sure your advice will be appreciated.:thumb:
    Glad to hear that you have spoken to the Boss Man.:Wink:

    Because.
    You don't tug on Superman's cape
    You don't spit into the wind
    You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
    And you don't mess around with Jim,:Eek!:

    Actually Bob, I joined because literally dozens and dozens of your fellow members have requested that I join this site. Those friends and customers know that I am honest and trustworthy in my advice, often at the expense at making a buck! As for being sales pitch? No, that wasn't intended, however I sure you will agree its always better to be totally upfront in who and what you are rather than hide behind a veil.:Smile:

    as chatter says


    I agree chatter.. we moderate ourselves (or try to.. as Wildman knows it is not easy to keep us in line for the Bath & West show this week)... but I do prefer to know about another motorhome owner and member before I get a sales pitch. As I have not used you I cannot speak from experiance. It is a bit like selling goods at an event, the traders and organisers would soon get cheesed off if we did it... so we stick to the rule (most of the time) so be it here on this site.

    You are welcome as anyone is, as I always say to newbee's but I think as far as I am concerned (I say me) I would have prefered to not see the advertising in the first post. Have you spoken to Jim about a sponsership block as you can see to the right of your screen. I see at the moment that Peter of John Cross Campers is flashing away...he is a dealer and a poster (not sure which some days and when he makes a sales pitch - he is also a fine dealer and I have spent many a £ with him at his shop and at shows).. so it is not just you I remark about. If I want to read adverts I can pick up my MMM copy. I rather hear of interesting or funny posts than to open one to welcome a new comer to find he is plastering an advert at me.

    Anyway welcome and hope we hear from you with general issues as time goes by.

    Everyone has a view and should express it as they think they should as long as it does not become personal or rude / offensive.

    Bob:Eeek:

    Hi Chris, this is exactly the first post that a trader should not make, I should send you an invoice for the part in red, its an advert. :RollEyes: Did you miss this part in the trader rules. :BigGrin:
    Please ensure that you read the rules. Meanwhile, welcome to the fun

    Welcome Chris!

    I see you're from Charlestown! I have family in St Austell and know Charlestown quite well!
    Lovely place, I remember it when the china clay boats used to be there filling up!

    Charlestown

    Hi, yes its beautiful here, I live just up the coastal path from the Rashleigh, which I am sure you must have visited - the best fillet steak in Cornwall!
    I have only seen 2 china clay boats come in since we've lived here (12 years) but I understand that in its hey day as a working port often there was a film of china clay everywhere!

    Oh yes we know The Rashleigh! :Laughing::Laughing:

    I've been visiting Charlestown since about 1960 so I've seen quite a few china clay boats!

    We stay at Doubletrees Farm in St Blazey Gate when we're around there. Great site!:thumb:
