    Having experienced Peterborough this year I decided that we needed something extra to give us a bit of a chance in wet weather.

    Not being inclined to steal bread trays and having no source of damaged ones which are being thrown out I did a search and came across These On eBay. Postage is reduced for multiple quantities (I paid £11 postage for four) but they also allow free personal collection so anybody living near or passing Flint could save on postage.

    They arrived this morning and look pretty solid. All I have to do now is to work out how to cut them down for use :BigGrin:

    The inner surface of the base is smooth, Jim, but the underside isn't and should give plenty of grip. My current thinking is to remove the long sides completely but cut the shorter ends to leave a set of "teeth" which will grip the ground if they are used upside down.

    Graham, I fully expect we will have that.

    With my track record, the only thing that might save me sinking when I park up is to have a 5 cubic yard cement truck follow me about ! :cry: :Doh:

    Having spent the weekend in a field while at T In The Park im so glad i had my bread crate with me. Dont know if you have seen pics on the news but the place was a bog, they had put down a temp road on Thursday but still had to drive 100 yards to it. Yes all the rear wheel drives got off no problem but to see the look in the others as we laid our bread crates one after the other 10mins later out the field while the rest wait for tractor:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Silverstone Woodlands site also became a little muddy (I say a little muddy out of respect to those who went to Peterborough).

    Thousands of campers and awful weather. Staff at the site worked really hard, security was about as bad as it can get.

    I found myself saying, now if Bob and Jane were here, we'd have none of this trouble.

    Those crates are no good Graham.

    .........Length: 555mm
    .........Width: 655mm
    .........Height: 185mm

    They're too wide, you would have to turn them inside out as well up side down.....:Rofl1:

    are they strong enough for a 7500kg RV Graham ? :Rofl1:

    dont really know what the problem is.......drove off the camping field at Staxtonbury yesterday through 6" of standing water on grass to very muddy uphill slope......no spin, no problem.....

    on the other hand i couldn't get my stepdaughters 4 x 4 kia to grip :Eeek:

    could be the weight difference. :thumb:

    Dunno John - but seeing as we are 3500kg max I don't much care :Laughing:

    I suppose you just crawl your RV off using those jack legs don't you? :Laughing:
