    I want to put a full Glossary of motorhome terms on the site as I'm sure newbies would find it useful. It would be good if it could encompass as much as we can.

    You can add the words and descriptions if you like, but just the words will do. Include slang terms like Tugger and Toad, you don't have to think of a whole alphabet worth, just add any old word that should be included... Get the idea. Thanks for you help:Smile:

    A A-Frame - Aire ? ?
