    Just been looking at the current interest rate

    $1.72249/£1........:Angry:

    This is not a good time to buy or ship from the States.

    I hope it recovers as we were looking at 1.98 at the beginning of the year.

    On the price of an RV that's a substantial amount more.:Doh:

    The way RV sales are in the USA at the moment you can more or less dictate the price to them!! :Eeek:

    As long as they are making a profit no matter how small they will sell them :thumb:

    But the weak dollar $$$$ lesson the value of them out there.

    Plus the Yanks cant take on board the price of fuel like us prats do.

    And a few years ago it was $1.30 to the pound. At the time I was being paid my salary in dollars and converting as little as possible to sterling as we were certain it was going to hit parity! :Rofl1:
    Such is life!
