    Hi all

    we have now left the 'pub' and will be heading to France shortly, first stop Euro Disney for a couple of days then mosey on down toward Spain, perhaps calling in at Parc Verger and then Mimizan to hopefully meet up with Jock n Rita .... After that who knows until September when we join the RVF Moroccan trip ..

    Will try to get Wifi but not too hopeful in France except at Parc Verger so if I disappear for a bit don't think I've abandoned you lot.. :Rofl1:

    Good luck and safe travels to everyone for the coming season..


    Jim and Jan :Smile:


    On site.. today

    I didn't think you could carry anything on the front of a vehicle if it stood out infront of the lights ?? . . . if you are allowed, what's to stop someone carrying a small moped on a frame on the front ?

    Hi Vic

    you may well be right and to be frank I'm not in love with it on the front and am looking into standing it on the tow bar instead, it's a real problem finding a place to carry such a big wheel, few RVs with this size carry spares..

    Hi Jim

    Is there anyway it could go on the roof, less chance of theft as well

    Thought of that but totally impractical, you would need a crane, weighs about 50 kg

    Geo has given his expert advice via PM ..

    I quote :

    it all depends on how clued up your tester is, the vast majority interpret this area incorrectly and most would fail it, under the dangerous projection rule section 6.1 method of inspection. 4, reason for rejection .4
    However, this regulation is not open to interpretation and reads as follows, (Hi lighted the relevant words)
    Reason for rejection 6.1-4
    A sharp edge or projection Caused by damage or corrosion that renders a vehicle dangerous to other road users or pedestrians.

    Now whilst many may agree your modification may cause both, it was a deliberate modification and as such does NOT fall within the description or reason for rejection, Here at Pecks Hill, however you would get a printed advise suitably worded, advising that in my opinion it was dangerous but a PASS never the less
    Hope that helps
    Let us know what he say's
    you may post my comments on open forum if you wish
    Geo

    Thanks for the advice Geo ..

    I agree with Geo (not that often :Laughing:)
    it's a fail if sharp broken parts are potruding to the front
    HGV trucks with "Bull Bars" pass all the time so to do 4x4's with bars on

    Good luck mate
    keep us posted :thumb:
