    Today seen a MH with overcab side window wide open whilst travelling, one thing I don't understand is.
    Could he not hear the wind noise, feel a draught, vibration?
    Wonder if it made it back to base, site, in one piece?

    Did pull along side on motorway pointing to it but not sure he realised even then!

    I always check all windows, locker doors etc when leaving a site, never check at home as they are not opened when parked up.

    I passed one chap in the spring heiki fully opened.......i drew along side him and my dearest pointed to his roof light.........just ignored us and carried on.

    Could be very expensive when it blows right off

    I once had the frightening experience of the roof light blowing open in the huge draught of an oncoming coach. The two catches supposedly holding it were both broken in the incident - another Duct tape moment.
