    How dreadful for them.

    I hope they didn't lose too much and I hope they don't lose the desire to motorhome.

    Did they pull over before the guns appeared or did they pull over because guns were being pointed?

    Just what I want to hear when I will soon be driving down to Benidorm with the Grandkids in our car.. !!

    Luckily I read things like this on these forums and hopefully it will make me aware enough should something like this happen... I know it's not just motorhomes it happens to.
    Foreign plated cars are easy to target, seen many of the videos on youtube etc....

    fake cops had a go at pulling me over a few miles back from the border at irun near san sebastien about 4 years ago. red toyota with 2 blokes and a woman , had blue flashing light inside and a amateurish looking pop up "stop" sign in the rear window. i didnt stop and they sped off at the final exit before the border. it was dark and they had a go at slowing down in front of me but i was having none of it so on went the full beams and about 6 inches between our bumpers and i think they got the message .
