    Yes, maybe it's because it's over 29' 9".

    please note

    please note I did not get stuck at Peterborough which was ten times worse.. but someone had laid a rubber road way over the mud at Malvern and all those europeans had made a real mess of them with there front wheel drives....

    I plead in mitigation that there was 70 plus MHF and a lot of other motor homes and caravan from another club also using the same gateway and track.. well over 100 had trodden or driven the track before me... I was told that even a 4 x 4 navaho had got stuck....

    and Brian it is only 23'3" no it has not shrunk by 6" which might well have with the rain.. but I read the label wrong.

    I would not say you were stuck Bob, :Wink: you just could not go the way you wanted.:Laughing:

    Once we got you heading in the right direction you flew over the road. :Rofl1:

    No one got stuck on our field, a couple just needed to borrow the SUPER MATS !!!!!!! That our right hand man has at the moment.:BigGrin:

    And will soon loose if he keeps leaving them outside his van. :Rofl1: Bob.

    that is true

    Yes that is true.. more off a lot of wheel spin not going anywhere fast, except side ways... but no where near like Peterborough.. certainly no 10" troughs dug out by some vehicles.:Cool:

    The mud mats under the traction wheels and a slight reverse on to the grass opposite our area and then a case of gunning it across the road on to the grass... no one got stuck on the grass area.

    to much funnels in to a small area before they could break out on tot he grass... but the mats work... I have a large on of them I use to load my power chair up the trailer ramp.. works every time.

    Bob
