It is on an American site. I suppose yoiu could argue that the 30k in uk, converted would be around 50usd. RV could refer to recreational vehicle in its' true right, which would cover caravans - though I thought the americans called caravans trailers

of course

This version of events is from an American web source so the 30000 caravan reported yesterday would be $50000 in America.

And of course, anything camping related is an RV in Americaland but it should have correctly been reported as a travel trailer.

And the couple are from. HAMPSHIRE COUNTY, ENGLAND....typical American terminology

Bugger....rainbow beat me to it.
