I can, and have, smiled as I clung to the undercarriage of a light aircraft at 14,000ft, But do I have the courage to drill a hole in my motorhome? NO

Great job.

Very good job.

Just a question.

Why not a sliding window?

As the door can't now be opened if the window is open.

But i think this window is more secure.

Just wondered.


Great job great photo's.

I whould s----- myself if I did that to my motorhome.

A sliding window at 500 wide would not fit, that is the smallest manufactured.
Closer inspection will reveal I removed the window stays. It will never be opened.
