    Vehicle Check

    I knew a mechanic many years ago that just used to give a vehicle a high rev run for a couple of miles to clear all the built up crap out of an engine and in effect give it a decoke. I'm not a mechanic but wonder if this would still work?

    tyre upgrade

    Check out Aeon rubber springs in place of the bump stops, easy to fit and relatively cheap to buy. Made a huge difference to my Hymer which weighs over 4500 kilo's.

    Uber motorhomes

    Agree with Geo , I forgot to add in my previous post that my experience was with a large well known dealership and say again, buyer beware no matter where you buy from.

    Uber motorhomes

    Many years ago I went to see a Hymer that was advertised as very low mileage in good condition. The thing was an absolute wreck, yes it was low mileage as it had been driven down to Spain, lived in for a number of years , hardly ever driven anywhere, and driven back.

    Membership of EU as opposed to Schengen Agreement.

    Slightly off topic, just a reply to 2x2 camper. We may be a little island but our economy is larger than the bottom 18 countries in the EU combined. 5th largest in the world.

    Overnight stop near Cropredy.

    Barnstones caravan park just off the A423 at Great Bourton, just a couple of miles from Cropredy. I've stayed there and it's fine and not too expensive.

    Insurance logic?

    I've just renewed my insurance and as usual tried to get a discount , non available. I then asked for a quote but to include my wife on the policy, £30 discount given on original quote. Where is the logic in that ?

    Buying A Motorhome From Europe

All done at the same premises. I think the minimum term is 2 weeks ( maybe 10 days, can't...
