    Hi everyone

    Well our Roller team has now been sold and is living in France.

    I wondered if the attached counts as a motorhome

    well, I agree Cheyne, it doesn't matter what you have, but it still isnt a motorhome per se ! :winky:

    We're toying with the idea of a trip to Cape Town next year!!

    I sold some landy wheels on EBay a couple of months ago to a South African guy who is planning the trip. There will be mechanics, relief vehicle and up to 8 vehicles. I would then sell my landy there as it is a commercial vehicle and they don't do them in S. Africa so would get top dollar for it.

    Totally agree.

    He told me 1st time he was going to sleep under his Land Rover with the dog. I felt awful getting into my nice warn van, during the day he was going to put a tent up but got late so would not going bother:Blush:

    In the morning I was looking under the LR feeling awful to get a load morning from above.

    There he was warm and rested:Doh::RollEyes:

    Its definitely his motor and his home when away:winky:

    I would say it was 100% motorhome. Who cares if the walls are canvas, nylon or GRP::bigsmile:
