We were returning from Scotland yesterday down the M6 - we were in the inside lane doing just under 65mph.

We were overtaken by a Roller mobile home with a rental firms logo and web address on the back of it with a mature couple in it.....it must of being going at least 80 mph as it left us standing.....

Talk about thrashing it.... It just kept going and going... Was on new 15 plate...

Remind me never to buy an ex rental van...

jees, would never go that slow in mine :sneaky:
Me and @drago35uk and @Silkcut1105 were having a race along the M4 the other week and mine topped 102 and Silkcuts nearly 110...
Must admit though, they do get a bit of a rattle on that speed but I think it's the cooker grill

Was that K.P.H.... :giggler:

no Mo, I thought the best way was to leave the waste water open creating a problem for Silkcut as he couldn't see. I emptied the clean water too and made Tara and Nikki get a taxi to keep the weight down.

The video is on the next series of top gear

We were up in Scotland last week and there's a few of those rentals on 15 plates being used by a charity cycle ride group. Nice vans and certainly capable easily of that speed

I think most of them MIGHT JUST REALISE who are the BS mechants on here.
However on You tube there is a film of 100mph + motorhome on the Autobahn and the wife is making tea in the back walking around as well. I thought it was KPH but no it was mph.

That's bang out of order.... i thought the lawyers granted me an injunction from that being used. Oh no so sorry, they granted an injunction from me filming the one on the autbhan where Nikki was having a shower and the Bessacar hit 105 MPH...
