It occurs to me that an enterprising Trader could market a Continental touring pack.
Halfords do one.
Do tell what you would like in it, we have no access to Fray Bentos pies but we do have wayfarer meals
Serious, what is required?
I think the OP was saying a pack with all the legal requirements for countries ie:spare bulbs reflective jackets triangles you get the idea Peter?
Peter, how about a list that includes all that is needed for traveling into France including the Aires guide, everything can be priced individually, ticked off by customer,what they have not got, packaged in a nice John Cross zip bag, ordered on the Internet, and delivered by return post.
As I see it from recent posts,apart from the purely motoring items,things like EHU sets with most common adaptors,polarity checker,polarity adaptor.
A set of water connectors. LPG adaptors-that's just off top of head
Come on Peter do we have to do it all for you ?
I assume this thread has spawned from this one:
Of course, you know from experience what is generally required. !
Been there and done it!:thumb:
Stopped it as well
Basic problems were that to cover all of Europe, you had to carry some equipment that you didn't need to in the countries that you were actually going to.
Then think about the bulb requirements for each chassis and the age related issues with bulb change.
Then the issues with people wanting the "kit" but that "Didn't need the triangles as we have already got one"
Then there were the issues with people having it in the van for their two week holiday and then sending it back for a refund as it "wasn't right" or "Had the wrong bulbs" Then trying to buy the same thing a year later for their next holiday
So we gave up on that scheme!
Good idea though, just impractical to arrange given the low volume of sales that you actually achieve, and the different requirements for each Country and the chassis variations!
I was thinking more about the 'Homing' side of things rather than the 'Motoring' side.
Halfrauds already service that side of it all-sort of
Having a list is a good idea then you just order the things you do not have
the breathalyzer for France....
