    Basically cant see anything wrong with this other than missing one wheel / tyre :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: n they do say small is beautiful?? Bl..dy fuel must be good
    But what springs to my mind is that the balance could be a bit off... especially when one of us need the "little room" in the nite :winky::winky::winky: wupsey daisy (sp)::bigsmile:::bigsmile:

    Actualy Kath, if you check with OH you might find that Reliant fitted heavy duty springs to stop the 'rolling' effect * mind you I think they were more concerned with going round corners, and not what you were thinking off :winky: :ROFLMAO:

    * I never owned one but many years ago I did have a Reliant Scimitar so used to meet up with Robin owners at club events.

    Thank you Harvey I didnt know that but had wondered about it in the past as there used to be a local one, it is the cycle on the rear door that did make me smile really as it looks bigger than the Robin, and agree also that it is very well planned and would suit many a folk it even has a huge sink and TV :thumb::thumb:

    The guy who did this conversion has made an excellent job. It's been well thought out and makes a unique camper.
    Definately one of the better 'diy' conversions i've seen, and at 60mpg........the new owner of this little gem can laugh at fuel costs, not to mention mega cheap insurance!

    Cooker, sink, 240v electrics, even a flat screen tv!! :Smile:
