    Oh dear, looks like the MH ran into one of the other vehicles in front and then the car behind ran into it ...

    Isn’t that all our ultimate nightmare?

    We stop, the vehicle behind doesn’t.

    At least three months off the road awaiting parts from the manufacturer.

    Could be worse. If the car had reversed into the front of a Hymer, 2x headlights £3000 + bodywork repair!:whistle:

    That has raised the van nicely. He'll no longer need to go to the trouble of fitting semi-air to the rear.:rolleyes:

    See what happens when your towing with a dodgy A frame ??

    I'd have thought the MH is a write off after that.

    Does it look like it is in a lay by?

    Really can't work that out, if the MH reversed onto the car he was trying hard :LOL:

    It says its on the A35 near the junction for Shipton Gorge so appears to be left hand turn filter lane onto Shipton Road.

    Looks that way to me too.
    There's a pile of debris under the rear of the blue car which could have come from the very rear car as doesn't look much damage to the blue car.
    It wouldn't take much to do that damage to the van considering it's all foam, fibreglass and plywood.

    Quite shock absorbing really, crush zone built in, it is being in the loo in the rear when another vehicle runs into that might make your eyes water, if it is the layby then ther would probably be a few in front, the van front isn't bad to be a fast moving hit. Blue car on the phone maybe??????????? The jam in a sandwich is very likely as well.
