    Just been reading an article on vehicle recalls.One manufacturer states that there could be a problem with a slide out activating while travelling.Quote "This can cause the overall vehicle width to increase" Would never have guessed that.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Sounds an interesting scenario Martyn.

    Would certainly scare the s..t out of anyone overtaking at the time, or some unsuspecting pedestrian.:Eeek:

    Did they name the Manufacturer of the vehicle it relates to?
