One to watch out for,friends from our campsite here at El Portus,were travelling back to the UK couple of days ago and were robbed at gunpoint by some guys on motorbikes,who pulled alongside them and indicated they had a problem with their trailer.the happened somewhere near San Sebastion

How dreadful for them.

I hope they didn't lose too much and I hope they don't lose the desire to motorhome.

Did they pull over before the guns appeared or did they pull over because guns were being pointed?

Just what I want to hear when I will soon be driving down to Benidorm with the Grandkids in our car.. !!

Luckily I read things like this on these forums and hopefully it will make me aware enough should something like this happen... I know it's not just motorhomes it happens to.
Foreign plated cars are easy to target, seen many of the videos on youtube etc....

fake cops had a go at pulling me over a few miles back from the border at irun near san sebastien about 4 years ago. red toyota with 2 blokes and a woman , had blue flashing light inside and a amateurish looking pop up "stop" sign in the rear window. i didnt stop and they sped off at the final exit before the border. it was dark and they had a go at slowing down in front of me but i was having none of it so on went the full beams and about 6 inches between our bumpers and i think they got the message .
