Sorry about the thread title, couldn't resist it!
Anyway, I captured this little incident on dashcam yesterday. These types of driver really annoy me, a motorhome takes a lot of stopping. He nearly had 4 tonnes of camper in his boot.

Almost afraid to ask but what camera was used ?
The footage I get from mine is perfectly smooth but that was pretty jerky !

The original footage is completely smooth, for some reason when I cropped the video in movie make, it went all jerky. To answer the question, it's a Nextbase 302, sadly the GPS part of it hadn't registered, we had only just set off, so speed is not shown in the clip.

Mine would be a bit 'jerky' John, if that happened to me!! If it had been my old Hymer, then it would now be wearing that truck as a bonnet mascot.....

Living the dream.
Just watched it What a pillock. Nice horn by the way:)

Very true and I also noticed that the pillock ended up on the wrong side of the road as he screamed into the junction, bunch of dead cyclists, mum and four kids dead? You never know do you.

No 4x4' drivers think they're driving a bleeding tank which in some cases they are But it means they take more chances than your average motorist except that is white van man who's a lunatic at the best of times

On and off for many years.
Why pick on 4x4's Some of us need a go anywhere tow vehicle. It could just as easily have been a car or whitevan man and generally is.

And it's not just motorhomes they cut up. Had the same thing happen on the way home yesterday. We overtook a young man on the motorway, he obviously thought we had insulted his manhood and came screaming past us only to cut in and off at the next junction - closely perused by a police car :)

I was being deliberately argumentative :D
It was easy because it was a 4x4 that did it.

I do get sick of the anti 4x4 brigade its a vehicle suited to anyplace not just the countryside, it gives a super high vantage point which has to be better and generally a chassis which makes it safer, yet generally driven with care and people expect us to park anywhere. I tow boats and cattle trailers, horse boxes as well as general trailers so would not be without mine in town or country. I really fail to see the objections make any sense.
I used to think it was jealosy now I'm not so sure.

I agree with you, but it's the stupid drivers of said vehicles (they seem to attract more than their fair share of pillocks)

And lest we not forget, a large number of us on here have been towed out of mud when we get our motorhomes stuck (myself included).
I should point out that that I not actually anti 4x4, I am anti-muppet. :D
