    Tell them to buy some good tie-downs.
    My mate had one years ago and it blew over in the wind.
    It was on a site at the time. :Eeek:

    On the subject of small Bambi/Nipper motorhomes.
    I was passing the local Elddis factory last week and noticed a chassis/pickup truck parked out of the way. Not the sort of vehicle you see without number plates on a motorhome manufacturers holding area. As the need for small value vans increases I was wondering if they are designing a pop on body based on the small vans from years ago. If this is the case they would probably be making it ready for the 2013 season and hopefully showcasing early in the year, possibly Birmingham.
    Time will tell but it could be a good move in the current sales climate.

    Hijets on Daihatsu was actually made by Johns Cross initially about 15 years ago.
