Hi guys, really gutted, the DVLA have not released my license. Got to jump thru a few more hoops. Hope you have a great weekend.

Better get it back before June cos I've booked the ferry.

Thanks for you company guys (& girls). Hope you made it back safely or are having an enjoyable trip home? See you at Landy Live where it's hopefully a little warmer!
Now, time to iron those little annoying faults out...

Dave & Sophie.

Ditto, only I can't for the life of me see how you Dave could find any "little annoying faults". Your 90 really was well sorted, very nice indeed.  thumbsup 

Just to let you know - 'No Neck' (Lee) is now recuperating BTW, although reckon doner kebabs and fried brekkies are now off the menu. For him that's a truly a life sentence!

Lol, Little annoying faults in that the new cooker takes over 5 minutes to boil a cup of water - 5 minutes came & went & we got tired of waiting.
Also fully loaded up the Landy is a few CM's lower on the back than the front - a couple of spring spacers should sort this without going the other way when unloaded.

Oh, and create more storage.

Dave.

More storage for helium balloons  clapping 

The Engel fridge needs to be higher so I can store probably a couple of wolf boxes under it. (basically to always allow the fridge to be opened without loosing a lot of space or covering the fridge over).

Looked at some pre made shelving but the price they wanted was far too high, so I can make the same if not better suited to my needs for around £40 + a few hours labour.

So, a little competition, who is going to use the most ££'s in Diesel (or unleaded/LPG) to get to Bad Kissingen from the U.K?

I think I can do it for £210 diesel each way... Almost 700 miles each way.

Dave, check out the PANELS section here - www.omnia-cs.co.uk They attended a motorhome show a couple of years ago promoting their lightweight (nay ... featherweight) panels only 15mm thick yet super strong. They also had flooring, I think approx. 25mm or 30mm thick, again very strong.

When finally getting around to furnishing the RR ambulance-come-camper, I am seriously considering using these panels for the cupboards, etc. Could also build the entire bed and seating from this material, would save an incredible amount of weight.

As for Bad Kiss, that will be interesting. We'll see.

Hi, still gutted I missed the weekend.

Dave, try the air helpers, they worked great on the 130 demountable.  You can adjust manually when running light and they prevent roll if your load centre is high.  http://www.air-lift.co.uk/product.php?unique_id=1415

As for BK (license permitting) I'll be lucky to get change out of £650,

Tuggy, just noticed your up for the big 60 soon  cheers1

Was going to take Aleasha to alton towers, but cost was £140 pounds, even though Dilys would not be going on any rides and me only 2-3, what a rip off, so went to Blackpool to see daughter and go on central pier, had a good day their instead.  clinking teacups
