Prejudice by Sex Mad Sid
As per the thread title - I'm 78 and my wife id 76, and we're becoming increasingly fed up of the prejudice displayed towards older people. For example, we start chatting to our neighbours on a site. Everything is fine as long as we talk about grandchildren, types of grounsheets, or the bloody weather When the conversation turn to sex, however, it's a different matter! - they start looking...

Caravan with towball hitch & roof mount by Tim Downie[_2_]
When we in France a couple of years ago, we spotted an odd looking caravan that appeared to be connected to the tow car by a very short connection (so that the front of the van was very close to the rear of the car) and the van extended up and over the roof ov the car where there was some sort of roof-rack mounted frame & hitch. I guess that the roof hitch was mostly to transfer "noseweight"...

Who wants to be a Billionaire?..... by Out Of Africa
....then, hurry down to your nearest foreign echange bureau without delay - where, thanks to the triumphant success of majority rule in Rhodes...., sorry, 'Zimbabwe' (lol!) less than 2.50 measly UK pounds will buy you a couple of genuine half billion 'zimbabwe' (lol!) dollar notes. Think of all the swanking to be had on your next caravan trip, telling your site neighbours of your entry...

Break-away cable with a detachable tow bar by g6zru
Where do those of you with detachable towbars attach the breakaway cable to? I don't seem to have anywhere other than the towbar on my Skoda Roomster. Fred

not much time left for you now by oldgit
Oil is generally being forecast to reach $200 a barrel within 3 years - that will mean a per litre price of about 2.50, or about 10 per gallon. I daresay that you won't be clogging up the roads then ;) It's rare to wish for higher prices - but if it means an end to the caravan menace, then bring it on!

Towing Mirrors by hugh
Latest CC Magazine had an article on legal requirements for towing mirrors. But they admitted that their own legal department found it all too hard and difficult and so they asked a mirror manufacturer!! Does anyone know of a genuinely unbiassed analysis of the current requirements regarding "E" approved towing mirrors. -- hugh Reply to address is valid at the time of posting

New Tyres(not the same one as below) by Hirem Firem
Just dropped my wheels of at a local dealer to get the tyres changed, the guys there said they looked like normal car tyres (Dunlop India 175/13R 86) no mention on them about a ply rating, it made me think. They came with the van when it was new 7 years ago. Any thoughts on this subject. By the way it is an Elldis Firestorm 400/4 Cheers

New tyres by artleknock
Having just retired and now with lots of time to do what we want, we are heading of to Scotland and Ireland for six weeks. We bought our present caravan just over a year ago, a 2001 Bailey Pageant Magenta. The tyres looked in perfect order, good tread, no cracks or wear, but I have heard and seen so many horror stories where the tyres disintegrate because of age I thought it best to be safe and...

leveller. What do you use? by Darren B
Currently we are using two big heavy chunks of wood to level our motorhome. They are heavy and take a lot of space up. Are the plastic levellers from the caravan shops any good? What do you use for levelling your van with success? TIA.

Carver 2 water heater by John East
My water heater (gas only) is playing up. It fails to light at all but the ignition is 'clicking' like mad. I have cleaned out the gas pipe which had some brown gloop in it but no change. The solenoid seems to be working and the filter in the gas line appears clean. If anyone has any ideas I will be delighted to hear them. The van is an Elddis 510 (1991) I have spoken to the very friendly...
