Croatia by PM[_3_]
Has anyone out there spent any time in recent years in Croatia? We're looking at Slovenia for a trip May/June and have wondered about going on further to the Istrian Penninsula, or further south. The one black mark we can see at the moment seems to be mosquitoes since we are both susceptible these days - the effects seem to get worse as we "mature". grateful for any ideas/information on the...

Corsica and Sardinia by RustY©
Has anyone 'done' these islands recently with a van ? In April, I plan to ferry from France / Italy to North Corse, drive down to the bottom of the island then ferry across to Sardinia for a full lap of that island them back onto Corse and up the other side to get back to the ferry port. Sorting out ferries is not as straight forward as I'd hoped though. I was thinking of a two week return from...

End of BBC Short Wave Transmissions to Europe. by Dave D
I was about five minutes away from ordering a replacement Sony SW radio on Amazon for my old cracked Sony 7600 when I came across a page on the BBC website which tells us that - "The remaining BBC World Service shortwave transmissions to Europe will close on 18th February 2008." and "the majority of shortwave transmissions ceased in March 2007" I was having problems all last year in France and...

MY COACHBUILT CI motorhome 1975 Ford Transit by DJLASER1962
I wondered if anyone knows any enthusiast is interested in Pimping my caravan and we can sell it afterwards and split the profits. At the moment I love it, but it is the only vehicle we have and being an automatic it is so expensive to drive anyway. Help anyone at all. I am based in Croydon London UK

travels with our Labrador by Susie Thompson
We have a three year old yellow Labrador dog called Sam who is very fit and weighs around 6 stone. We also have a Marquis Lancashire motorhome, which is the Marquis conversion of the 2003 Autosleeper Nuevo. When he's in our car, Sam sits in the boot, the other side of the fixed dog guard - he loves looking out of the windows and watches everything that's going on. He doesn't often curl up...

LHD camper woes and 40MPG! wow. by Terry[_5_]
3000kg class IV (PLG) import based on Ford 2.5DI driven sensibly (top speed 60ish) has just returned 40+MPG.......!! I was hoping optimistically to get about 30mpg, but 40 is a real plus :)) The downside is pulling away from roundabouts and junctions that have markers that are not square, designed so you sort of swerve in with the flow when pulling away. This means in a LHD the right side...

Motorhome alarm? by Colin[_2_]
I have an old 1994 Diesel camper (Ford Transit Coach built) which is pre factory security systems so I need to fit one, and if I am fitting one it might as well be an alarm rather than immobiliser only! I'd like it Thatcham approved but in that case I think the alarm (Cat1) needs to be fitted by an installer (with certificate) although I think the immobiliser (Cat2) is OK as a DIY. I used to fit...

Adding seatbelts by Nebulous[_2_]
Hi folks I've been looking at a Hymer motorhome from the early nineties- main problem is it only has seatbelts in the front two seats and as there are 4 of us we need in the rear as well. How feasible is this? Are there fixing points? What are the regulations for carrying people/children in the back? Seats must be forward facing is that right?
