Another ITV(MOT) fail on a technicality yesterday. A motorhome equipped with a side awning and bike rack not on the paperwork.The new law states that all extras must be on the logbook. Including solar panels, satellite dishes and any other extras. After a bit of running around we sorted all the paperwork and it's now all legal and correct ready for more happy holidays.

Ford Ranger collected from the body shop after having some bodywork and paint done while the owners were away, then new towing mirrors ordered, painted and fitted ready to tow the 5th wheel this season. Then we collected another customer's Mercedes Sprinter and delivered it to the Mercedes main dealer to have an engine light diagnosed. After that off to the airport to deliver the Ranger to its owners who came in on this mornings flight.

Back from an epic roadtrip, 5 countries, UK, Austria, Italy, France then Spain. 2500kms.
I've met alot of interesting people and overcome a few challenging situations, It wasn't without its dramas including getting seriously lost in Austria, Italian police, impossible to access French petrol stations, 5th wheel electrical failures, truck stops full of lorries with no space left to park etc etc...

In Italy I had a long chat with a couple of what I can only assume are American caravan enthusiasts, both dressed in blue wearing shiny badges and were extremely interested in looking at the 5th wheel in great detail, they even had the full VIP interior tour in my broken Italiano.
Afterwards I learned that French motorway services aren't designed for Ford Ranger's pulling 5th wheels as the height restrictions don't apply to 5th wheels and the big truck fuel pump nozzles don't fit the Ranger's fuel tank. I ended up unhooking the 5th wheel to fill up with diesel after stopping at 4 different motorway services with only 30kms left in the tank.
