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.
