My New Race Motorhome

Looking very good. A huge amount of pleasure can be enjoyed with a project such as this.

Just be mindful of the amount of construction you make as it would not be difficult to overload the front axle on a 7.5tonne vehicle. I have seen many Horseboxes (non-Luton type body) with built in living quarters that have exceeded the permitted axle weights before the horse is even loaded.

I love this, shame I've got nowhere to park a 7.5 tonner.

Just sell your house and rent a space on a caravan park, live in the van?

Holy thread Resurrection!  What made you dig this one up @Archibald Meatpants it's over 7 years since the last post before today!

 

I'd be interested to see if it's still in use!

I last saw Phil and his motorhome at Knockhill in 2017. I think I saw his car up for sale not long after that.

 

Car and transporter in the background here.

Having a class  2 license this makes so much more sense than an expensive motor home and trailer.

 

If only Mrs W would come round to the idea
