Granny (or Children) Annex?

Found this when looking at motorhomes.

http://motorhomesltd.com/product/tiny-camping-pod/

Not advertising - I have no involvement with the company other than having bought a motorhome there.

Re: Finally dead and got to go.

I think my next adventure may be an electric car if i can afford one. I corresponded with Clive Sinclair with some ideas about them both before and after he announced the irrelevant C5 so have watched their progress for many years with interest. But right now, what a Bongo does is something I can r...

Re: Finally dead and got to go.

:D love it, it. It could only that way when it's run by the council. Fill your boots mate. Not really as I said in the other reply 3 local supermarkets offer free charging and Morrisons are supposed to be installing chargers nationwide. Rushden Lakes shopping centre has 16 chargers and 4 of them ar...

Re: Finally dead and got to go.

It died about a year ago and it's taken until now to decide euthanasia is the only kind ending.

I now have a Transit, a Pick-up and the trailer I brought back from France inside the Bongo for the log and load lugging and the full-size motorhome for the camping, so the Bongo is now "sans raison".

Finally dead and got to go.

Bongo has finally fatally failed. Just too much is needed, head/head gasket gone, climate control has packed up, wheel arches look like lace (as does the underneath) and now the side door won't open. However it has 16" alloys with goodish winter tyres, newish radiator, an unused set of silicon hoses...

On some the only thing that's original is the chassis number.

(No such thing as a VIN in those days) :lol:

Yeah but most of them have more weld than metal in them.

They only ask about "use" not ownership or even "keepership" and I have use of the vehicles I don't insure all of them.

Re: insure and main vechile

Everywhere else I've ever used inc. Lifesure just asked about any other vehicles I use (a total of 6) but not which is the "main" one - a good job as well because there isn't a main one. Anyway how to define "main" - the one I use the most often, but do not do the most miles in, or the one I do the ...

Re: insure and main vechile

That may be why you're happy with them. I had breakdown insurance with them once and just couldn't didn't like the service. That statement is probably a bit unfair but cheapest quotes aren't always the best value. I suppose it all depends which company they have insured you with. Which company is th...

They also know I have 3 vehicles insured with them any of which could be a "first" vehicle but they have never asked which one it might be.

Re: insure and main vechile

Lifesure do not even ask if it is a first, second or even a thousandth vehicle.

I wouldn't use 2 gether, I'd rather risk driving without insurance.
