Re: Overland show september

I'm not planning to go, but if anyone else wants me to arrange a stand, let me know.

Cheers,

Re: Emley Moor MAST Rally

I checked a few days ago, and as far as I could find out it hasn't been cancelled :shrug:

Re: Carawagon in Buckinghamshire

That was my thought too - I suppose it might need some strengthening lengthways, but I'm not sure I like that look on the inside :embarassed: I wonder how Searle's rare 'translucent' roof was strengthened? Possibly with tubes/bars bonded in/on to the material or aluminium angle on the outside like t...

Re: Carawagon in Buckinghamshire

Interesting - I wonder how the flexible panel was constructed - looks to be corrugated on the inside!

I feel an email to the seller is in order :cheers:

Re: Caranex/Carawagon

Hi Calum, Yes, I think it's the H4 version. Just measured mine, with empty water containers and no canned food on board, at 1.84m from the gutter above the rear door to the floor. I expect it will be at least 3-5cm lower when packed for expedition - really must sort out some new/better rear springs,...

Re: "Hei" from Norway

Hi Ian,

Yes - as posted early on in this thread, HERE? though it was a few years ago :wink:

I must admit, if I were starting a roof from scratch I might copy the Calthorpe roof rather than the Carawagon as it does look elegant :cheers:

Cheers,
Robin.

Re: Carawagon in Buckinghamshire

Here's the picture Rob was trying to attach. RobW_LRO_advert.JPG I don't think I've seen it before, but the guy has had it since 2000 so unless he's been to any shows etc. we might not have seen it :shrug: Re. the problem with attaching the image, it appears that some jpg files are being incorrectly...

Re: Carawagon in Buckinghamshire

Shouldn't be a problem Rob - limit is 1000 x1000 pixels, around 800k, unless the host has changed it without telling me :shrug:

Can you email the picture to me and I'll have a look to see why it won't attach?

Cheers,
Robin.

Re: What's under the tarp?

Hi Ian, I'm afraid it's under a tarp again! I stripped it to repair the fibreglass cap and to send the cappings etc. off for galvanizing, but it took a while to build up enough to make a dip worthwhile, so, needing the space for another restoration (a 5 door Carawagon), it went ouside again sans roo...
