    Paying Spanish Speeding Fines

    Thought I would put this here, in case it was of use to anyone else. Today I received a speeding fine in the post from the Spanish DGT. It was incurred on our recent trip to Spain/Portugal. Apparently I was doing 113kmh in a 90kmh zone. I can't argue with them as I have no idea specifically...

    44 And Schooled.

    So yesterday I had the pleasure of doing a 'drivers awareness' course in Uttoxeter after a slight mishap and nudging over the speed limit in Stoke on trent a while ago. Now, i've been on the UK's roads for 27 years, and do my share of miles up and down this country every day, but I learnt some...

    Expensive, But Best Sound Deadening, Just Attracts The Authorities.

    Just read this in the local free Metro paper, lazy reporter can't even differentiate between a transit and a T6. But I bet 410lbs of cocaine deadened the road rumble noise. I always knew those team starlight blue boys were wrong-uns. :thumbsup::whistle:

    Sleeping On The Move

    At a recent show I saw a bloke advertising his new overnight sleeper mini coach. Merc sprinter with 12 beds. Got me wondering whether people can sleep in camper conversions and motorhomes (rock n roll bed). Can't find anything definitive online. Lots of opinions and anecdotes.

    Wild Camp Locations?

    Just a thought- our conversions are usually self sufficient. I'm sure we have all used or know of Wild Camp locations. Perhaps we can list/host the locations region by region? Admin could make it a VIP member area if not suitable for general release so as to stop bots finding and disseminating...

    Licence Category For Campervan

    This is potentially a daft question but what driving licence category do you need for a vw campervan? I can drive up to 7.5 tonnes on my licence but my wife only has a few categories and now wondering if she is even allowed to drive it

    Led Headlights - European Travel

    Hi all, I've got factory fitted LED lights all round on my T6 and I'm travelling from the UK to Belgium and then on into France. A question - EU law says drivers need to carry spare headlight bulbs, but how can I comply with this when I've got LED units? (which are presumably sealed units)...

    Downplating - Anyone Done It?

    Would ideally like to downplate my T30 to a T26 or lower. This is for towing reasons. I only need to tow a 925kg gross weight trailer. My license restricts me to 3500kgs total gross. Any experience anyone?

    I'm trying to work out what vehicle class a new VW T6 Kombi would fall into ... This has been discussed previously here I see (Kombi speed limit ?), but information I have found elsewhere seems as though it might contradict this. According to these links, and if I am correct, a VW Kombi could...

    Speed Limits (again)

    Got a NIP in the post yesterday for the van, 57mph when the limit was apparently 50mph. This was for a trip we did in Wales last weekend, and I do remember going past the mobile camera, thinking "that's OK, it's a 60mph limit, and I am doing just under 60mph". I queried it with their call...
