Hi from the UK

Hi from England, I have a Gulfstream 32 ft Cavalier with a 7.4 ltr BBC, it is used mostly for towing my race car around . I am a mechanic by trade and run my own japanese performance garage. I am sure I will pick up many useful tips on this site as I try to improve my RV.

Thanks Guys, I come from the South of England, right on the sea, a place called Brighton and yes we do drive on the wrong side of the road but you soon get used to having the steering wheel on the left!!!!!. We don't see too many American RV's on the road (but a lot at the race meetings) and she gets a lot of attention at gas stations etc, especially with the trailer and race car attached to the back.

A lot of our roads are really too narrow for the big RV's, I think anything over 32/34ft would be a nitemare to drive on our roads due to the overhang, also 32 ft can get on most RV sites, anything much bigger than my Gulfstream will also need a truck driving license to be legal, also our sites do not seem to have anywhere to dump the waste water, they are all geared up for cassete type dumping in a sluice.

I have a lot to do to the RV ready for next year, I need to fit another 3 house batteries to give 5 in total and fit 110 watt solar panel to the roof, our main venue Santa Pod has no electric hook up. I am also toying with the idea of pulling the motor out and fitting a SCAT 8.2 ltr stroker kit with high compression pistons and an RV cam so the RV pulls up hills better when towing, I also need to look at the gearbox as it loses O/D as soon as it kicks down when hot and you then need to turn the engine off and back on to get all 4 gears!!!! The RV runs on Petrol and LPG which seeing as we have to pay around $8-9 a gallon is a big help (its half that).

I will try and get some pics up and a link to a site that we use for stop overs.
