Angry Lockdown UK style

Here in the UK we have been on lockdown for a week, I’m already missing the freedom the RV gives us. I’ve owned an American RV for 18 years and loved every minute of it, we get crowds of people wanting to look inside the RV wherever we go. Finding campsites with suitable access and pitches long enough can be challenging, however perfect planning makes a perfect trip.
Try and keep your chin up, we are

Mike,
It sounds like you may be more restricted than us....but it may be coming here.
I have seen pictures of European Caravans, and understand how you may find it difficult locating large enough campsites. What type and size RV do you have. I'm guessing spare parts could be a real problem in the UK.

Stay Hunkered Down, and Safe. Hopefully this will all be over soon and we can get back on the road.

Mike, did you have to do a lot to convert your electrical? Did your water or sewer connections need adapters?

Hi Gary
We have a Damon Intruder, 33 foot gas puller, Chevy big block, 360 bhp, converted to run on Propane, what a fantastic engine.
Parts are not a problem, we have local stockists who carry almost everything we need, very occasionally we special order from the stats, providing you guys have the part in stock it takes 4 / 5 days to arrive, however shipping costs can be more than the part.
We are told lockdown could last until June, the government are all over this and let us know what’s happening on a daily basis.
Keep safe
Best Mike

Hi Scott, we convert using a step down transformer for the microwave and fridge and everything else 120 volts has to be changed to 240 volts, tvís, wall sockets, battery charger, inverter, washing machine etc, all 12 volt equipment remains the same.
We use standard US flex sewer pipes with uk fresh water hose, it all works perfectly.
Keep safe
Best Mike
