I have recently done this, contact me on bblackmore12@... and I will explain.
The mot can ignore it but in an accident the police will not, and then the insurance company asks questions
Kind regards

Subject: [MH-list] Help/advice to register Swiss van in Uk

 

My neighbour returned to Manchester in August after working in Switzerland for six years. He brought back with him a Swiss register left hand drive VW mini bus which is professionally build, rising roof, awning etc. Now he want to register it in the Uk and his big problem is how to fit a MPH speedometer. VW in Manchester do not know how to do it or where to get the parts and a private garage in south Manchester said they would try to fit it if he can get the parts. Someone has advised him to look on eBay and buy a USA MPH speedometer. Both garages have warned him he might loose his warranty if he removes the original parts. I have a 2003 LHD motorhome with a kilometre Speedometer which is MOT each year with no problem so why does the paperwork require him to fit a mile speedometer ? I know a lot of member import motorhomes from Germany how do you do it? My garage says it not part of the MOT so they don't have to check it. Happy Christmas and New Year to everyone . William

I had a spare cassette on my previous van that does not match our current. Rather than sell it I keep it in the garage and if we ever need some extra capacity I just empty my normal cassette into the old one. Only ever needed to do it once.
When spare cassettes are pushing £100 I would hang on to it.

2 a spare cassette for the 200 C thetford toilet together with the carrying box that can be fitted under the vehicle, although we only ever carried it in the garage it’s s Fiamma I think we purchased in Germany. Cassette has been used occasionally   See details and pics on this link:

3 An electrical reel with sockets in side. We already have a 25m and 15m leads so rarely used and not been carried for over 5 years - sits in garage on a shelf

4 I have a Fitbit Charge HR - new bought for Duncan but he refused to use it, so it has sat in my desk ever since. It’s LARGE and BLACK colour strap

If anyone is interested perhaps you would contact me direct

I would put the Sureflo details on but it’s pouring at the moment so if interested I can put info up tomorrow

I agree Carol as I also read your original post. My last bit - (Only
joking.) - is the important bit.

The problem is an old problem with e-mail programs. When IBM
introduced it's low specification (at that time) IBM PC, many folk
demanded 'IBM PC compatible computers'. Or PC clones or IBM clones as
they were frequently known.

But mainly Apple would not conform to this new standard, using a
different character set.

On other lists, I see even more very very long quotes that get
corrupted this way.

It's not a poster's fault. It's not a forwarder's fault. It's the
fault of programmers of e-mail programs.

Hi Carol
I bought  two of these
(now out of stock)
https://www.e-bikesdirect.co.uk/electric-bikes/bikes-under-%C2%A3700/byocycle-chameleon-20

Folding, with non glamorous battery which is easily removable. That
fact, and the folding nature makes good secure locking up in strange
towns for the day, more of a problem. We use the rear outside bike
rack on van unfolded, same as ordinary bikes. One folding bike at the
rearmost, has its handlebars folded down for ease of waterproof covering.

Ordering from this place went well, fast, bikes worked ok. The bike
look as if they are direct from china (?) but god user notes and in
english. Got useful answers from the retail online support.

In EU we must have 'pedello' control as regulations - motor only runs
when pedals turning (dont need to push just rotate pedals. speed
limited also. So main road use feels like a bike (not a motorbike).
Hills disappear....   Until the battery runs out... Then they
reappear with vengeance. with battery removed is lighter than our push
bikes. gears for push or motor = four, quite well designed. Mains
charging only 36v adapter rather similar to laptop. Takes 5 hrs to
full charge.

Interestingly although on main roads it feels restricted, like a push
bike, some maneuvers are faster - I drove car along into a local town
recently, and an older woman on a bike was waiting to in the middle of
the road to turn across the traffic (in front of me). As a push bike
and her age said she would wait for a clear space (not in front of me)
- BUT - it was an ebike and she took me by surprise by coming across!.
Safe  for her but a surprise for me - even though quickly recognised
the ebike situation.

We wear dayglo to help emphasise that we are  asking for being noticed
(as different....)

The turning on and of of motor does take getting used to. No good
jumping forward in front of crossing traffic.... scary at first really
does need careful skill practice if a full retirement is planned....

battery is heavy. My hope, dream, is that our oriental friends will
invent a better battery to retrofit.... Dreaming here.

warm regards from long lost alan

We've used CampingCar Parks a fair bit - but once made the mistake of using them for just day-parking (in Millau) and are now stuck with an odd 5 euros on the top-up card they use - we'll probably never use this because the minimum top-up is more than the day fee and it's rare not to get free parking.

They are definitely good when you need a hook-up for the night, and the WiFi is good as well.

We found their Phone app pretty useless for finding them unless you are already next to one and there are a lot more down in the south than there are in the north.

---

We're actually off to Ghent for the CHristmas market this evening :)

Planning to park up in the aire in Bergues (a few miles inland from Dunquerque) after a late night Ferry - If you're ever there, we like a restaurant called "Le Breuguel" on the other side of town from the aire next to the canal - you can get a table or sit on the long benches, good french cooking and not too expensive.

Cheers
