Found these lovely signs provided by 'friends of motorhome-travels' so thought it would be nice to share them. Do you have any amusing sign pictures you may have taken on your RV / Motorhome travels that you could share with our readers? Dig them out, please.


Also how about these "Campers" Comments


They are actual comments left on U. S. Forest Service registration sheets and comment cards by backpackers completing wilderness camping trips:

•“A small deer came into my camp and stole my bag of pickles. Is there a way I can get reimbursed? Please call.”

•“Escalators would help on steep uphill sections.”

•“Instead of a permit system or regulations, the Forest Service needs to reduce worldwide population growth to limit the number of visitors to wilderness.”

•“Trails need to be wider so people can walk while holding hands.”

•“Ban walking sticks in wilderness. Hikers that use walking sticks are more likely to chase animals.”

•“All the mile markers are missing this year.”

•“Found a smoldering cigarette left by a horse.”

•“Trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building trails that go uphill.”

•“Too many bugs and leeches and spiders and spider webs. Please spray the wilderness to rid the area of these pests.”

•“Please pave the trails so they can be plowed of snow in the winter.”

•“Chair lifts need to be in some places so that we can get to wonderful views without having to hike to them.”

•“The coyotes made too much noise last night and kept me awake. Please eradicate these annoying animals.”

•“Reflectors need to be placed on trees every 50 feet so people can hike at night with flashlights.”

•“Need more signs to keep area pristine.”

•“A McDonald’s would be nice at the trail head.”

•“The places where trails do not exist are not well marked.”

•“Too many rocks in the mountains.”


Haha....


Have your say ....PLEASE *smile*

Here are some examples of early motorhomes we like. Its interesting how man & womans' desire to get away from having to be under canvas has developed.


Love the progression from bikes to old van conversions, plus the upgrades to some of the more expensive variety of vehicle.


Do you have any old examples you would like to share. Then post your comments and links below, let us all have a look. Maybe here at Motorhome-travels we will choose the best / most amusing and give it an award.

Came across this wonderful little gadget . It shows the level of gas in a cylinder. Safe, reusable and accurate. Attaches to bottle using magnetic strip.


We have one and its been so much better than memory or turning on the cooker ring and finding it has 'stopped'.


Here is a place we got one from but there will be others on eBay.

2016 Update: Many of the modern light weight bottles now have a red / green indicator on the top, may be worth using as well assuming you can get to see it

Worried about your payload? Want to squeeze in a little something extra, maybe another book to read on those long lot summer days, a slightly better (but heavier) BBQ, a few more bottles of wine or beer....?


Well if you don't already know about these it may well be worth taking a look and either buying one or trying at the next bottle exchange to swap, could save you a bit of travelling weight.

Just tried this out and was panicky that it may not come off again after fitting. Luckily it did so thought I’d share my experiences, sorry if its already blindingly obvious to many of you but whilst we are ‘experts’ in hiring vans this is the 1st we have ever owned so its precious to us.


Slide the Milenco front cover with top strap over the wheel in a horizontal position, avoiding the wheel arch of the vehicle.


1.Rotate so that the top strap is over the centre of the wheel.

2.Insert the right leg through the right side of the front cover, ensuring the rear leg goes behind the tyre.

3.Insert the key and release the lock by rotating the key 90 degrees clockwise.

4.Insert left leg through the left side of the front cover. (Note: Lower edge of left hand locking plate must insert over right hand locking plate.)

5.Lock wheelclamp by rotating the key 90 degrees anti-clockwise, and then remove your key.


To remove your Milenco wheelclamp insert key and turn 90 degrees clockwise, pull out left leg. Turn key 90 degrees anti-clockwise, remove key, pull out right leg.


IMPORTANT: (From inner label) To remove your milenco wheelclamp rotate key then push legs together

to release locking pins.
