    Re: Towing a Roadster with an A Frame

    A proper motorhome will have a garage at the back and a reasonable level of comfort. Sliding out extensions provide a civilized amount of living room with a fully fitted kitchen and laundry room. On...

    Re: Towing a Roadster with an A Frame

    All wheels on a trailer must be braked. Remember the Starcraft 6 wheel camper which only had brakes on four? Two more wheels needed brakes. So hand brake actuation is a no go. A dolly may only be...

    Re: Towing a Roadster with an A Frame

    I have seen an A-frame made from a caravan drawbar. A cable from the foot pedal to the caravan hitch works the brakes. When reversing the brakes need to be disconnected (caravan reversing relies on...

    Re: IVA test

    Check out 'Barely started Berlinetta' on the forum. The main problem is the way the Cortina cross member is fitted to the chassis. IVA regard it as a NO NO! But I think it is the nicest Tourer. I...
  12. Re: A barely started Berlinetta kit in Scotland, V6 2.3 auto
