    Camper Vans again!

    I have been constantly surprised at just what the breadth of knowledge is on this forum, so here goes... Come across what looks like a very good buy, but finding specs has proved to be difficult. It is an Elnagh Marlin 57. Anybody know anything about these? Or better at searching the web than...

    A new business opportunity aka an opportunity to squander more money has turned up and we need a van. Sort of Transit sized, cheap £2-3k, comfortable, economical and reliable and not riddled with rust. I know nothing about vans and I won't be driving it.

    3.5 tonne vans to be limited?

    How far can safety camera vans see

    Okay I'll admit it. I got a little bit carried away on the M9 near dunblane and in the very far distance >1mile I saw a safety camera van parked up in the bridge (on the pavement). I assume that if I could see it, its radar (or whatever) would see me. I slowed down pretty quickly but would it...
