Re: Wide caravans

I don't think the tow vehicle has to be wider, that's what towing mirrors are for, but the towed rig is only supposed to be a recommended maximum of 85% of the tow vehicle's weight. Only trouble is caravans seem to be getting steadily heavier as manufacturers make them bigger/pack more gear in them.

Re: P17 ROY the elbow clipper - my sweet revenge

I think the 'touch the car' can be done in a way that puts the onus on the motorist being too close to you. Don't bang the car, just fend it off with your hand flat against the panel.
