My Omega once lost the battle between its front bumper and one of Mikes well placed boulders 😬
I've been fine since reversing from alongside the toilet block as opposed to the entrance and the s approach.
The new sbs with its wider wheelbase than my old Snipe is in danger of turning me into a real novice ! Not much to spare 😘
Still plenty worse than me thankfully ,,,, good spectator sport as you know from your trips I think lol

Good job you didnt witness my pants reversing down the slip, hence front hitch, however, this means you dont get any reversing practice....

New tow vehicle

Evoque has had to go back to lease heaven after 3 years faultless running , 90,000 miles and one set of tyres! and now having a rest from the redbay.

I have a new torture vehicle now though, hoping to be another great tow machine, been inpressed so far.
