Re: A day full of surprises

Turns out it was the upper roller - it shouldn't be in two halves, replacement on order and door hung again! At least this time it fell apart at home and enabled me to work out which bit had failed.

Re: 2 bike rack for swan neck westy towbar recomendations

We have a Thule tow ball mounted rack that has (and is) serving us well. I have also found Thule's customer service to be excellent when I lost bit's off some roof bars, so probably not the cheapest but built to last. Had a quick look at their site and they do a two bike carrier ( ours was a three)

Mechanic in South Devon

Hi - I fear we may have cooked our engine, so I would be interested in recommendations for a mechanic in South Devon/Plymouth area who can cast an eye over it and give me an opinion on the way forward
