It is ok Logi .. I let you off on account of your age .. I am pleased to see that you have mastered the use of a computer and an obviously up to date mobile phone in your latter years .. Laughing

Ah, the Honda Acty, I inherited an early one (with the separate box) from my dad. Split tailgate was a great idea, and with only the cab to heat it was toasty in winter. Great little van, and it's death got me into Hijets.

I wanted the pick-up to start with and the romahome but when I looked into insurance it looked like a nightmare. Did you have any problems with that?

I originally bought the acty with the romahome as I wanted a small camper. (It was a 1985 545cc model) and I had to make the decision this year that after replacing a lot of parts and having the engine rebuilt last year that the welding it now needed was going to cost more then I was willing to spend anymore. So then I had the task of looking for a truck to fit the romahome .. (choice of 3) .. I preferred the daihatsu and the price was right so that's what I found ..

None at all.. There are a few companies that even know what your talking about when you tell them you can remove the camping pod .. I will be up your way at Easter with a few other romahome campers.. you could always come and say hello

Years ago I had 2 Honda Acty's at the same time, funny enough both had the same number plate??. My neighbour was a traffic cop and he never said a word.
