This Slow Truck Is Quickly Turning To A Fast House #5

Man what a full on two days that was…

This is going to be an update of very few words as I am just so sleepy after a full on couple of days.. In a nutshell I got the windows and doors into the habitation box and fitted the new exhaust by routing it under the truck rather than up out of the top where it was before.

Now the habitation box can be lifted onto the back once the last bits of trim are fitted to the edges.

Let the the video do the talking while I catch up on some sleep.

    Regarding the Shuttle. While it lacks the romance of the ferry, and you don’t even see the sea, it is certainly a lot more convenient and flexible – especially if you cross the channel quite often. First, you access it from the M20 without the need to drive into Dover. Rolling on and off is much quicker. With all border checks before you board, once you arrive, you are on the motorway (either side) within 10 mins. I live in Belgium and regularly visit the UK. I buy the ‘Frequent Traveller’ option which is £440 for 5 return trips within 12 months (you pay £20 extra for any ‘peak time’ trip). The crossing is just 30 mins, and like Jed says, no need or option to spend money during the crossing, although you can stop at the service area before the crossing, which is much likely a standard motorway service area, with shops and food options. You can get out of the vehicle to stretch your legs, and there are toilets. One great aspect is the flexibility. You book a particular crossing time, but if you arrive earlier, you can usually get on an earlier crossing at no extra charge (about every 30 mins) – at least with the FT option – don’t know about a standard one-off ticket. And if you are a bit late because of traffic, you can get on a later one with no extra charge (if hopefully the next one is not full). At £440 for 12 months, even if you use it 3 times, it”s can be worthwhile costwise. I recommend the Tunnel!
