    A motorhoming couple we met at North Berwick had a small 'car' based on a Quad bike but with a roof. It was a very handy bit of kit and not so expensive to buy.

    quads are used by loads in the winter .but i think you need one with some sort of mudguards , and street legal. ideal for carrying twoand the shopping or water. of course you wouldnt want to play in the sand would you?

    Hi Alan,

    The one I saw was street legal (had a numberplate). I think they said it was built in France but I am not sure. I did not take too much notice because it looked like it would not carry my dogs as well as us.

    yes there are several types out there .just make sure it can be registered .there are alot that cant get a certificate of conformaty. they can look very similar .but you cant reg them . i buy them and take to maroc they dont need cert there so you can make a shilling . but tax on import is high.

    There are quite a few makes of these quad bikes, unless you go for one of the big names like Honda/Kawasaki Etc. they can be very unreliable.

    Food for thought here gents, some quad makes are chinese, wouldn't touch them with a barg pole, that said though, it's not a machine that would be used often.

    I'm just thinking, easier on the pocket all round and, I can fab up a trailor for next to nowt. As for playing in the sand, of course, if oppertunity arose!!

    Many thanks...........
