accessallkit Posted July 24, 2007 Share Posted July 24, 2007 On reading a recent article in a Landrover magazine my husband and I realised we are not alone in the habit of waving to other Defender drivers and getting a thrill when they wave back. We have met many other landy drivers over the past few years and feel we are well on the way to becoming part of the landy family. Our own little landy family consists of a 1989 90 (my husbands first landy and a work in progress), 1999 Disco II and the latest addition in the last month a 2005 110 XS SW our pride and joy. We bought our latest landy with the intention of travelling far and wide, so in the previous six months we have been collecting all the required equipment a roof tent, roof rack etc You can imagine our excitement at finally getting it on the new landy. What better way to spend our summer holiday than travelling from our home in Inverness to the south of England and giving our new equipment a good run for its money. After our trip last year to Billing and the Landrover Show and meeting so many pleasant and interesting people from all over the world we thought this would be a good place to stop for a day trip on the way. So we arrived full of enthusiasm to pick up some bits that we hadn’t managed to get and also some spares for our trips to come. We arrived back, arms laden, to our 110 to find that someone had stolen our Roof tent, Roof Rack, Jerry cans and Ammo box containing Tools and gas cooker. You can imagine we are distraught. This would have been no easy task as we put it on with a fork lift. To add insult to injury they also badly scratched, scrapped and damaged our 110. There is also problems with the CCTV at the site so any hope of identifying the culprits is gone. We are writing this letter to ask for help from the landy family and also warn them if they aren’t aware that roof racks etc aren’t covered under your normal Car insurance. We have lost about £2K worth of equipment and would hate to think of someone else having to go through the same experience. But where we ask for your help is if you come across a Technitop roof tent or Outback roof rack for sale please get in touch with us (07783952142). These are quiet rare in the UK as there is no UK Distributor. We in no way feel that anyone from the landy family is involved because who would do that to another landy enthusiast. The only thing that has raised our spirits in the last 24hrs is the landy drivers that have waved to us while driving along the M1. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
