Moved this thread to what I believe is the appropriate zone and made it a sticky for future joiners. Basketball

Great to see you guys at the weekend , hope you enjoyed yourselves....
Can't see that question has been raised before , Danbury I'm sure will answer it specifically for you but I'd go on gut instinct, if you feel it's too windy to put the roof up then don't. Can't say we've ever experienced any problems with the roof up in what I'd class as relatively high winds, others may well have...

ok in 3years of ownership we have only had to drop the top once . This happened in J.ogroats Scotland when we really did think that it would blow off ( possibily an irrational fear ) but never the the less at about 2 am we got out of the sleeping bags and dropped the roof.

Having sorted the insurance just wondering if anyone uses visual deterrents like the bright yellow steering wheel locks?

Been browsing the JK catalogue and came across the Cobb BBQ, seems like a good idea and after a bit of digging found they have just launched a compact version. Any body got one and have any thoughts or experiences over the full size version?

We have a full size one with all the bits (thanks sunny!) and we love it. It cooked all the veggie burgers for the Sleepover BBQ this year too.

I can confirm that even the largest size of the Disklok steering wheel lock NOT fit our BraziBays - I bought one for my Landy Defender and tried it in the VW, but the (standard) steering wheel is just that little bit too big.

Cheers Matt. Search only talks about the full size ones. I already know they are well thought off. I was trying to check out the compact.

Cobb oven/cooker fab ..brill..really easy to use and clean ..cooked Christmas dinner on it (away at Malvern Hills for xmas).really good ..only down side is the Cobb brickette will last for 2 hours and if your meal.is done in less time it obviously carries on burning ! Which sometimes seems a waste..but all round top bit of gear ..recommend

Used ours at the sleepover last weekend, cooked some ribs for our evening meal then once we'd eaten I cooked a dozen sausages that were for cold sausage sandwiches for lunch the following day.
