Inward investment into the UK car-manufacturing sector is at an all time high, but the number of suppliers available to provide the parts for car manufacturers is at an all time low. Over the past 20 years, virtually every large 'tier one' supplier stopped manufacturing in the UK and moved abroad. This means that the majority of the parts that go into the new cars manufactured in the UK have to come from abroad. The supply chain for UK car manufacturers is far more complex and therefore more vulnerable than it was two decades ago, which is the last time the car industry was strong in the UK.

Jeremiah Webb, National Sales Manager for Holiday RV South, has announced the recent addition of the Forest River Surveyor to their lineup of new travel trailers. "The decision to add the Surveyor was in no small part driven by our incredible success with the Forest River R Pod. We are easily the largest R Pod dealer in Colorado, but we found that a lot of people who check out the R Pod decide they want something a little more spacious. The Surveyor is a natural fit for those buyers. It's similar to the R-Pod in many ways, but it provides the added space these buyers are looking for for just a few dollars more."

Motorists of a certain vintage will remember the introduction of the Princess. Making its debut in 1975, the Princess caused something of a sensation with its modern shape. It quickly became known as the 'Wedge' due to its space-age profile - high at the haunches and then moving towards a low and elegant nose.

The 1800 also became known as the Land Crab because of its rather quaint way of moving along the road in a sideways fashion due to some classic British Leyland engineering.
