This is my tight access to garage number 2. The photo shows it well.



I've just added a couple of convex mirrors, one to each wall. There's already a large overhead mirror in place.

The one on the offside will allow me to get closer to the right hand wall:



The one on the left allows me to get close to the left hand wall with the nearside wheel arch:

Close:


Closer:


This is all about getting a standard width Plus 4 in the garage. I can get the narrow body in and out first time most times now. Practice does make it easier!

Reversing is an option, but space on the right is also limited, and I prefer the exhaust pipe at the door............

Oh I do have a couple of wheel jacks so when the going gets tough I can convert it into a supermarket trolley.

In my case what a frightening sight to wake up too!
I much prefer Dave's use of mirrors - although in my younger days........

Does this mean a new Plus 4 is imminent?
