A teleportation machine. My daughter said many year's ago that she'll invent one when she's older -she had been sat in the car for hours going down to Kent.

She's just done v.well in her gcses and is planning to do physics, maths and further maths at A level and has her sights on a degree in physics. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she might get round to inventing one - would be a few years off though !!!

Self erecting tents and awnings including pegging. Self unloading of all the equipment. Self filling and emptying water and waste and toilet. Sounds like an automatic husband would do that.

How about designing a lever-operated peg extractor?

A very very loud alarm that sounds in the cab of those MH folk who knowingly keep their waste water drain open all the time because they're too lazy to use the MH dump on site or use their own bucket or cannister. It'll be inaudible fo me on the adjacent pitch, of course. That way I wouldn't have my relaxing break spoiled by the massive irritation of seeing yet another rude dirty person dump a pile of frothy toothpaste & bacon bits on his pitch & then drive away with dirty water pouring onto the site roads & main road. Oh they know that valve is open - I've lost count of how many open eyed "oh dear, really, I didn't know" conversations I've had, which have had no effect. It's an offence that can get you thrown off site ... if you're caught by the owner. But a piercing alarm might just be a deterrent.

If only every site had its very own Mike from Attwoolls. His Youtube videos show he knows exactly what to do to pitch and pack away without any hassle. I'd happily pay for someone to do it for us - but only if they could do it properly!

I made one when I started caravanning 30 odd years ago, it inserts the pegs and levers them out far enough as to make the final pull easy.


I haven't got a photo but its a claw hammer with the claw part ground out to fit the pegs, fibreglass shafted hammers from the 1 shop are good.
