Air Horn

Morning all

I passed another RV on the road yesterday and as I beeped my horn and waved - the driver of the othe rv honked a wonderful sounding air horn

For no practical reason other than 'I want one' has anyone else had one of these fitted to their vehicle?

Im no mechanic - so I would have a local guy fit - but had a look on ebay and there is a bewildering choice of horns

any advice really appreciated?

I'd prefer a channel ferry noise, the standard horns on all m/homes is so feeble

As far as I know, all air horns are legal, as long as they all sound at the same time - as that one does. If they sound as multi-tone, one after another, then they are illegal. Think emergency services horns.

So far as I know only alternating tones and "tunes" are illegal.
Steady tones are not.


If you fit one you can then go and act childishly.

I used to have a set that played colonel, bogey. had great fun with that. as the first 2 notes are similar to the 2 tones.

Airhorns

CDC Truck Accessories Ltd have sets at a very reasonable price. We had one set on our old Hymer, they were very effective, but can't remember the supplier at the moment.....well priced....I will continue to think!
