Hi
I have E&P leveling system on my Vehicle which was installed in 2005 when the company first came to UK, the system had been installed when I bought the van by the previous owner.
I had to have some rework done on the system last year due to the fact the originals installers had put the rear rams in the wrong place (they are no longer used by the company). For the rework I took my vehicle to Holland to their service workshop(only some forty miles from the HOOK of Holland ferry), It took a day to move the rams and they also replaced all the wiring and serviced the whole system and all this was done FREE of charge even though the system was nigh on 5 years old(I had been quoted in UK 2500 pounds to put it right).

What I am trying to say that the company is first class and their UK distributors are now on the ball and I would not hesitate to recommend the company or their system.(once you have experienced the one push of a button and the whole vehicle is levelled in a blink of an eye(so to speak) you won't go back to lumps of plastic etc.)
If you have a choice of where to fit the system and can go, I would recommend going to Holland.
If you need any more info let me know but if you look on their web site it carries all the telephone numbers of Holland and UK.

Eric was the person I first contacted but Perri was the one that did the work Hence the E & P of the company name.
Once again if you have the system installed you will not regret it

EP installation

I have ordered a levelling set from E&P and it will be installed next month. First I was charmed with the Alko4HY but for the same price you get a E&P levelling system that weighs 25 kg less.

Had mine fitted about a year ago at SAP Doncaster on my sprinter based camper

Very pleased with both E&P product and SAP install

Lot of money to spend especially on my 10 year old camper but I certainly donít regret it and use it every time we park up even if its flat

I have to say for saving over 5 grand I prefer this method, ''is it level, yes, that's about right, put the kettle on''

We have a bigger set too, given to us for nothing.

No fancy control boxes, no cacophony of wires, nothing to go wrong, bliss.

I hardly ever bother with levelling - the wine glass would have to be sliding off the table before I'd feel I needed to.

I watched a couple in Cůrdoba 'playing' with what must have been a new levelling system. I'm not sure what part they were trying to raise but they'd have one side completely up in the air before it would come crashing down. Then they'd try it again. And again.

I hate to think of the stress on the springs or whatever part of the undercarriage would take the abuse. Never mind the wine glasses!

To my mind itís a VERY expensive bit of kit that does what I can easily do for myself in a few minutes, itís exactly the same with automatic satelitte systems. I have a few bits of kit that cost me less than £50 and it takes me about 3 minutes to get it up and working.

However itís not MY money that others are spending. Maybe Iím a cheapskate but I would far rather spend the £2000, or whatever the cost is, on fuel/ferry/campsite fees or of course wine!!!!

Each to own though eh!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I was referring to the cost of automatic satelitte systems not the self levelling one!
