Ed's trip to the hospital for his annual health check gives him inspiration for his Your Motorhome column.

Further details

As the new columnist for 'Your Motorhome' magazine, Ed is enjoying a comfortable life on the open road searching out top tips for mobile homeowners. He's finding inspiration at every turn and, in particular, at car parks - namely the hospital car park where he has to attend his diabetes clinic, and subsequently the swimming pool car park to resume a swim regime when challenged about his health by the hospital. Will his tip of letting down one's tyres to get under car park height barriers prove a hit with the readers?
