If anyone spots a Winnebago motorhome with a rear mounted metal tool box and PVC pipe and the words “Team (Boogie or Bodgie or something similar)” written in blue across the back window, could they please take a note of the registration and post it for me. It would also, if not yet repaired, have damage to the passenger side rear. This vehicle side-swiped our poor old Troopy in the carpark of the IGA store in St Helens, Tasmania, around 4pm on Sunday 25 February, stopped to look back and then left. An eye witness saw the incident and it was caught on the IGA CCTV but neither could pick up the vehicle registration, although the eye witness said the plate was black and white. The St Helens Police also have some broken fibreglass bits they’d like to return to the driver.
Any help would be appreciated as the repairs excess alone will put quite a dent in our pensioner’s budget.
Thanks,
Pete
Retirement finally here, got the Troopy, got the van, got the plans, got the itchy feet.

Hi Pete, So sorry to hear about your predicament. Sadly there are some people like that out there. Anyhow, I would suggest you post your message on as many other "forum sites" as possible. That should at least increase the possibility of someone recognising the Winnebago. I do hope you have some success.

My daughter and her partner are not flushed with cash. They rent in Bondi, a Sydney beachside Eastern Suburb full of backpackers, lawyers, entrepreneurs, new-agers, yuppies etc.

Daughter returned from grocery shopping to find the front corner of the plastic bumper on the CX-5 stove in with the foglight pointing skywards so it won't pass the next rego inspection. Plastic bumper and paint a minimum $2000.

You guessed it, no note under the windscreen wiper.

Police in this state treat that as hit and run with very heavy penalties.

I hope they find both #$%^&s, but you have more chance than my daughter does, Pete. Good luck.

Probably tourists, and will need to catch ferry back to mainland soon - set up a watch at terminal to catch them

NSW plates may be white characters on a black background (old and inherited or custom) and also black on a white background (one of the standard combinations).

Some personalized Tassie plates are also black and white, black with white letters/numbers.
