Hi there,
Does anyone have any prior experience of converting from LHD to RHD?
I've googled until my fingers bled and searched on here, but I think it doesn't like short terms like 'LHD'.

Any resource you wouldn't mind pointing me to, I'd be very grateful.

Cheers.

Have you driven a lefty? The only one that would be awkward would be a gypsy/cheetah. Really are no problems driving a lefty over here, even hutch can do it and he lives in the shire too.

Yes, I've driven and owned LHD.
Problem isn't me, it's the wife.
She wants to be able to use it to go shopping, have to get the ticket for the barrier to raise.

I appreciate that's a small thing, but she'll be anti from the word go if I don't at least have a plan...

LOL
That's exactly what my mate uses in his Dodge Dakota!


My missus has the coordination of a biscuit though, so would be more likely to take one of the kids eyes out on the back seat rather than reach the ticket machine...

You'd probably be better off making a rhd into your ideal camper

It's a DoKa

All immaterial, she's said she's willing to give it a go, so there's a win!
