Why is that?asianflava wrote:In school, we called ours the "Roach Coach".
Roach Coach is a colloquialism.
It is slang for the RV or Trailer that brings food to people (usually in a work or carnival situation). There are at least two schools of thought for the words "Roach Coach". One is that these greasy spoon type traveling food boxes may be less than stellar in their cleanliness and thus maybe roaches (IE bugs) infest them. Second thought is the vision and sound of the horn blowing as the coach pulls uP to its usual parking place at the same time each day. The persons running to the coach to get hot and cold food and drinks are as roaches coming to food. Thus Roach Coach.
Hope this didn't get lost in translation Finn?

Hurricane Hinge source in the UK
I want to let you know I took the time to look into hurricane hinges in the
UK and or the EU. Got some negative email replies but then I received a
reply from "POP Brown's"in the UK today.
(Excerpt from Li'l Bear USA)
NEW and IMPROVED!!! "Better-Than-Hurricane"
Leak proof Galley Lid Hinge
* Still 2-piece Extruded Aluminum - mill finish!
* Lower Profile Crown
* Tighter "Nesting Pocket" Within the Crown (less slop/play)
* NO Lid-to-Roof Offset!
For UK and European customers: Pop Brown's in England is now a stocking
dealer for this hinge!
Contact Kris from his website - www.popbrowns.co.uk
It isn't apparent that they sell this hinge on their web site but as you can
see below they do. Please make a mental note for those that follow, so
you may help them if need be.

Just one question though - What does that mean by NO Lid-to-Roof Offset!
Is it easier to install than the ones before?
