Wallis reports "a while ago I mention a company
called Hillsalive was making a set of 'soft' fitted
luggage for a friend's classic car. This is just
to advise that it has been delivered and he is delighted
with the result . I notice from the Hillsalive website
that both the MGRV8 and MGB are listed so perhaps
in time for Christmas!"
Both cases are fully stiffened of course to ensure
that they will always fit the space. No more stuffing
your clothes into soft bags then cramming the bags
into the car because as Hillsalive
If it fits into the bags
it fits into the car

Peter Wallis posted a note saying "a
friend, who happens to be into Ferraris, has just
ordered several sets of bespoke luggage from Hillsalive
at www.hillsalive.co.uk . On looking at the website
I happen to notice that they also have pattern luggage
for the RV8 - not cheap at £315 but worth
a look see! Peter my friend
has found them to be very helpful and they have
a range of colours for the luggage just click onto
the website and go from there." 060711
Ken Clayton responded saying "I purchased
the luggage designed for the MG RV8 by "Hillsalive"
the Stoneleigh Park show about two years ago!
Hillsalive is a husband and wife partnership and
their quality is very good. It fits neatly and very
well into the boot compartment. One 'large wedge'
shaped "box" and one 'large deep' "box"
which fits into the offside area of the boot. There
is also plenty of room either side of the luggage
to accommodate other articles and smaller luggage
items. They offer a bespoke service with choice
of luggage colour and piping. Expensive, BUT . .
. it saves the arguments about how much two people
can carry in the boot for a weekend!!" 070711
