    Unsafe caravans to be seized

    It wouldn't resolve the wheel detachment or blowouts. You have a solution, now you need to find a problem which there isnt.

    Has snobbery crept back in to vanning?

    Snobbery is a mindset and nothing to do with how much cash you may or may not have. One of my elderly neighbours used to be my mother's supervisor, she has looked down on me for over 20 years - despite the fact that I could (now) probably buy and sell her 2 or 3 times over. Edit- never once been blanked on any site when offering a 'good morning' - maybe I've been lucky?

    Sites near forest cycling

    Recently back from Black Knowl, Brockenhurst, New Forest. Many cycle tracks around there and a specific cycle map is available of the area showing all track intersections with a number corresponding to posts set at each track intersection. You could be dropped anywhere in the forest area, cycle to the first intersection that you come to, get the post number, look at the map and know exactly your location, foolproof. One of our favourite rides is from Brockenhurst to Holmsley railway station cafe (disused line) for breakfast. One of our regular sites to visit.

    Caravan insurance

    Insurance policy terms normally have a clause that states in the event of a total loss claim the policy term comes to an end. Buried in the small print.

    Traction Control follow on from Stop/Start

    Min snow/ ice, traction control automatically cuts power (by braking the driven wheels) when it detects slip - the problem is that on a poor friction surface you will have slip, to a degree, and all that happens is power is cut. By deactivating traction control it allows the tyres to find natural grip by allowing the wheels tl slip unto you eventually find it. It’s why there is an ‘off’ switch

    LR customer service.

    Had the 1300GT version of the 1100. Kept it 4 years, no rust or other problems but did have it Ziebart rust protected. Flogged it for a Trumph TR6.

    Age to Price - Sweet Spot?

    Possibly too soon to tell, however the hyperactive development departments have found many more ways to make the vans fall apart even quicker.

    food to take to france ?

    When the grandchildren were small we would try to bring them back some clothes. We tried a few years running and tried markets, supermarkets and specialist shops. The choice was very poor, the style out of date and the prices extortionate. We calculated that we could buy stock at retail price in M&S and sell it on a French market for a large profit. Anyone enterprising could have a nice business. Strangly we found that ladies clothes for sale to be old fashioned and expencive. But the local women mostly seemed to not wear them. Could be the crossed the channel for more choice. John

    Thetford Aspire 2 Oven Door

    Thanks for reply. The main point in my post is my concern about. ....... "The top part of the rubber door seal is exposed and leaves a gap into oven compartment." Can you confirm please if the top edge of the seal on your oven is exposed with the oven door closes Is the seal the loose type fitted to most domestic oven doors with 4 hook clips at the corners and the corners rounded. ?. I have discussed this problem with the dealer and viewed the problem in several other new unsold vans but not actually in a van sold to a user. So it may only be a new problem. .??? It looks like the door is too small for the opening. ...??

    Time for tag to come

    Mine came in about 7 days from memory. You could order it and assign a card now, and then change the associated card when your new foreign transaction fee free credit card comes. It's doable on their web site. HTH.

    New Bailey Phoenix 2019

    See they have still included the roof join to ensure a shower inside when it rains. How thoughtful of them. I do note they have redesigned the front inside so that the problem of the rippling GRP liner should be fixed. maybe give them a brownie point here.

    recommend a nice place to stop m40

    Like you, we hate parking in the HGV area. The Warwick Services gives you no option. Next along, Cherwell at the A43 junction (J10), has a long "side" road for caravans which, although opposite the HGV area, is usually ok. A little bit of a hike back if you want to use the serviceds. Best though is Oxford services (M40 J8A) where there are a number of diagonal caravan allocated places at the far end of the car park, and these are not accessible to HGVs. The HGV park is quite separate.

    Musing over new tow car next year?

    As everyone else has said - keep the x-trail. They are reliable & a bad one is rare as rocking horse doo doo. 67,000 is low mileage. We've decided after having many different brands that we are going to try to buy only jap or german from now on. I have the shogun (Jap) mrs W has a mini (german) & son has a mk4 golf (another german). His golf is a 53 plate so 15 years old & drives like a new car even though its got 140,000 on the clock.

    Motor way services

    Whichever services you stop at, if you're in with the trucks, be prepared to hold your breath when opening tbe car door. The smell of urine is disgusting.
