Seriously - Be careful how much of your payload you use up if you have a 4 wheel drive mover.
Not so seriously -Re auto/manual, I've already said the manual CRV is great.
In the old days, before retirement, I towed with auto 3 to 5 litre Mercs and Range Rovers. If there was ever a problem towing you just put your foot down (could have been the brake or accelerator!).
The only time an auto really came into its own was when I pulled a leg muscle when having a knock up at tennis, not even a match, and I could only use one leg when driving!
Not possible at our storage site, no electric or water supply.
Dealer assured us that he carried out a full handover procedure, but obviously without us present, the day before he delivered the caravan. Not ideal but he is 100 miles away.
