  1. Hi all , owe caravan fully loaded which we don't load to the max allowed 1,420 kg I've got a 67 plate 1.6 diesel 120 Bhp Vauxhall vivaro which I use for work , I want to sell my 4x4 and buy my wife a little run around so this is my question , will my van be man enough to tow my caravan especially steep hills bit worried it being only 1.6 , 120 bhp , my car is 2.0 diesel 180 Bhp we only tow once a year in France not worried about site as I have seen vans on the sites we like to use , thanks Pete
  2. Hi, give lee Davey caravans a call & tell them you are interested in buying a caravan from them but you have no storage they gave my friend a list of site when he bought off them, also Staplehurst caravan storage site when you ring wait to speak to maureen not her son tell her that you want to start caravanning and that you are desperate for a place, winter times not many people move about so may be easier to find a place April/ may when folks are on the move, Pete
  3. Hi springtime, I had a look on you tube and that vlog is 7 years old, thanks for you time though, pete
  4. Thanks for the replies, wood farm I heard most of the fish have been eaten by otters & sorry val should have been for England hope someone moves it, Pete
  5. Hi, we are looking for a site with carp fishing, don't have to be big fish, dont want a rough and ready site got to be clean and tidy I don't care but the wife won't be to happy if the facilities are a bit below par if you know what I mean I will be used for practice for her up coming backside kicking contest, we live not far from dartford Kent so somewhere within 3/4 hour drive, we have already booked eye kettleby for may but this trip will be for a couple of weeks in August, thanks in advance Pete
  6. Hi, my wife has bought me a surprise tickets for Grand Prix qualifiers on the Saturday, just had a look local hotels all booked so was thinking of taking the caravan, can any one recommend a local site or near by site, we have parking for the day and has anyone been to one of these days, what should I expect any tips, thanks pete
  7. Good review, so much so I want to book a pitch for a week at whitsun, been looking at the older side north I think, really into my fishing & being adult only is a bonus, my questions are, is the fishing any good only want to take a float rod & small feeder rod to catch carp 8/10lb max , is the pub/ club house ok, are the standard pitch a fair size as all the superior pitchs are booked & if my son & his girlfriend decide to come with us would they be able to put up a pup tent, more questions to follow I'm sure but thanks for now, Pete
  8. Sorted, was reverse polarity plugged into another bollard and no more reverse polarity & all worked fine, thanks Pete

  11. We are on a French site now plugged electric in got reversed polarity everything works turn fridge on all lights flashing then fridge turns off did have a reverse adapter but after probably 20 years of taking it & never using it left it at home, any ideas thanks Pete
  12. I go fishing, believe me you get fishing snobs ( I've got the most expensive fishing tackle) , many years ago I also played golf & you get snobs in golf ( ive the most expensive clubs ) , I work as a builder yep even tradesman are snobs ( my hammer cost £25 my hammer cost £4 from b&q because we lose so many) , we have a newish shiney car & caravan but I admire someone who has a much older car/ caravan on site not someone who has a new shiney new car/caravan , the site we use in France most of the French have caravans that she held together by duck tape ( no joke ) ,I'll talk to anyone but some times I just want to be left alone, sorry got to go love island is on, Pete
  13. Yeah can't blame them we would have been the same
  14. The site we have been using in the south France for owe holidays is not very far from a very busy town/beach area so I know the atmosphere would have been fantastic after France won the World Cup & I just wish we was their to witness it , did any of you good people on site at the moment get to see there enjoyment & what was it like
  15. Sorry forgot to say I also wanted to use it on owe family cars, pete
