  1. Mine had a space saver, which you are not supposed to tow with. I bought an alloy and cheap tyre as spare and a sheet of 30mm polestyrene. Cut a hole in the sheet to fit over the wheel well and spare, then replaced the carpet. Most people don't even know it is there. I have used the spare once in 8 years
  2. And how many people switch the pump off? I never do. As for which system to use, when I had the Burgundy I always had the direct connection. The burgundy has an internal pump that I used to leave switched on to compenate for the low pressure of the Aquasource. Now that I have the Unicorn 4 Cadiz, that has the external pump, I find that the Aquasoruce pressure is too low for me, so I have purchased the float system for the Aquaroll.
  3. The skirt rail on my 2008 Burgundy was plastic like the OP's and wore the same. I think the cause was an Isabella skirt. The bead on the Isabella is woven with a cord insert, which feels a bit rough. On lesser awnings the bead is plastic and smooth. I am trying to take more care on the new van, not that it realy matters, the Burgundy lasted us for 11 years and the skirt rail was only about half an inch shorter because of the wear.
  4. It pays to be sure, my caravan was purchased on the 9th April 2019, I already have the first service booked on the 4th of April 2020
  5. At night when in bed I used to hear a drip in my caravan. Took a while to find out that it was from the corner of the caravan onto the ground outside. When it was quite its surprising how a drip can be amplified.
  6. The Ferry Meadows club site still has the old Caravan Club signs outside it. During peak periods it is always full, so no one has any trouble finding it.
  7. This one does, just bought one and it works great. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ratchet-Crimper-Cable-Wire-Terminals-Electrical-Insulated-Plier-Crimping-Tool/372751900042?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
  8. Try FleeBay, you can get boxes of loads of various terminals for that price, some even include shrink wrap sleeves.
  9. I use a ladder leant on the caravan. Just put some foam pipe insulation on the ladder uprights where it sits against the van. A bucket of soapy water, a mop on a long stick and there you go.
  10. On a yard long strip on mine, three SMD's in the middle of the strip 'sometimes' flicker. Is that a power supply problem?
  11. Most campervans have a cupboard for a Portapotty, my Bambi and the Comet did. But now I am a bit older and less able I have seen sence and have a caravan with a proper end toilet and shower room.
  12. I live with a Cadiz and find the bathroom quite adiquate for its use. The beds suit me and my better half just right. We spend the most of our time, in the caravan, in the bed, the lounge or the awning. We are well pleased with the 24 grand we spent on it. Your choice is your opinion, but it is YOUR choice, the Cadiz is ours. Horses for courses.
  13. Welcome to the world of the Unicorn 4, mine has decent sized locker with the casette at the back. there is plenty of room for chemicals and a watering can, I keep spare waste pipe and oil and lubricants in there as well.
  14. They have made - for me - a disastrous mistake with the position of the radio speakers. They point directly into an earole when sitting on the bench seats. That would put me off buying one.
  15. I have no trouble at all finding the steady nut, there is a cutout on the skirt to show you where it is. If you have problems bring yor caravan around to my house and I will do it for you
