    help finding caravan to match my car

    At 1320kg Laden, I think that this combination should work just fine. What do others on the Forum think? John.

    Euro 6, an interesting article.

    I think that you're probably right Ian, at least, I hope so. John.

    Fuel consumption

    It's a big outfit. As Steven says, try experimenting with your speed. Mine is much smaller but does have a 'sweet spot' at around 58mph on motorways. From your car I would expect 30mpg solo and 18 - 20mpg towing. John.

    Dreadful customer service from Coachman Caravans

    On the very few occasions when I've needed help with our Coachman from Wandahome Knottingley they have been very good. I wouldn't go to Coachman, I would always go to Wandahome if I needed assistance. John.

    Coachman VIP pan drawer

    Fitting an extra catch seems to be a very good idea . We had a drawer in our Coachman Vision wardrobe make a bid for freedom. I'll certainly look at this as a solution. John.

    first trip abroad

    Hi chris76. Bishop Auckland to Dover is a bit of a trek. Have you considered Hull to Zeebrugge? Many people from NE England and Scotland use this crossing to avoid driving down the country to Dover. We live near Leeds and have been very happy using Hull / Zeebrugge for many years as a drive to Hull is far more pleasant than a trek to Dover. We take our holiday usually in SW France and the difference between driving from, for instance, Toulouse and Calais and Toulouse and Zeebrugge is negligible and once back over the water we only have an easy drive home. Something to consider? Or maybe I've 'bowled you a wrong 'un'? John.
