  1. Listen friend dont preach too me about motor cyclists. if they want too put their selves in dangerous positions then thats their lookout mirrors or no mirrors. I will look in my mirrors as an when i see fit. End of. peter.
  2. I have always found the ideal time too be between 3 and 5 years old. peter.
  3. Yeah "dont worry sir that match will be fine" next customer please. peter.
  4. Do spend most of your time looking in the mirrors then ? peter.
  5. It makes no odds too me i can tow perfectly well without them. I may not be able too see the rear edges of the van but who needs too. Like i say try turning a couple of degree,s and see how much of the rear edge you can see then. peter.
  6. May be it was ours !! we had a 2008 twin axle van stolen in early 2010 that was never found. peter.
  7. No your not alone as i only fit them too satisfy the law as i have a 4x4 with large wide mirrors and can see perfectly well without them. You can talk all day about what your supposed too be able too see but the minute you turn right a few degrees for instance the n/s mirror is useless and same for the o/s when you turn left. peter.
  8. Before i retired i spent some of my time working at a large transport garage for my company and they had a fleet of hgv,s. Now i noticed that some of the tractor units had pieces of rag tied too the mirrors and hanging down so i asked one of the drivers what they were for and too my surprize the driver said that when travelling the rag was blown onto the mirror and wiped away the water as it flapped in the wind. Strange but true. peter.
  9. Had single and twin axle vans and the twins have always towed better through sheer weight and the stability of the twin wheels. peter.
  10. Same here i always fill the car boot first. peter.
  11. I,ve towed with both but its auto for me evertime. peter.
  12. It will be no harder or easier than most other caravans. If you have the right car and dont mind towing then all caravans are easy to tow. Just get it loaded right. peter.
  13. Why did the dealer say they have a" habit "of coming off ?? I and many,many other caravaner's have never lost a wheel or even come close too losing one so why say it has a "habit" of happening ?? peter.
  14. Trust me if it does start too misbehave you will be the first too know and you will wish it had,nt. peter.
  15. Well its got too be easier than fighting real crime bless em. peter.
  16. Not more problems with the (best thing since sliced bread lol) 13 pin set up. Dear o dear. peter.
  17. Thats the way too do it. peter.
  18. Quite right it can show a really good voltage but the only true test is when you turn the key and ask it too perform. peter.
  19. It works like a paddle changer push forward to change up and pull back too change down. Whichever gear you are in will appear on the dash readout. peter.
  20. Not me for one . A 50mm towball is a 50mm towball no matter who makes it. peter.
  21. Our van was like that from new. Under the removable carpets it has a wood effect vinyl covering which is very serviceable. peter.
  22. Blimey that just what you need on holiday but as said too leave things like passports and credit cards in a car is pure folly. I,ve always said that once outside the uk dont expect a lot of cooperation from the powers that be. There are still people who go too all sorts of weird destinations and think that nothing will happen too them and if it does it will be sorted out. peter.
