    God I am dreading when OH's 19 year old Yaris needs a replacement. She has had it for 16 of its years and I know that finding a car that she likes will be a nightmare

    help finding caravan to match my car

    The current Alpine 4 does have a fixed bed however. I agree the OP's car is a tad limiting but would have been fine weight wise before caravans started having the additional features over the last 25 years.

    Maybe one of the Sprite Alpine range their current 4 berth fixed bed is under 1300kg. Not sure about older models. I would have thought that other manufacturers have suitable weights in their basic model ranges I would have reckoned most lower weight fix beds would be around 1450kg MPTLM though

    Red Pennant Quote

    Yes, a number of years ago I used to have an annual travel insurance. Because I had been treated for testicular cancer 10 years previously the initial quote was very high. I simply excluded testicular cancer as a claim. As somebody who uses a CMC to pay for bookings withC&CMC we know better Durbanite

    CMC bookings

    It might work for some but turn others away. As I said earlier, I do three tours. First two are between mid April usually and end of July with a 3 week gap between. Usually means 16 sites. Not always CMC sites but sometimes there may be 6 and sometimes 14 or so. Before I start out on these I will book another 7 sites for September.

    CMC bookings

    Glad to be able to give you some amusement as your imagination seems lacking. I doubt that many know their intended sites 12 months ahead for all holidays nor do I know all. plans that far ahead. We usually have three tours between early or mid April and the end of September. They generally vary between 45 and 55 nights. We sit down in the dark months of November and decide where we would like to tour and set up a tour route covering the period from (say) mid April to end of July. This will form two outings. We book sites on the route which may be commercial, or one of the two clubs' sites and covering between 9 and 11 sites. This year these bookings were made 5th November. We don't plan what we will do from these sites until we arrive but do plan to meet friends on some of our stops. So we do have advanced plans. Probably February we will consider September route. For us however December is a bit different. We often have a couple of weeks without the caravan abroad in October but it is a long time from then until April. We therefore spend 15 nights in December on a site that we have used for the last 7 or 8 years. We do not consider this a holiday but just the opportunity for me and OH to spend time together without other distractions and to get out and about. A time to chill as well. No TV Doesn't work for the site? Perhaps. However not being able to book two nights at a weekend does not work for a lot of club members who are working. I retired around 11 years ago at 55 but for most of my last 20 years in work I did not do weekends. I was able to get around 12 weeks leave a year. and rarely went away for less than 10 nights using probably two sites in that case. Many are not able to do that.

    Well I have known what I will be doing at December 12 months in advance for the last 8 years.

    Not possible to please everyone and so let's simply disenfranchise the weekenders. Is that your reasoning? Some don't use the internet. Some use the internet at home but don't have the means to do so away. I suppose they could spend a few hundred quid for a tablet and data package

    Well there obviously IS a filter. As for having a different effect for different user groups; as somebody who does the setting up and admin on a website I know full well that different filters can easily be applied for different users group. I know because I have been caught out like that!

    Well this is the only site where typing a double C gives CMC. Only on this forum so there is something on this site WispMan and seems to depend on status. ie members but not moderators

    I see that the automatic filter has changed your abbreviation for credit card to CMC Another reason why I dislike such automatic filters
