  1. I use an old pair of Milenco Aeros with the original clamps on my 2017 Sportage. The clamps need to be placed very close together and fixed to the top of the mirrors as close to the car as you can get them.
  2. That’s good to know. Thank you. Thinking about it, Swift sell a lot of caravans, so if it was a big problem they would go back to conventional lights.
  3. The new company has reopened Lunar Caravans website. On the warranty pages it clearly states that 2018 vans onwards have a 3 year warranty and 6 year body shell warranty. As this is now the new company's website I would hope that they would honour that.
  4. I have been reading that some tow cars have a problem with LED caravan road lights. Does anyone tow a modern Swift van with a Kia Sportage? If so, have you had any issues with the caravan's LED road lights, and how did you fix it. Many thanks Steve
  5. I looked on their website a couple of days ago and either missed it or it’s been updated since. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I now have all the info I need at this time. Cheers.
  6. I saw this last night. Unfortunately she mainly covers new models. I'm specifically interested in the 2 berth caravans. Thanks anyway. Steve
  7. Hi, Does anyone know which Challenger models have been dropped for 2020? Cheers
  8. I tend to do it slightly differently. 1. Feed into awning rail. 2. Peg out close to caravan. 3. Inflate main beams. 4. Peg out other corners. 5. Peg out sides and front. 6. Inflate bracing poles and fit. 7. Velcro buffers to awning and press against caravan with poles. 8. Peg out storm straps. That works for us but it really depends on the style of the awning. There are many ways to do it. You have to decide what works best for you.
  9. If its the same as my Lunar it is held on by a type of very strong Velcro. Its not Velcro but it works in a similar way. It will just pull off but it does take a bit of effort.
  10. Port de Limeuil is one of the best sites we have ever stayed on.
  11. The large washer sits in the cap. I bought a new cap which came with the washer already installed in the cap.
  12. We have the same problem. We managed to get an awning that fitted so that the bracer beam fitted just to the left of the awning light.
  13. We have a 250 Rapide which we are currently selling. It’s a good awning. It stands up well in all weathers and is dead simple to put up. I like the Vango products a lot and although you could class this as entry level it is very good indeed. It come with rock pegs, mallet, storm straps, in fact everything you need to use it out of the box.
  14. We had a 2003 Swift and the roof was just like this so I expect it is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. Our current Lunar is the same. Some makes/models do have bonded roofs which should not be like this but many do not. I certainly wouldn’t be worried about it.
