  1. We had the same with a previous Lunar Clubman SB. The cure was to get the wheels balanced. 135 grams required.
  2. That is my thought too. Did someone climb onto the caravan roof in an attempt to gain entry to your house or an out building?
  3. The Kampa Windbreak Pro is still available, I got a 3 panel for £129 a couple of weeks ago. The poles are steel, not aluminium. The windbreak is very sturdy and stood up to strong winds. It also it looks quite a neat.
  4. I'm assuming that you have a Sargent power unit under the offside seat. On the top is a black push button that switches the unit on. Give it a wizz, it may explain why you have no power?

    Hi Robert, I have the Peugeot 3008 SUV 1.5 bluehdi EAT8 which is a sister car to the Grandland. I tow a Swift Sprite Alpine 2 which has a 1208kg MPTL. My car has a maximum tow weight of 1300kg. If your Grandland has a similar weight limit, then being sensible I don't think you will have a problem. As for towing the 1.5 Bluehdi and EAT8 was a pleasant surprise. The outfit is stable and able to make headway with ease. I use Sport Mode when on the twisty and undulating roads, essentially just to keep the momentum going.
  6. I fitted Mad Springs replacement progressive springs to my previous 2010 KX2. The transformed the handling both towing and solo and achieved better confidence. Cost is approximately £315. Cheaper the loss incurred by replacing the car or fitting the SLS system. https://mad-suspension.co.uk/?route=product%2Fcategory&path=2#selecteer-dealer2
  7. We actually gave up caravanning 2 years ago after we became disgusted with the 2017 Lunar Clubman SB we did a 10 weeks tour in. In the summer of 2019 we met up with friends at the Knaresborough cc site and realised what we missing. The seed was sewn and we started looking for a caravan that our car could cope with. 1300kg was the limit for the car. We looked at a Bailey Phoenix, but was unhappy with the build quality. So saw the Sprite Alpine 2 and knew immediately it was for us.
  8. We have a 2019 Alpine 2 and are very pleased with it. We have only had one issue with a front blind not fully opening fixed by myself). We have found the caravan to be perfect in every aspect. You will have a choice is either a full awning or limited to 260cm (or lower) porch. We have opted for a Kampa Rally Air Pro 260 which works well. We think the caravan is very well equipped considering it is at the lower end of the Swift stable.
  9. rov, it shows all the versions on the settings page.
  10. We had a 2013 Avante 574 and had exactly the same problem. I had to retighten the fixing screws after every tow. The problem emanated from out of balance wheels, the nearside being the worst of the two.
  11. I log-in to my Sky account via my phone, then go to TV Guide. After searching for the channel and program I want, click on it and a box appears to record. David
  12. frontend, my Sorento is fitted with blind spot detection and has dedicated wiring. I had to switch the system off as it went into alarm due to it sensing the caravan as an overtaking vehicle. Even with it switched off the warning lights on the mirrors still activated, although the audible warning stayed silent. David
  13. Pro-tec covers produced made to measure roof covers a couple of years ago. I'm not sure if they do anymore as they have nothing on their website now. Maybe a phone call or email will be needed Kathy. David
  14. Geoff, was there not the proper Alde owners manual in the pouch? Mind you, that wouldn't cover the Lunar specific buttons or switches. I guess you have it all sorted now? David
  15. Bubble, there are no silver dome heads on mine, just the six little LED lamps. I assume the screws are under the lamps? David
