  6. I can only speak as I find every time I have been insured with saga when it was time to re insure out of 3 quotes saga was the dearest a year later as I was not with saga they was the best price ?

  9. As said above the only problem will be having to set up then pop out to do a shop after a long days travelling most sites have a small shop for milk bread etc if you know the Where you are going to end up you might be able order ahead of your arrival don’t fancy taking a caravan into a super market car park Usually get into France and drive through the night will probably book a site for a night do a shop then move on

  12. Swift Eccles 560 have towed with 2 bikes on the rear bike rack in uk and Europe no problem with stability the only problem was when using a cover for the bikes the air got in and it filled up with air it it did not feel as stable so I don’t use a bike cover toying with the idea of fitting a Thule ranger roof bag to the rear bike rack for chairs table etc. hope this helps
