  1. sorry but end bathroom was not on your needs list! Are you needing a fixed bed? I don't know enough about layouts and am not sure if you can get end bathroom and fixed bed, hopefully others can and will advise. You have mentioned grand children and parents, how many birth caravan are you looking for? macafee2
  2. I think it is psychological, they think they are getting somewhere that much quicker. macafee2
  3. your 62/63 if it is a speedo could be more 56/57 and so your guess at their 70 could be 65. I use my dash cam as a speedo even past speed cameras, no defence if I'm stopped for speeding but when it shows 60 my analogue speedo is somewhere near the 65 and my digital speedo about 63. I could be considered speeding when overtaking another outfit that is showing 60 on their speedo. I am not trying to speed just, trying to tow at the speed limit, 60mph Whilst there is a 60mph limit, some outfits are steady at 70 while others are very unstable and there is also driver attitude. There just is not enough Traffic police to patrol our roads and so the chances of getting stopped are minimal. macafee2
  4. welcome, perhaps if you said what you wanted from a caravan, members may be able to offer some thoughts. We have varied thoughts on lay outs. macafee2
  5. welcome to the forum macafee2
  6. I think you may need planning permission, the best people to ask are the planning authority and council for council tax. Not enough information to answer some of the other questions, how far from drains, electricity and water are you? macafee2
  7. oh, you don't define a good tow car, someone else does. What happens if you don't like the tow cars considered good by others, surly you would not buy something not considered good? That must leave you in a dilemma Professional writers can and do for what ever reason miss issues with things in their article, some of these issues are very important, perhaps more important then something they cover. Whilst people here may only have personal experience of one or two cars their knowledge is still useful. Further more, with so many contributors the range of cars covered could be vast. macafee2
  8. I don't know the answer but are you able to download now, turn off your wi fi and then play the film? macafee2
  9. well, unfortunately those roads may be the ones that need to be driven. re read my post, particularly the bit that says "tram lines at the site so the centre of the road is higher thus hitting the underside or jockey wheel?" Neither tow ball too low or suspension too soft apply in this case. Was at a CL last week and this was a major concern, my road wheels touching the ground a couple of inches below the centre of the road macafee2 is that before or after a caravan is attached? macafee2
  10. hitting sleeping policeman, tram lines at the site so the centre of the road is higher thus hitting the underside or jockey wheel? macafee2
  11. who is the dealer? how experienced are you at towing? If you are inexperienced at towing something so heavy ignoring the advice may not be wise. A caravan in my experience is not as stable as a car trailer and even at 85%, if the caravan has a mind to, it probably could still cause an accident. The survey may be right, average is 94 % but did it Talk about experience? macafee2
  12. Anyone else find they need to remove their smoke detector when cooking? Once we have finished we put it back Our cooker is next to the door and the fire alarm is in front of the door. Not sure that's the best location for it, perhaps at the front of the caravan may be better while still doing its job. macafee2
  13. some caravans are just unstable, bit like is it the Euro Fighter? "Switch off" the electronics and its a pig to fly. My dad never used a stabilizer, my Swift was rock solid no matter how it was packed and at any speed I towed it at. My Lunar, does not like passing or being passed by big lorries and likes being nose heavy. macafee2
