  1. Be good to have you back in the team!
  2. That's because only the early ones had a hinged board, mine slides.
  3. Work off the chassis plate, thats what VOSA wil do! It's a big caravan for a relatively small car though, Will make towing a bit uncomfortable and stressful. Perhaps look for a smaller van at this stage? The towing is such a big part of the whole caravanning experience it's best not to make it more difficult than it needs to be, you simply won't enjoy it
  4. I notice on my new U4 the heating pipes fun in fluted aluminium boxes along the floor to wall. It is noticeably faster to warm up than my old U2.
  5. Did you know there is a fitting kit for the Russell Hobbs microwave? I had to replace mine after a short time under warranty and the base plate lifts the microwave up to centre it in the aperture. It's only really a piece of 10mm ply with the holes drilled and slots for the vents. Looking at your photo, does the door not catch on the bottom?
  6. If it's not been serviced then you'll have to pay. Can't imagine it being expensive. Why not ring your local dealer and ask?
  7. They’d stop it before you’d realised it was detached....
  8. But if it were to come off at speed then the caravan would be flapping around behind the towcar with no way of pulling the brakes on to stop it? You make the breakaway system redundant, I don't see how that is safer
  9. suspect you have no mains 230v into the van. Do your sockets work?
  10. The high quality Michelins that were fitted to my Unicorn when it was new lasted less than 3 years before the sidewalls cracked allover, both wheels and both sides. I noticed my new Unicorn no longer has them fitted as standard...
  11. Mine needed replacing at 3 years on my U2. Needless to say, they weren't replaced like for like! Not impressed.
  12. I'm available to give feedback-but they won't like it
  13. Did mine last year, very similar to above. No problems. The key is to use a small fluid pump rather than relying on gravity by draining down. I bought one for £10 from towsure. I was amazed at the poor condition of the old fluid in the bucket and how much better the heating was afterwards.
