  1. Access is easy. Living in the city I can't be sure about the time from the Hook but it seems about right as it's autobahn most of the way if I remember correctly.
  2. We used to live across the Road from the Dusseldorf Exhibition Centre so didn't need to use the site. It is an event well worth visiting but to do it properly I think you do need a couple of days. I'm sure you would find something that would suit you
  3. Measure the hole and if it is square, like the one in the front of our 2005 540 UK, it will probably be 400x400mm. You can buy roof vents of that size from caravan dealers or breakers. If you go to a Hobby dealer it will probably cost an arm and a leg! Other dealers are usually more reasonable. I had to replace one on our old Lunar and it was simple to remove the old one and fit the new one. Gordon
  4. Cheapest I found was Caravan and Motorhome Club. Gordon
  5. The Microwave will be plugged into a socket behind it. Check to see that it is in fact plugged in. If it is, and definitely not working, you can replace it with any microwave that will fit the space. Gordon
  6. I don't know if your X3 is the same as an X5 as far as detachable tow bar fitting, but on my X5 I have to remove a plastic plate under the bumper to gain access to fit the tow ball, and as a part of the fitting it has a threaded socket to accept the towing eye (In case of breakdown) . I fit the towing eye and attach breakaway cable to that. My tow bar is a Westfalia. Gordon
  7. SFM Caravans have lots of Hobby windows. They may have one that fits. Failing that Exhaust Ejector Company could make one using the old one as a mould. Gordon
  8. My Hobby 540 is 5.4 Metres so I would assume it will be 5.75 ,metres plus the length of the A frame. I may be wrong but that's the way I've always understood the Hobby Model designations to work. Gordon
  9. I have already replied to your original query. It is in the Caravan Insurance section. Gordon
  10. Ours is with Motor Home and Caravan Club. Had no problems at all and the quote was the best one we could find. Gordon
  11. Google SFM Caravans. They may be able to help. If you have no joy Exhaust Ejector Company can use you old window as a template to make a new one. SFM currently have 3 pages of Hobby windows. There may be one there that will suit. Gordon
  12. What was the cause? Gordon
  13. Tomos, Do you mean it doesn't work on gas or electric or both? Is the 'fridge fitted in a unit with cutlery drawer, microwave etc? if it is you may find that it is should be plugged into a socket behind the cutlery drawer ( Assuming that the layout is similar to our 540UK). If not it may still be possible to check behind the 'fridge in another cupboard. Have you checked all the electrical breakers and fuses? If it is the gas side that is not working have you checked that the correct gas cock is turned on?( Might sound obvious but plenty of people do it.), If it is and it will not ignite it could still be a fuse etc and if not the igniter may be U/S. Gordon
  14. Number relates to a BMW X1 first registered 29 June 18. Wonder if the plate was cloned to steal the caravan? Gordon
  15. That is what I did. The end bedroom didn't have any power sockets so I fitted a double socket with two USB charging sockets. Gordon
