  1. Not all park owners act the way Durbanite describes! Our park (Crowhurst by Battle) break everything down so that we know what it is we are paying for and they do their utmost to sort out problems and certainly would not ask us to move!
  2. We have had both and each has it's pros and cons BUT we have now been a caravan user for 15 years and love the convenience when on site and also the lack of costs when not in use = no road tax.
  3. Sorry should have said -- HAL Locate is a proactive GPS tracker system and a very good one at that, we have had our Airstream 10 years and always keep the HAL Locate system operational and YES we do want our van back if stolen.
  4. To any Caravanners with old HAL Locate units fitted be aware that many of these will no longe work properly due to a problem with the satellite embedded clock system see :- https://techxplore.com/news/2019-04-gps-year-cicada-problem.html -- HAL have an update for these older units but it does mean sending the ''box'' back to them as it can not be done ''over the air'' Hope this will help older units to stay protected
  5. Yes but the articulated bracket locks to the wall when folded in for travel so that the TV is rigid.
  6. Our Airstream has a good size door as all the furniture is fitted after the shell is built!

  8. If you want keep the van on the Ausys obviously know something else https://www.9news.com.au/videos/caravan-being-towed-by-4-wd-rolls-over-on-bruce-highway/cjyy8d73d002m0hp9y5bsyqck
  9. I removed our folding step because it could catch on protrusions and get bent - now have the standard portable grey plastic caravan step.
  10. Morocco is a great place to tour - we did it back in 2010 and would have gone again but health problems prevented it.
  11. Have always found Super U to be good BUT like supermarkets every where some are big and some are huge.
  12. Took me about 5 years to discover that the red dot on the elevating pole should be at the back when travelling -- real logic there!
  13. You will probably find that the edging tape was applied by a machine in Italy where Swift get their internal furniture from ---- before I am corrected Substitute Germany, France or Eastern Europe for Italy.
