  1. They may close the toilets and showers so that we use our own facilities. I’ve got trips booked in June, July and September so will wait and see. On a positive note it seems cases are reducing in China
  2. We found the bed short and we aren’t tall. Changed to an Elddis 860.
  3. Our van has a solar panel. That keeps the battery charged up without plugging the van in or charging the battery from October to March.
  4. We have a twin axle and it’s almost impossible to align both wheels in order to fit both ALKO locks. Now we have this set up.
  5. You can’t align both wheels on a twin axle with the motor mover to fit 2 Alko locks. We went for this arrangement after trying to jack the van up once. The other alternative is a lock and level under the wheel if you can get the car close enough to use the cigarette lighter for the air pump.
  6. I like the sound of the fountain. We always try to get pitches around 98
  7. That’s dreadful, however I must say after being in a bad storm last year and seeing the damage caused to the caravans from poles and awnings being blown over vans, we use inflatable awnings. Hope you get a result on your claim.
  8. I think there’s probably more problems with speeding and inappropriate loading of the caravan causing fishtailing, rather than towing over 85%.
  9. I tow a twin axle Elddis Avante with the 2 litre 190 PSI DSG Tiguan. It tows like a dream, you don’t know the van is on the back. I’ve ordered another due in March
  10. Doosan that is very tight. You wouldn’t be able to get wheel locks on .
  11. Yes I know what you mean. When we arrived we were booked on a grass pitch but it was waterlogged and we got stuck. Luckily there were some hard standing pitches free so we could have one of those.
  12. Thank you now I know what they are called I’ll try and order one. I must say the dealer is very unhelpful. It’s going in for a service and I asked if they could replace it while it’s in. The receptionist said no it’s only booked in for a service they won’t have time! I said it’s a piece of plastic which just needs sticking on !
  13. Thanks for all the helpful replies. I presume the blighters got in through the vents in the front locker. Off to buy some traps and peanut butter today, plus removing everything today for the winter. Never had this problem before, can’t believe the damage done to the cover in just 7 days!
