  1. The one I saw was a conventional domestic electric unit! Fitted in with a shoe horn!
  2. I've seen a domestic air con unit fixed in the gas bottle locker of an average size caravan here in Spain. I dont think it would be difficult to fit one in a static. You just have the outside unit and the inside unit connected by the pipework and the electric cable.
  3. Our daughter was 1yr old. Now she is 46yrs old.
  4. I dont think anyone has mentioned food and drinks. If you are going to one location you could take a minimum of food and shop when you arrive. However, if you are touring with 2 or 3 night stops you will be carrying quite a weight of food. Try weighing - in your kitchen - what you think you might take! You may be surprised. UK caravans do, in general, have a naff payload!
  5. We went back into caravanning after many years out. The caravan was just for the two of us, so we wanted a fixed bed, also it had to be an island bed as one of us wasn't going to climb over the other to get out. We went for a SA as it would be easier to maneuver. We found layouts we liked with Lunar and Bailey. Decided we preferred the interior decor of the Lunar so bought a Clubman SI. I also knew we needed as much payload allowance as possible so we had the upgrade. After 9 months we were really enjoying it but wanted - more interior space, in particular full length l
  6. Ditto re the rear view camera from the fridge supply on our Lunar Delta towed by a Euro 5 Honda. Sounds as if the caravan manufacturer is trying to save a few £s.
  7. Lunar had a problem a few 6/7 (?) years ago with the catches coming undone on the big front windows. They cured this by fitting catches that had a push in button before you could turn the catch. Maybe have a chat with a Lunar (ex) dealer and see if they have any of the new type or get a name for them and have an internet search.
  8. I had a rear tyre blow when I was going fast on a motorway. I heard a thump, then vibration and the steering felt wobbly. Fortunately it was late at night with very little traffic and it was easy to reach the hardshoulder. I felt that the car was under control but I was pleased to stop quickly! We have TPMS on our TA caravan and when I drove over a kerb and destroyed a tyre the alarm sounded so I knew I had a flat. (The reason for going over the kerb is another story!)
  9. Its not a problem in our Delta, but there will be many opinions. Best thing for you to do would be to try it out at a caravan dealers!
  10. and hope you don't get too confused with all the posts!
  11. The fridge needs 12 volt power to work the control panel and then either 240 volt mains OR gas to work the cooling elements. (Unless you are towing when 12 volt is supplied from the car direct to the cooling elements). Do you not have 12 volt or do you not have 240 volt?
  12. I'm fairly sure they are Seitz blinds from Dometic. Have a look at "caravan-parts.org".
  13. It took me some practise to get our noseweight down to 100kg. What do you have in the gas bottle locker? If two gas bottles, then put one in the car. I carry an emergency water supply of 8 litres in our end bathroom so that is 8 kg off the noseweight. I also put our box of tinned food, 8 to 10 kg in the end bathroom - so more off the noseweight. Trouble is that many people will tell you not to load the back end of the caravan as you might get a pendulum effect, ie the caravan swaying. With our back loading, I have never experienced this but I do tend to drive slowly and carefully.
  14. Screws on the inside, sides of the drawers to unscrew the drawer from the runners?
  15. Lots of info to be had here! Are you sure you have got all the air out of the system? To do this you should run the hot water first to ensure the hot tank is full then run the cold until there is no spluttering. Do this from each tap and the shower if it hasnt been used for some time. The pressure switches can need quite a fine adjustment and it is a bit of trial and error. When you turn the taps off and you turn the pressure switch until the pump stops, dont then back it off 180 deg. Try turning it in 1/4 or even 1/8 turns to get the correct balance. Good luck and let us
