  1. Some good advice has been posted - First check your insurance. Then take the car (empty) over a weighbridge. Then you will know how the "kerbweight" compares to the MTPLM. You should have no problem towing at around 100% (as I do) as you have years of towing experience and so long as you check the items people have posted re noseweight, tyre pressures etc. etc.
  2. I've used Greased Lightening a few times and it is very easy to use. But I also agree with Mr Plodd's common sense and logic. The last time I used it, the back of the caravan was filthy so I washed it first, the front was dirty so I washed it as well. The sides were a little grubby so I applied GL direct. Re the washing, I doubt I used one bucket of water and it took less than 10 mins. It can only be personal choice how dirty is dirty and whether or not you use water first.
  3. Hi, the technical engineer was private and not part of the ITV station. We started with a local gestor for information on importing the caravan. He recommended the technical engineer. If you are anywhere near Javea, I'd be happy to help further. Lutz, there are all sorts of quirks re Spanish documents!!!
  4. You can buy a plastic housing that goes over the plug and socket. I've carried one for a few years - although I've never used it.
  5. We have a Lunar Delta, brilliant caravan. We exported it to Spain where we live in 2016 and never had expectations of any repairs under warranty. We had it serviced for the first 3 years by a UK qualified engineer to keep up the warranty, but with the demise of Lunar we abandoned any thoughts of warranty and I serviced it myself this year. I'm quite hands on and have carried out various repair/modification jobs. As has been said nearly all parts will be obtainable from the individual manufacturers. The only thing that worries me without Lunar is that I may not be able to obtain any replacement body panels in the event of a severe shunt. If the price is good and I'd be looking for 30% less than other comparable makes, I'd certainly buy a Lunar.
  6. Looks to me as if it would be fine. Do you get the same-ish readings on all 4 nodes when you use it on the caravan? Also, make sure you get the prongs into some wood and not just on the plastic wood coverings - of the wall panels.
  7. Or have an internet search Google/Amazon for a new bracket that suits your needs.
  8. Write a list of everything you would like to know or check and cross the items off one at a time. SIT DOWN and TAKE YOUR TIME, dont be rushed! The idea of using your phone to video or just record what you are told is excellent. Enjoy!
  9. The one I saw was a conventional domestic electric unit! Fitted in with a shoe horn!
  10. 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.
  11. Our daughter was 1yr old. Now she is 46yrs old.
  12. 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!
  13. 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 lounge beds additional payload to fit aircon (underbunk with ducting through the adjacent wardrobes) additional payload to fit a roof mounted wind out sun canopy Twin axles to cater for the additional payload and for safety (IMO) as we were towing long distances (Spain, Scotland, Austria etc) So we changed to a Delta TI. We didn't look at any other makes as we loved the interior decor and layout; and the high payload. Five years on and we still love the caravan and have no plans to change it.
  14. 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.
