  1. https://www.aldi.co.uk/bio-laundry-sachets/p/064265127362600 I don't do laundry so I'm not to familiar with the complexity's of all these chemicals , very much a black art Therefore could someone with far more experience than me confirm the above short cut is the correct thing to buy Cheers
  2. Cheers Townie , tried the Aeros this morning and a great fit. Ordered a set
  3. Thanks for that , me dad has a set of Aeros , I'm nipping to his tomorrow to see if they fit Cheers
  4. Hi ,, could anyone help ,, I've changed my tow car and bought a 2018 L200 and the towing mirrors which I used on my Discovery sport are to small to fit. Is there anyone with a similar L200 series 5 and if so what tow mirrors do you use Cheers Paul
  5. Had mine 2 years been to Benidorm twice pulling 1800kg caravan and it has been perfect. No oil used , no warning lights , comfortable , pulls up and down hills no problems and av. 24 mpg towing (brim to brim checked) and I don't hang around 60-65 mph towing. Like everything else the people how have problems shout the loudest , owners of cars / caravans which perform with no issues just get on with just using them. I have no issues with recommending them , I find it strange that a DEALER would knock his product.

  7. Hi all , retiring in a few months and looking at buying a static. We have had a static in the past plus a number of motorhomes and tourers. We are currently using a tourer which we intend to keep. We have looked at a number of sites in this country and narrowed it down to 2 sites. But we have thought about buying in France as we tour quite a bit in France and Spain for a number of years. We have found Caravans In The Sun offering English spec statics in a number of France locations at very reasonable prices for both the vans and site fees. Have anyone any knowledge of the company good or bad or any suggestions on buying statics in France Thanks Paul
  8. We have Fire Stick running from my phone on it's Hot spot , I have 100gb with 3 unlimited calls , unlimited texts on my phone and it costs £20 per month. Came back from a week away this morning and it worked faultlessly , I also use my tablet and laptop from the phone and again works fine
  9. We have one of these https://www.argos.co.uk/product/3317893?&cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59158|acid:532-198-3455|cid:200294090|agid:12525739130|tid:aud-484139256461:pla-115453278770|crid:66128560970|nw:g|rnd:6176925918279953380|dvc:c|adp:1o1|mt:|loc:9046500&gclid=CjwKCAjw36DpBRAYEiwAmVVDMCHUn8HCcRfGfLyyv4srM1vZH2ujE6IBx8YLtx1FKEf0CO3-Y1nifhoC-skQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds It is a counter top fridge , we don't need it while travelling but like yourself is useful when in Spain for extra storage , beer fridge etc. Also it is a third of the price of a compressor coolbox
  10. For a free app to use off line I have "Here We Go" , Up dates every couple of months , has taken me around France and Spain and I have it on both my phone and my tablet. Can not find fault with it
  11. Try Haven sites in either Prestatyn or Pwllweli (which is our fav) You can get them for around £10 per night outside of school holiday periods
  12. http://www.windbreakleisure.co.uk/wp/ Not cheap but fantastic piece of kit , we have used this system for the last 3 years and it has never moved. We have a dog so it makes him secure on site. First couple of times putting it up takes a little time , but now we can have it up and secure in 10 mins Again it is not cheap but we have had it 3 years and it looks in perfect condition so there is years of use left in it Paul
  13. Crusader Strom can be up-plated to 2000kg free of charge when buying new
  14. Picked our storm up new in June. Since then we have used it alot, 6 weeks in Spain plus a few weeks in this country, away on Tuesday for 2 weeks. It towed from home to Benidorm and back with no issues behind a Discovery Sport. I tow at or above the speed limit and under any conditions it behaved perfectly We have had NO things fall off or break or stop working, the bed is great, the bathroom is again just right, I'm a big lad and have no issues with the shower, the front lounge is fine it has just enough sockets and USB sockets and all seem to be in the right places Overall we are more than happy, we actually went to buy the Buccaneer Cruiser but could not justify the extra £5k for a slightly wider van and self leveling You will be really happy with the van
