  1. Amongst our cars we have the se nav version on a 65 plate. great car,but i do like volvo as a whole.only gripe is a little hard on the suspension over speed humps.not like our older v70 xc that was like on a cloud
  2. Another 9 pleae 1 x free stop over windsor castle coach parking9specialy 12 space parking for overnight caravans and motorhomes. 4 x Henley four oaks 4 x broadway CMC new total 690 ours for 2019 total 62
  3. Whilst i dont want to start a salted or sweet popcorn.I am amazed at the amound of speeding towing,not just caravaners but all type of trailers.The last 3 or 4 outing for us have been with the moho.and we keep to approx 62/63mph as we find it returns good fuel fig.But the amount of items being towed overtaking us is breathtaking.I twin axle van swaying from the middle lane to the slow and middle to the fast,and a good guestimate of 70mph.How are they getting away with it.Or more importantly ,how are they stopping beats me? And most of the time its on a friday .Are they in such a rush to get thaat Perfect pitch?
  4. we have just ordered a new Volvo XC90 2.0 T8 [390] Hybrid Inscription Pro 5dr AWD Gtron. all the figure stack up but im yet to find the nose max . Not sure yet if we are going to use it as the towing car yet and we have some other car that wwe use already. i too thought it may be under powered but the top spec 1 demo was a treat to throw about.
  5. My d5 has a 2.4 in it.didnt know they done a 2.0 in the d5?mine is the se nav model not the r design,but thought they had the same engine unless it to do with the power pulse.either way mine is brill if a little thirsty.
  6. So its not just me then.Children (and some adults) are ok without ball games near cars and caravans. Especially when they think its ok to go under our van to get the ball,But only once
  7. another 23 bit of a switch around due to small family matter. 1 blackhorse CMC Folkestone 3 camping le mans 7 camping le oceans brem sur mer 6 caravan of 4 winds, Crèvecœur-en-Brie 3 le clos cacheleux miannay france 3 henley four oaks henley on thames ours 53 running 595
  8. Good to know these tips.We are off on sunday thru france.so will be extra vigilant
  9. Sometimes it makes me laugh,I wonder what people carry in there front locker alone.Many a time ive been opposite ,the Pullup on pitch rushers,and seen what they have in there front locker. So you could not put a pin in there for the amount they take.full to the brim.Awning with extention,and then a extention on that.50+wind breaks to keep the 4 dogs in.All for a weekend.funny but sad. Was on a site other week and pitch oposite has a 50ing tv in the awning.....all for a weekend.
  10. So ,with all of the above post taken onboard ,its said that no matter what the bottle weighs empty it will always have 6kg(ish) of gas.great, But when trying to establish a total weight,there is still a big tolerance. of x2 bottles can be as much as 10kg+ it prob no wonder folk cannot get there nose weights correct,if we keep having to check bottle weights. So im off to lite the cadac,put the heating on gas along with the fridge and have toast from under the grill and 10 min boiled eggs for breakfast all so i can tow the van home.
  11. Bit sad all round.But prob oreso all the workers,and not forgetting folk that have paid deposits etc
  12. I think its the cushions they cannot get hold off???
  13. This maybe ok if you dont use alot of gas,but in a allround situation of trying to get better for our money we have been doing more rallying.So sometimes off grid,its inevitable to use more gas.Ive used 4 bottle this year.but the cost of rallying has probably outweighed what we would normally pay if we stayed on club sites,even tho we have still been on club sites too. But my point really is how much gas are we getting as to the weights of the bottle.seems it can be any where from 5 to 10kg.
  14. yes and i probably should,but most of us are fussy about weights,and as a supermarkets says ,,every little hurts. But i get what you means.The only thing is these days payloads are getting less and less.even for larger twin axles, our is only 130kg
  15. Just the stanard 6kg propane calor https://www.calor.co.uk/shop/6kg-propane-gas-bottle.html
