  1. ive not had v5 yet, only bought car on wednesday, i kno mk3 is 1800 so was curious, 2.0 duratec zetec petrol, no idea what gearbox, thanks
  2. hi all unsure if this is the right spot for this if not my apologies and can an admin move to correct point,, just bought a mondeo mk4 58 plate 2.0 zetec, anyone know what its braked limit is, i know my caravan is way under but still would like to know thanks all
  3. when u finally get the plug and wire it up it will all slot together 1 way round so if u find it wont go together properly in the case/cover then try rotating the circle bit with the pins, the plug goes in the the car socket 1 way round and the pin bit goes into the plug 1 way nicely
  4. my sierra and focus do about 4000 miles a year and i do my own maintenance and still keep them up etc, my focus usually passes fine and sierra had 1 advise for play in rack, i do checks regular as tca's etc can fail anytime really i do know people who never check sadly though
  5. we have a porch awning only and used it each time we go regardless of how long we stay or weather etc
  6. you may need to go older, my caravan is a 91 elddis and its 5 berth with mtplm 1050, towed by my focus with 1200 braked imit
  7. i have 2 towcars and a few items requiring a plate like trailer and bike carrier so i use these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Trailer-Number-Plate-Clips-Holder-Spring-Loaded-Stainless-Steel-one-pair-lmx553/272920904481?epid=1066704341&hash=item3f8b5a8321:g:o-8AAOxyHslQ6DWO
  8. thats fair enough, last year mine went up by about 2 pond and wasnt bothered but 20 is a bit much, im sure some are like dont b tight but im not loaded hence have the older van and car etc and theres no harm trying to save a few quid
  9. the price went up by 20 yes, it was 98 for the year but its now 118 i run 2 cars and am familiar with always getting a cheaper quote and always been told never to stay with current provider though i sometimes find current are good
  10. fair enough, my tourer is at home with decent security on it but im not happy with price going up by that much
  11. hi all i have an Elddis pamperos xl 91 5 berth, ive had this for 5 years and had it insured for 2, ive just had my renewal and its gone up by 20 for the year, i wont be renewing as ive not used it this year and never made a claim ive also been with them for the whole 2 yrs, towergate caravan insurance, last yr it went up by £2 i think so wasnt bothered but this its its from 98 to 118, whos best for the policy, im not a member of anyone except here, ive done quotes on compare caravan ins and prime plus and quest are the cheapest, thanks all
  12. hi Stuart, im unsure what brand it is but i decided at the time a bit bigger and better distance, reason for changing was the smaller 1 flickered a lot on the monitor and the new one doesnt so much better, mines on all the time when driving and i find it easier and safer, like for reversing onto the pitch this is mine, may have different specs https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Waterproof-Reversing-Camera-Car-Van-Security-Rear-View-18-IR-LED-Night-Vision/392807249674?hash=item5b7522f70a:g:RLcAAOSwMNJd8fQ8, my 1st cam came with monitor so didnt need that second time it look
  13. im sure many we be along after me with better cameras, but ive got a standard camera and 7 inch monitor and they are both powered via the caravan 12v as i dont use the 2nd plug so my battery can be used, mines wired under the van to the hitch and another wire into the car and when we go away i simply link the wires and turn on in the caravan, works great no interference, some say its a faf but fine for me,, old v new [the bigger 1 is the new 1 and is much better]
