  1. Is it new or used? Dealer or private sale?
  2. I assume you are planning to break you journey between Blair Drummond and Sango sands somewhere. Check you mileages and remember that some of the roads around the Highlands are narrow and twisty, take your time and enjoy your journey. There are plenty of options for food in Ullapool and the Broomfield Park site.
  3. Awning manufacturers make a number of standard sizes. You will be lucky to find one that is EXACTLY the measurement you want. Taking your measurement of 1090, if you bought an 1100 awning it is only going to be 20mm longer than your exact length, over 1100 that is insignificant.
  4. Mine works fine on our 2018 Buccaneer Clipper. We have Night Mode set from 23:00 to 07:00 then default for the rest of the 24 hours. As it can vary considerably what time we go out, depending on my wife's illness we don't bother with Day Mode.
  5.

  6. Whilst I understand the wish of manufacturers to keep weights low to appeal to the maximum number of possible buyers, they and the NCC need to wake up to the fact that current payloads are totally inadequate for any one wanting to tour for any length of time, especially when you add in the fact that the majority of owners probably want to fit a motor mover. On a twin axle caravan an all-wheel mover can take up half the user payload. Perhaps if those who manufacture our caravans and their cosy collaborators in the NCC were actually real caravanners they might realise what is needed in regard to user equipment and possessions for a three week tour. Come-on NCC get real with you calculations for assessing user payloads
  7. Buccaneers are fitted with a filter to the kitchen sink, at least my 2018 Clipper is, it's I the cold feed hidden behind the kitchen drawers. Thinking of removing it and replacing with a length of pipe
  8. Your contact is with the dealer and it is they who are responsible for the repair. They then claim the costs back from Elddis. Even if Elddis refuse the claim from the dealer is still responsible to you .
  9. I have just re-readthe Elddis Warranty as printed in the Handbookfor my 2018 Buccaneer and nowhere does it say anything about the warranty being reduced if you choose to have your service done early. All it says is that the Service must be completed within 60 days prior or 60 days after the date of sale. I would go back to your dealer and/or Elddis armed with your handbook to ask them to clarify where it says the warranty is reduced.
  10. With the 8ft wide caravans the situation is even worse. Most cars using standard extension mirrors will not be able to meet the criteria, even on my Volvo XC90 I have invested in a pair of longer arms for my Milenco Grand Aero mirrors as I wasn't happy with the view the standard arms gave me.
  11. Have you checked the system for pressure switches, they may need adjustment, either at the socket the pump plugs into or in-line.
  12. I always thought CMC insurance covered you for several days to let them know you had changed your 'van. Not sure because I always informed them in advance when I was going to collect a new one. Just found this on the CMC website. "Alterations to Cover Any replacement Caravan will be automatically covered for the new value for a period of 14- days, from the time that You collect or take delivery of it, during which time the following procedure must be completed:- Contact Us with details of the replacement Caravan, i.e. make, model, year and chassis/ CRiS number and cover requirements by telephoning Us on 01342 336610 or email insurance@CMC.com quoting Your membership number and Caravan Cover number. If You prefer to write to Us, please include Your current Caravan Cover Schedule with the information as shown above and send it to: Insurance Services Admin, Caravan and Motorhome Club, East Grinstead House, East Grinstead, West Sussex RH19 1UA. Email: insurance@CMC.com Additional Benefit If Your new Caravan is to be collected/ delivered prior to the sale of Your present Caravan, both Caravans can be covered for 31-days to allow time for sale or disposal of the old Caravan. If this extension is required, please advise Us before the collection/ delivery date of the new Caravan. What Will Happen 1. If a higher Cover Limit is required You will be required to pay the additional Contribution due to increase the cover until the renewal date of Your Caravan Cover.

If no additional Contribution is required, an amended Caravan Cover Schedule will be issued immediately. 3. If a lower Cover Limit is required then We will arrange for the appropriate refund of Contribution to be sent to You and issue an updated Caravan Cover Schedule"
  13. I needed to recalibrate our E&P system, just follow the instructions in the manual, it's straightforward enough but have a good long spirit level and remove the carpets so you are measuring the floor accurately.
  14. With all the extras you are planning, you will need to keep a careful eye on the weight so as not to overload the chassis.
  15. A good pair of towing mirrors.
