    Tight drive

    I have asked on the local Facebook pagers for help on Thursday unfortunately there will no time after disembarking to have the repair done. It is 2012 Powertouch Classic mover the L/H gear box has gone. We do not care which way just went it in the drive but as we are using the caravan it would be nice in forwards.

    Tight drive

    My motor mover gear box has gone, I need to get on to a tight drive and would like advice on how to tow on to it, am I right in thinking that if pull up on to the pavement on the other side of the road and go past the drive by about one foot the pull hard round towards the drive I may be able to make this possible? The caravan is to heavy to push also I know not a lot advice can be given if you cannot see the drive.
  5. Maggie & I hope are well soon, enjoy your time in Spain.
  6. Under the recommendation from JayDug and CT members I fitted Mad springs some years ago to my Kia Sportage 09 they transformed my towing.
  7. Matriculation is a everyday term in Portugal for non Portuguese to register Cars, caravans, trailers and Farm machinery etc with Portuguese number plates.
  8. The Gobur Slimline 600kgs to Gobur Clubman 810kgs the Pennine Pathfinder is 1000kgs. The Pathfinder is also good contender.
  9. Yes they do need to be registered (matriculated) with a separate number plate.
  10. We are setting up home in Portugal in a Static home, we would like days out in a caravan possibly a week or so, storage is a problem or the lack of funds to pay for it but we do have room in our garden to store a folding caravan. We have looked at trailer tents and folding caravans one make we like is the Gobur with toilet and shower has anyone had dealings with this type of caravan?
  11. The manufacturer will only fit blinds to the bedroom at a fantastically high price, possibly thinking ahead of myself but good to have a idea of what we need as a lot of extras are hard to find out here in Portugal. including picture hooks!
  12. Our static home will be a new one from Swift or Willerby then transported to us in Portugal we would need mosquito blinds throughout the year as we do now. Until we know which company we are buying from we have little idea of the type of walling.
  13. In November we return to England and will clear our furniture from storage unfortunately we do not think it make us much money some it will go to charity. We would like to keep some pictures and wondered about hanging them on the wall to our new static home, also we need to fix mosquito screens to the windows can they be screwed to the walls or even the windows.
  14. We are residents in Portugal and will be ordering a new static mobile home from Hull, my understanding is that we do not pay V.A.T. on a new home, can anyone confirm this?
