  1. It's very much your choice and also what your insurance company requires.
  2. I have a TyrePal TC 215B with 6 sensors and it works very well. Whatever you get must be able to reliably operate over the distance from the caravan wheels to the monitor.
  3. My advice is to try and find a Defquto five star rated company that meets your need. I'm currently in the process of renewing my insurance, so have been getting a few quotes on a New for Old basis for our 2012 Clubman and so far the Caravan and Camping Club are looking best value. Good luck with your search and I hope you enjoy using your caravan as much as we have ours.
  4. Two years ago I repaired our Lunar Clubman spongy floor using a two pack resin and wood dowel kit I brought from a company on eBay . I found it a relatively easy job that took a total of about two hours or so and that included lifting, relaying and welding the joins in the vinyl floor covering. Clear instructions are included in the kit.
  5. We leave our flush tank about half full when travelling as recommended. I drain the tank into the watering can I use to fill it and then pour about 4lt back into the tank.
  6. I agree that they are expensive. We have recently returned from a 4 night stay at the C&CC site at Sandringham which cost about £78. For the same period the cost at the adjacent CMC site would have been £85. I accept that the electricity charges now account for about £5 per 24hrs but these charges are pricing us out of the market. If our health was better we would be heading south by now.
  7. I have CoPilot on an old mini iPad and have written about it on my blog. It has recently been updated and will run on a phone without data use if you wish.
  8. All manufacturers seem to produce duff vans and motorhomes. We brought secondhand on the assumption that any problems would have bee discovered and rectified.
  9. I use a CoPilot Caravan on and iPad but it will work on a phone or android pad. I wrote a little about it, it may be suitable for you. I think they allow a free months trial. http://wandering.me.uk/copilot/
  10. I fitted a solar roof panel primarily to keep our battery charged when the van is in storage. This has been very successful and the fact that we can now also go off-grid when we wish is a bonus. http://wandering.me.uk/solar-charger/
  11. Given the high cost of any car change how long will it take for you to recoup the money spent on changing cars? Financially you could be better off sticking with what you have.
  12. Pull out while you still can, your "deal" smells.
  13. In my experience very accurate.
  14. Ours is due for removal and scrapping during the coming spring service. I plane to store the spare wheel in an under bed locker.
  15. There is no statutory age limit for caravan tyres, it is condition that counts not age.
