  1. check out the SsangYong Rexton W superb 3500Kg tow car.
  2. I had the same issue with our Swift...... super glue has cured it.
  3. I was heading for the west coast ( ish ) of Ireland, looks pretty iffy to me. Ex- hurricane Lorenzo could still cause some exciting moments !
  4. I,m thinking that towing to and staying on a forest camp site in a hurricane is probably not a great idea, think we'll have a staycation this weekend.
  5. Cheers Mike, that site looks pretty good.
  6. according to that it looks ok, seems I might be squawking about nothing, might be a bit damp but that's do-able in Northern Ireland
  7. I've got 100 miles of motorway and dual carriage way heading west so I'm thinking it's going to be side winds most of the way. check out hurricane Lorenzo for Northern Ireland on Thursday
  8. Hiya Fireman Iain, thanks for the reply, I have a Rexton W so at 2.1 tonnes with a towing weight of 3500kg and a Sterling Elite 580 strapped on the back I'm ok with percentage ratios etc What I was looking for was a rule of thumb if you will, something like......... up to about 30mph is manageable for a reasonably competent caravaner but gusting up to 50mph is going to cause stability problems unless you are very experienced ......... it's not a hard and fast rule and no one will be quoted, but it might just give me some pointers and keep us both a little safer. again, thank you for your reply Sir. Robbido.
  9. There is no collective yes there is...... A collective is a group of entities that share or are motivated by at least one common issue or interest, or work together to achieve a common objective.[citation needed] Collectives can differ from cooperatives in that they are not necessarily focused upon an economic benefit or saving, but can be that as well.
  10. Looking to go away this week but there appears to be the tail end of a hurricane heading our way, what sort of wind speeds do the collective think it's safe to tow in ?
  11. Lots of replies but no help / advice at all. I have towed with the Kia Sportage Diesel and it was a lovely towing vehicle, stable, smooth and very capable. I have never towed with the Hyundai but I believe the i40 is 1700cc and would wonder if it would be slightly underpowered.
