  1. I have an Audi A6 which has a spacesaver spare. The thing I'm dreading, if I need to use it, towing or not, is what do I do with the wheel with the flat tyre when I have changed it? It won't fit into the spare wheel well so would have to go in the boot but I often have the dog there! I wish manufacturers would put a little thought into things. Cliff
  2. I had an XC90 as a courtesy car for a few weeks and did a 'u' turn putting one of the front wheels on the verge where it just sat spinning! That was a 4wd! We now have an Audi A6 allroad which is excellent. Cliff
  3. I not only tell my insurance company that I have a towbar but I also tow a caravan. I believe it is relevant as it would be a claim on my CAR insurance if the caravan hit another vehicle (and it was my fault). A caravan is more of a risk than say a camping trailer or small one taking rubbish to the tip. Cliff
  4. We have had 2 caravans with blown air and the current with Alde which is by far the best. Cliff
  5. As it is a club, run for the members, and it was expensive, don't you think the MEMBERS should have been consulted? I do!! Cliff
  6. It would be interesting to know what fuel the op is using. Supermarket or branded.
  7. I have a 2015 version and have to agree, it's lovely!
  8. I have said this on another feed, this is called 'Caravan Talk' for a reason - to Talk about caravan related things! Come on moderators, do your job! Cliff
  9. On the few times I have looked at the caravan parking bays, I find they are not big enough. Now we head straight for the HGV parking. Cliff
  10. Our current van is the first we had with a dual fuel hob and I was looking forward to using it as it would save gas. On the first use it struggled to warm baked beans - just not powerful enough. If you had 4 electric plates that were powerful enough to be useful, how many amps would the hook up have to be? Stick with what we have got. Cliff
  11. Don't you think, as members, we should have been consulted before any renaming? I have always felt that motor caravans were welcome regardless of the name of the club. Maybe I should say I have a touring home. ..! Cliff
  12. Thanks for the replies. I take your points about batteries but at SOME point they will fail and leave you in the dark. If a wind up goes out, you stop for a few seconds and wind again. In these days of not throwing things away (and batteries have a lot of nasties), a wind up is more environmentally friendly. Cliff
  13. We have kept a wind up torch in the caravan for a few years (always ready when taking the dog out for a last wee and changing the gas etc). It has worked well until recently when the winding handle broke - it is only plastic. Can anyone recommend a more substantial one please? Thanks Cliff
