      Forum upgrade   12/10/17

      Hi everyone, As you're probably aware, we've been in the process of upgrading the Caravan Talk forum software for a while. I can now confirm that the software has been upgraded and we're fully up to date. Please note that this new software is quite different in appearance and function, so may require a bit of relearning. We are in the process of refining the look, features and experience to make it a bit better and more familiar. If you spot any issues please let us know in the feedback forum. Unfortunately any posts between Monday morning and now have been lost. This is due to when the database snapshot was taken for the upgrade, this may also affect new members since then. We do apologise for this, but we have tried to keep disruption to a minimum. We are already aware and working on the following issues: PayPal payment issues for CT Supporters Forum design, lack of CT branding including colours Temporary loss of reviews databases Navigation bar needs refining We will keep this list up to date, so please check here before posting new updates, or to keep on tabs of our progress. The software was upgraded in order to provide you with a more secure, reliable, faster experience, whilst providing us with more tools to improve the features and options for the forum. Thank you for your continued support. Ben and the CT Team

  1. Help!

    Right, from my cars handbook I've attached a picture with info on towing. Yo be honest all the abbreviations don't make much sense to me. The MAW of the van from the VIN is 1270kg. So am I right in thinking the van is too heavy for the car? Thanks

  4. Help!

    Hi, complete caravan novice and newbie here so please excuse me. We inherited a lovely compass illusion 490/4 from some friends who were buying a new one. We have it on a local site at the moment but I want to bring it home for the winter. The issue is we have just swapped our cars and now have a Peugeot 2008 1. 6 100bhp and I don't know whether we can legally tow the caravan with this. I've tried to search online but am finding conflicting information and the jargon quite confusing. According to one site, the 'mass in running order' of our can is 970kg, and the Maximum allowable weight is 1270 kgs. On the car info, the Web says it can tow up to 1270 (max towing weight braked). Then I've read about an 85% weight ratio- would that be the mass in running order figure of 970 for the van against the kerb weight of the car? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
