  1. The day you arrive is day 0. If you arrive in England on a Friday you can take the test on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
  2. No idea what fridge we have in our non plus Phoenix but it works really well as long as it's defrosted frequently but the problem with the design is that the fridge is on the awning side and it can get a bit hot in the awning at times... Currently the freezer is at -19.2C and the fridge at 2.8C.
  3. On or before day two. You can have the test a minute after you get off the plane/tunnel/ferry.
  4. Toyota and Hyundai are already producing hydrogen cars and the Japanese government invests a lot of money in infrastructure. More than a 100 hydrogen fuel stations in Japan.
  5. I'm sitting in an Isabella Thor now and I've been doing so for 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week for over a year and its perfect for my back.
  6. Night temperatures in southern Spain is a lot colder than most would beleive but our house is at 1000m and frost nights are very rare.
  7. Limit must be at least 4% of towing limit. If your Duster can tow 1500 then towball limit must be at least 60kg.
  8. Depends on how good or bad your towcar is. Some I would be happy to tow way over the kerb weight. Other cars i would not want to tow anything with. I would not get a twin axle at only 1500kg.
  9. Peterborough services used to direct caravans to the hgv area. Need to be able to reverse in to the bay off course.
  10. How's the mattresses? I belive they now use sprung mattresses front and rear instead of that rubbish foam they've used on the non + Phoenix.
  11. EU is working on a digital green certificate with a scannable QR code and a digital certificate to ensure its legit. No idea how non EU citizens would get it but the vaccination card and NHS app is to easy to fake to be of much use.
  12. A 2017 yeti 4x4 is either a 150hp petrol, 110hp diesel or a 150hp diesel and all of them have a wet clutch DSG which is bullet proof as long as oil is changed on schedule. We tow with a 2016 150hp diesel L & K manual and it's a brilliant tow car.
  13. To the best of my knowledge the only country in Europe where caravans are not registered is in the UK. The only caravans that gets stolen are British vans. We toured Eastern Europe last summer and was usually to only British caravan on the site. We were also the only caravan that had any kind of lock. We where sometimes asked why we locked and when we explained that it was an insurance requirement they were surprised since they never heard of caravans getting stolen. If you steal a caravan in the rest of Europe what are you going to do with it? You cant register a stolen caravan. I've signed it.
  14. Buy a used full size Isabella. It will be used long after the budget awning has been binned. If the pitch is big enough I would get a wider than a standard awning.
  15. Not sure what you find at odds since I'm saying my wife can travel with we without time restrictions except for the country where I'm a citizen? I asked Europe direct contact centre.
