    New Caravan - What do I need?

    I am wondering about a jack; doesn't come with one and I don' have one in the car (run flat tyres on the car). Hmm.

    New Caravan - What do I need?

    Too late - got an electric low wattage one; gift from my parents (who have one in their caravan) Picking the van up on Friday, so hopefully now got everything I need; then 2 nights just down the road

    New Caravan - What do I need?

    Thanks all; some really helpful pointers and the article on this site for New Caravans was a good read. As suggested, have found a site 10 mins from the dealer and 15 mins from home, so going to spend 2 nights there after I pick the van up. Phil
  7. So, decided to buy my first caravan and have (hopefully) a Lunar Clubman SB arriving in the next 2 weeks :-) I have an AquaRoll and WasteMaster already, but I know I will be missing a lot of essentials, so what do people recommend that I need (or be good to have) to get going ? Not thinking of kitchen, bedding stuff, etc. but more about tools, chocks, levelling ramps, etc. All advice greatfully received. thanks Phil

    Best Suspension Setting to Tow

    I plan to use the pressures given for running the car fully loaded - it doesn’t seem to give pressures for towing, just normal load and full load.

    Best Suspension Setting to Tow

    Thanks everyone; I will try Sport when the van arrives and see how it goes
  10. I have a BMW X3 with variable damper control allowing the suspension to be set to Sport or Comfort mode. When I tow, I wonder if the stiffer setting (sport) is better, or won’t it matter? Can’t test it myself as I am waiting for my van to be delivered Appreciate people’s thoughts Phil
