  1. VERY impressive ALDE! Makes me glad we have your fantastic heating!
  2. Yes check the website, I had an email from prima. Service it as soon as you can after this passes. Keep safe.
  3. Who and how are they going to monitor how much/far you go-be sensible isolate and carry on. As a teacher I am still working so doing Joe Wickes daily PE lesson online every day. It is making me ache! Plus one walk with the dog and I reckon I am sorted but am doing the spin bike in the garage at weekends. Missing the swimming at the gym but am pretty happy generally! Mind I am definitely drinking more!
  4. We tow with a new 2019 Nissan Navara; no issues re towing and you will find if you speak to your manufacturer that there is no an issue either-Lunar were the only exception as far as I am aware but since all of the chassis are the same there shouldn't really be a problem. Shock absorber hitches are not approved for use on modern vehicles -if the towbar is type approved it isn't legal and isn't necessary as far as I can see-and the mags reviewed the Sangyong and it did quite well. Our Nav tows nigh on 2000kg of Bucanneer as if it were not there and the suspension settles really nicely and we averaged 31mpg on a trip to Sutton on Sea just before the virus hit! If you drive and like it don't think it will disappoint as a towcar. We are accepted on any sites- we have tried both clubs and Morris Leisure but some do stipulate no signwriting which we don't have-and ignore the rubbish about being tail light-yes with an empty load bed it can need the 4wd on a muddy field (when walking the dog), but day in day out it is the best all rounder we've ever had and we've had a few cars! And of course with a caravan on rwd traction is amazing! In spite of 190bhp no wheel spin.
  5. I'm not watching any more of these-so much fake news about you just don't know what to believe! Or is it me!?
  6. I have to say (and Andy I do agree that parts prices are rediculous but) that given the price of oem parts for cars and any bits we've needed for caravans that i wasn't surprised at the price and didn't think it too bad. But as above you'd think these parts could be sourced direct or bought from a breakers perhaps.
  7. Other than proper surgical masks they don't work anyway so I shouldn't bother! And they can't get enough for the NHS anyway.
  8. I had read that Bailey had said this advice was out of date and Carnauba was ok to use. Contrary to your view Carnauba waxes are usually just that ie a coating unlike polishes which are mildly abrasive and take a tiny layer of old paint off eg Autoglym Super resin polish. So warm the carnauba if you have to but cannot for the life of me see what this is all about!
  9. Surely the journey would become essential-a visit to a shop of course!!!
  10. I understand the gov have asked Amazon to help out! So there you go-you should be a gov advisor!!!!
  11. So pleased-so much total rubbish, scaremongering going on round all of this! Well done CT mods! Thank you!
  12. There is a long lead time on a magazine-it will have been finalised and put into production well before any of this really affected us. We love the mag-they certainly aren't all the same any way imo sorry.
  13. Watched a young couple of girls in a Corsa gently merge-into the side of a huge articulated lorry-he stopped for a word as it was clearly their fault but they just carried on regardless with nearside door dented and wing mirror flapping in the wind!Oblivious-drunk, drugged or uninsured may be?

    I really don't agree Ern; caravanning of the touring nature has really boomed under the Brexit doom and gloom as more people were cautious and took hols in the uk or closer to home; a couple of years ago caravan sales were at their peak and I am sure the current dip due to Brexit and this horrendous halt due to the terrible virus, will be temporary once restrictions are lifted. We have had a great deal of difficutly getting sites in school holiday times over the last couple of years,(touring) and I think there may well be a boom once this horrid period is over. Unless of course we have drastic taxes to pay for all the support the government is giving us.
  15. We had a brand new Bailey in 2017 and the only issue we had on collection was excessive sealant, all over the place which initially made me feel that at least it wouldn't leak-but caused a bit of consterantion when we couldn't get the awning through. Other than that it was wonderful on delivery and we had VERY few faults full stop-loved it! Our new van was from the same dealer-not a Bailey this time and seems similarly perfect-but the sealant application on this is nothing short of pure magic-beautifully done in every way. Maybe the dealer is doing a good PDI=certainly get a VERY comprehensive check off list of everything they have checked.
  16. I think we may take that with a pinch of salt-there is an awful lot of fake news and exaggeration around; they keep saying this drug or that is promising but there seems not consensus and the gossip about it then disappears. We will know more but it's taking some time!
  17. We really have our dream combo; Nisan Navara towing our Bucanneer Cruiser. We wouldn't change the Cruiser for anything-it really is a hotel on wheels and that underfloor heating-just superb. HOWEVER while the Nav is brilliant for us with having a very messy dog, However as things progress I would change this to the Tesla Model X but I'd want a bit more than the current approximate towing range of 100miles before that happened!Currently we'd probably go for the Range Rover Sport or Velar with the biggest petrol engine or the top of the range Rangey.
  18. Sorry but this situation requires an enforced lockdown; people just don't seem to be getting it!
  19. I really don't think after this weekend anyone should; we have a booking but will cancel even if they don't refund us after the government quite clearly stated-avoid unncecessary travel eg caravans and holiday homes.
  20. Our Bailey was well made and no issues with locker doors. I would say our Bucanneer is even better made though. The sealant on Bus is applied so beautifully. I spent hours cleaning it off our Pegasus.
  21. Hope we have Never checked nose weight either!
  22. Have to say the CMC have been excellent-we are booked to go away this weekend and they have said we can cancel without loss. Aiming to go thought!
  23. Really good they are prioritising the over 70s. Time to start being creative-visit the smaller shops/farm shops etc perhaps. I was visiting in hospital last night-interesting that the general comment was that suddenly A and E was a lot less busy-makes you realise how many people probably didn't ought to be going there in the first place!!!
  24. Having towed Pegasus Verona at 1450kg with a Dacia Duster 1.6(109bhp) petrol for over 30I miles in every type of condition ( overweight 1280kg so 113%) I can vouch for the op! yes we had emergencies and no the van never ever deviated from the line I wanted it to take. Average towing mpg 24mpg. We load the car not the Van and am fastidious about three erc. No atc on a verona either. To dispel another urban myth we now tow a Buccaneer with a Nissan Navara. There is no lack of rear grip when towing nor any tail light induced sway. Rock solid!
