  1. Ok thanks for the advice👍 I’ll stick with me doing the driving. Thanks again 👍
  2. We are hoping to go to France later on this year with the caravan I have the B&E entitlement but my wife doesn’t. Is she able to tow in France if I’m in the passenger seat and we have L plates on the car and caravan? Many thanks
  3. I’m always safe and considerate when cycling and so are a lot of the cyclists I come across. There may be a few cyclists who don’t follow the Highway Code but there is also a lot of drivers out there who don’t either. There is also a lot of drivers out there who are dangerous and will overtake on a bend into oncoming cars and then try and push you off the road as they have no where else to go. Drivers should give enough room to cyclists when overtaking cyclist have to contend with enough hazards pot holes in the roads debris near the kerb. It’s a lot safer for a cyclist to ride side by sid
  4. Has anyone used this to check the gas level in the refillable bottles? https://tinleytech.co.uk/shop/lpg-parts/electrical/level-senders-displays-and-switches/bluetooth-level-sender-for-gas-bottles/ or can anyone recommend anything else? thanks Damien
  5. First caravan at 19 me and my wife are now both 36 and still love caravanning with my 5 year daughter.
  6. I had an x type some years ago I had a detachable towbar and if anything was cut you couldn’t see it. The parking sensors worked as normal.
  7. That’s a shame I have always found them good especially with any warranty issues.
  8. Grantham caravans are very good if your prepared to travel.
  9. I don’t think all kids or families are like this it just seems that reading through this thread that all families and kids are not well behaved and show no respect to others.
  10. I have a 5 year old who doesn’t leave the caravan without us or stays around the caravan. I expect in the next few years she will want to play later on in the evening and I have no problem in the summer months when its light for her to play later. Especially if we are on site with friends and their children. I think 10pm is reasonable for the children to be back in the caravan it’s there holiday too you can expect them to be in bed like they are at school. I may also have a couple of bottles of beers while I’m on holiday that doesn’t mean I’m drunk I know what’s happening around me but I’m jus
  11. We have a Swift Sienna 6TD which is based on the Sprite 6TD the bunks are perfect I’m 6ft and have slept on the bottom bunk before. It would be idea for anyone smaller for a holiday.
  12. How did you pay for the caravan and did you pay any deposits on a credit card?
  13. It wasn’t as bad as I thought I did a full training the day before and that helped out With any bad habits. Test day was very straight forward and there was no nasty surprises. The instructor had taken me on the test routes and covered anything that would be completed. The car also had markings in the back when you needed to turn when completing the reverse.
  14. The caravan is only 12 months old and I noticed it during lockdown but I was unable to raise with the dealer as they were shut. I can’t think of anything we could have done to cause the damage in the sink. Nothing has been dropped and hot water is only used from the tap. I have inspected it again tonight and it has a crack on side and then another more a less the other side of the sink. The dealer has said the claim has been made with swift so fingers crossed it will be approved with no issues.
