  1. hi , we did go and look at the cars , the information is the same on the plate on the car I wonder if an older insignia would have a higher kerb weight cheers
  2. thats so helpful , there is not much kg wise to be taken to the car back to drawing board
  3. thank you , very helpful my thoughts are the car is going to have stuff in it to make sure its higher weight than the caravan, its a good excuse for me to eat more chocolate this will bring the percentage ratio down and that MTPL is based on a full caravan which if need be stuff can get transfered to the car. Making sure the car does not go over its max weight and the gross train weight is not exceeded
  4. well I have nil and OH was a HGV driver but 20 years ago so really nil too my understanding its not illegal to go over the 100% however what do the police go by , my findings bring me to the towing capacity of the car , gross train weight of both car and van thanks angela
  5. thanks all okay so using the NCC towcheck which I paid to get some reports 2014 Vauxhall Insignia Design Nav 2.0 CDTi 140 ecoFLEX Start/Stop and the madrid 1 Caravan MTPLM to Tow Car Kerb Weight Ratio (%) MTPLM 1596kg kerb weight 1538kg ratio 102.11% with a towing weight of 1700 kg 2014 Vauxhall Insignia SRi Nav 2.0 CDTi 163 ecoFLEX Start/Stop and the madrid 1 Caravan MTPLM 1596kg Tow Car Kerb Weight 1538kg ratio % 102.11% with a towing weight of 1600 kg
  6. hi folks we have , due to funds , mpg, road tax , etc, decided that the insignia is the car we are going to go with for the first tow car so its the ecoflex insignia 1.6 litre - 138 bhp towing capacity 1800 2.0 litre 138 bhp towing capacity better than 2.0- 161 bhp the gross train weights also appear to be higher in the 1.6 so we were going to get a 1.6 however will it pull okay its either a bailey madrid s1 1596 or s3 at 1496 thanks in advance for those who answer Angie
  7. hi no I want to know why a mardrid 2015 in the showroom we visited today was on the off side but the ones on youtube from caravan showrooms have it on the nearside same caravan same yeat
  8. May I ask you kind people to assist and help us in our confusion Today we went and looked at a 2015 unicorn madrid , the BBQ was on the off side hmm we came back to youtube when we came home to view our saved videos - yes this is what researching for a caravan does for you !!! and the 2015 madrids on youtube the BBQ point is on the near side help................................
  9. thanks so much that is really helpful we went to see the genoa and it was lovely however the front nearside locker had been sealer - or attempted to be sealed with a sealant gun stuff all round every edge. Why dont know but it fair put us off it we asked about warranty and were told everything but the tyres, as we were not taking the van we did not dig further. we have now moved to the Madrid and Seville. the search goes on , there is a dealer nearby with both but we do not like them just the interaction and reviews on line about them
  10. as far as I know that even if you are in the area, eg Forth valley is 2 you are meant to stay within your councils ie falkirk shouldnt go to stirling even although they are all forth valley
  11. am really confused now , but to be fair that does not take much. So if someone buys a Lunar will it have the lunar warranty and spares etc or if its not then ........ lunar old and lunar new confusing me from the confused
  12. thanks very much , are they still in business ?
  13. HI lunar people we were happy with layout and caravan brand when OH discovered lunar - its a 2015 hes looking at I understand that Lunar are no more therefore to get repairs and spares in future may be a challenge thoughts welcome
  14. thanks so much we are looking at a unicorn 2 but prefer the shower in 1 or 3 - like everything in life compromises must be made , as you say you dont spend that much time in them and if the site showers are okay we would use them cheers angie
