  1. My centres are 800mm so I had to cut off 275mm . It fits fine
  2. Just back from a 5 night stay, had a fully serviced pitch on the upper tier. Great views and quite, we did not use any of the facilities on site because of the virus. Pitch size very good easy access, will use again .
  3. I am expecting delivery of my standard rack on Monday. When I was researching the rack and spoke to a supplier he recommended the standard version and cut it down to fit. The centre mounting measurement would be on the limit of the short version.
  4. I use a 2.2 jaguar, 200 hp diesel. Pulling no problem at times you forget the caravan is behind you. I have a demountable towbar which is good when you are not towing ; you take it off. The downside is you can't have the plate on the towbar to act as a barrier when reversing, and because the car is low it can be a little troublesum to attach the caravan to when you are on upward slope. As a car it's great. Has anyone any experience of towing in sports mode, I shall give it a try tomorrow when we are off to Scotland.

  6. My car Jaguar XF automatic is good, but when you also have an electric handbrake that is an issue when reversing up to the van. If you apply the brake and then decided to move a little closer the sudden release can end up knocking the van
  7. Well thanks for your replies, I've reach a decision of buying the Maybold based upon the following. At a price of 4 times that of the Maybold, I can replace the cover as and when necessary. Say I get a life of 4 years out the Maybold I can have a 16 year use for the same cost.
  8. Thanks for that Thanks for that any suggestions on companies supplying tailored fitting please
  9. Just back from chainbridge , a great little site. The toilet block was locked off as you would expect. In the adjacent field the contractors are setting up site to carryout the refurbishment of the bridge. The noise did not bother us as we are up and out people during the day. We had a nice welcome when we arrived and there is a pub doing takeaways 5 mins in the car. If we get the chance we may be back this year. It is so handy to access from the A1
  10. Just upgraded to a better caravan and I would like to cover it over during the approaching winter. Has anyone out there had good and bad experiences of quality? I was considering a Maypole cover. Any experiences would be welcome.
  11. Anyone tried sugar soap, I'm going to clean my roof this week and try sugar soap followed by a wash down with water with a polish diluted in the water.
  12. My 2019 Swift comes with Thule mounting brackets fitted, the problem is there appears to be a shortage of the Elite racks available. I have been waiting now some six weeks and the suppliers says it could be another 3 weeks before they receive a supply from Thule.
