  1. I need a new towcar and want an estate car for economy and I have come to realise it has to be either 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive. This is partly for the caravan, but mostly for messing around in boats and using often slippery slipways for launching boats! (If you want to see how badly this can go wrong there are no end of submerged cars and trailers on Youtube!) I just don't like SUV's, so this restricts me to estate cars, but the plus sides here are good economy and having a sensible sized car for the roads in the town where I live. Also. .. I have two sons of six foot plus, so a roomy back seat is essential. (Had an Avensis Estate for the last few years and that has been great for legroom, just not enough friction when towing!) Personally I'm after something 2010-2012 in terms of age, but also aware that as far as I can see there are very few threads like this, so any help and suggestions appreciated please?
  2. Hi all, Just thinking about starting up in the caravan world. Currently have a 2 Ltr petrol Mondeo on a 10 plate with approx 46,000 on the clock. Do quite a lot of mileage for work, approx 400 miles a month. Am considering changing the car anyhow so want to get one that can be a good tow car. Will probably go diesel automatic but not sure whether to go 4x4 or just a strong hatchback or estate. I can see positives In a 4x4 as it would give me more choice in van and would also be good in winter months but can also see fuel economy is often a lot less and things like tyres and exhausts and even brake pads etc are a lot more on 4x4s as I am doing a fair daily mileage. In helping me with advice it is fair to say I will probably look for a mid size 2 or 4 berth van to start off with but also like the look of a twin axle with fixed twin beds long term if I get on with caravaning. I am also confused on how old to go car wise as I used to have a 55 plate focus that was costing a fortune in repairs. I need it reliable for work as my job involves going from site to site on a daily basis. Any advice is welcomed. I am not asking people to make the decision for me but know people will have more experience that I currently do. Makes and models especially welcomed as well as general advice. When driving solo I do like a bit of power under my foot !! Thanks in advance Steven
  3. Ok, so we like to take bikes on our weekends away, and we tow our beloved caravan. Our son is of an age he likes to have his bike around, and we like to bike with him. .....so presently we take 3 bikes on the roof of our current Insignia estate car on most caravanning weekends. Climbing up to mount bikes on the estate is easy enough But here's the issue, we're considering changing to a volvo xc70, but there's probably more xc60's around in the configuration we want (manual, diesel, 160 or 180bhp, and a particular colour my wife prefers. at a price we can afford), and we're usually in the market for used cars. Although it's easier to get bikes on top of an XC70 as it's just an estate, I wonder if any of our forum friends regularly take bikes on top of an xc60 (or similar sized SUV)- and if so, what do you think ? Is it easy enough mounting the bikes on the XC60's roof?? Am I missing a trick that would make it just as easy and hence bring XC60's into the short-list? How do YOU go about getting bikes on top of your SUV? Advice welcome thanks.
