I don’t think any caravan designer has ever stayed one single night in a caravan 😯

 

John

The design director at Elddis when they were owned by the Constantine Group did and his model range of choice was the Avante range.

Any caravan that washed itself.

Grand Cherokee SRT with either an Adria or German made van with a proper width bed 5ft wide not the UK rubbish 4ft 3 or 5.

This is my biggest gripe with UK vans, and longer front seating.

The Jeep is fast big and bold, not what a caravanner is looking for.

A Porsche or SQ7 would be the sensible choice.

 

Not in the right area but I wonder what will happen to the market this year, Discounts on vans or even worse cease trading.

I would like a new Adria but wife doesn't like colour scheme inside to white, compared to our Bessacarr.

I’m quite happy with what I have. The Ssangyong has proved to be every bit as good as we’d hoped and we already have our dream caravan. EP self levelling would be nice  though and an upgrade to the powrtouch, not AWD, just a little brisker.

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.

When I looked at buying a new Grand Cherokee SRT a few years ago I found you can't get a towbar because of their exhaust system .

That's interesting as we've owned two Grand Cherokees, a 4ltr straight 6 and a 4.7ltr V8, both converted to LPG running, and both used for towing, although that was a few years ago, so maybe the exhaust system takes a different path below the vehicle on the later models.

I love our current caravan and really would struggle to know what to change it for? However if I had the money I would add self levelling, a dishwasher and a self inflating, pegging awning that puts itself on and off the awning rail.

 

As far as a tow car either a Diesel V8 Range Rover Autobiography or a Porsche Cayenne S 4.2 V8 diesel.

Yes didn't it run two pipes out the middle, Can't remember if the latest is capable of having a towbar, but seeing a clip on pistonheads going up the runway (that's nice)  wouldn't want a caravan on the though.

I wonder how a vehicle like that would corner at speeds greater than our max speed limit.

I did try a summit 64 plate but couldn't afford that and wanting to change the caravan as well. Wife didn't like the pax side felt she had to keep her legs to the side, seat to close to the tunnel, did you find that?

Have now bought a old Merc GL

Something over 3500kg and one of the larger Adria Alpina imports. Would be my retirement travels choice.

We're lucky and have ours: Volvo XC90  followed very closely y a Buccaneer Clipper. 

Only wish (wishful thinking more like) would be a better payload for the van, though I guess that's everybody's wish.

A 2019 Swift Challenger 635 with Alde heating.  We have the same model but a 2018 Sprite version and the only gripe is the white worktops and poor blown heating distribution.  Those minor grumbles wouldn't be there on the Swift version!

 

Car wise I love our current Volvo as it's extremely comfortable and heavy but if money were no object I've always fancied one of the Overfinch Range Rovers.

Lucky enough to be half way towards a fairly dreamy outfit. Got the Porsche Cayenne S diesel and have a Knaus Starclass 695 stuck at the dealership awaiting collection once this Corona crisis is resolved.

Very frustrated in not being able to enjoy it and having to cancel the month long tour of Europe we had meticulously planned for this summer. Still we are healthy and surviving the enforced isolation reasonably well so things could be a lot worse. 

Stay safe everyone.
