  • BMW X3 2ltr, Automatic

    Hi Stewart, I have been towing a 2012 Bailey Unicorn Seville for the past 3 years with an X3 2L automatic. I have found it an excellent tow car, with plenty of power under all circumstances. By trial and error, I found that the optimum nose weight was 92Kg. Now I have changed...

  • Hobby Caravans

    I am thinking about swapping the MH for a caravan and after looking at the many layouts I have decided that the Hobby prestige 720 is the one that works the best. My only issue now is that I have seen quite a few sites that don't allow twin axle caravans/door on opposite side. Is this still...

  • Newbie question about nose...

    Well Jayne, the dealer is telling you the opposite of what the Caravan Club recommends, which is that a minimum of 7% of the van's actual weight should fall onto the hitch. The advent of stabilisers, both mechanical and electronic, has enabled that figure to be reduced to, I think, about 5%. ...

  • Best awning groundsheet...

    We've just bought a second hand awning for our new (to us) van, but it doesn't come with a groundsheet. I've managed to source what looks like a suitably-sized groundsheet and we already have a tent carpet that will fit (ish). I'm a bit concerned that the groundsheet could be damaged by stones on...

  • awning rail

    Unfortunately it is not the awning rail height you will need to know. What you need is the total length of the awning rail around the van, plus the distance from the bottom of the rail to the ground at each end. This total length in centimeters will allow you to see what is the correct size of...

  • Towing Weights

    A little confusion here between a simple recommendation for inexperienced drivers and the max weight the vehicle can pull from a standing start on a 1 in 10 slope. The former has regard to caravan stability at legal speeds and the ability to stop on a downhill gradient. The latter makes no...
