    Go outdoors sell wooden poles with metal spikes and a ring at the top - just buy those and leave your original poles at home

    Your browsing history is recorded - simples
    My wife and I are researching our family trees.
    For example: Durham, Cornwall and Malham. Now as I used Google looking for hotels in those areas they now pop up as 'hints' on my Facebook page.
    Looking for a car is just the same

    Electric trains - great idea but the chart shows electricity as the biggest culprit

    What happens if you eat out? When we were at Morfa we had breakfast at the airfield and ate in the club house in the evening sometimes, so no waste produced. Neither of us are tea drinkers and if the toilet block is close by the caravan and its occupants would not create any waste. So on an overnight stop would you deposit your KFC bucket on site or take it with you?

    Geoff,
    Buy an air printer - I got the wife one last year and it is connected into our wireless router. We can print from anywhere and it was under £70

    Maurice,
    Your medical solution is between your doctor, Mary and yourself.
    Remember how worried you was when Mary was due to retire. I posted a heartfelt reply, well someone agreed with me.
    Get it sorted and keep on posting.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers, as you will be in many t&t thoughts and prayers

    Surely someone has a bolted on tow ball?
    We have a bike rack that slots onto a plate similar too a stabilizer plate. Ours takes 3 adult bikes, well it does now - sold as a three bike carrier. Modified by a nice man and now carries three bikes with ease

    Many years ago we had a Volvo 245, which was very heavy and the caravan was under 1000kgs. It was a lightweight 6 berth and I experienced similar problems when hgv's or coaches passed. We always travelled with friends and always had one eye in the mirror for large vehicles approaching and moved to the left. It reduced the drag a little.
    We looked at the same outfit that you currently have and I would not expect any problems if the caravan and car was loaded correctly. As Bob says most outfits are overloaded. Load it up and family in the car and get it weighed. Your car will have a maximum gross weight and a gross train weight, if you are exceeding these then that could be your problem.
