    How much was your Navara if you don't mind me asking?

    And thanks Toscal for your L200 advice. Still making my mind up.

    Navara or L200?
    I'm looking at getting either a Navara or an L200. Anyone got any experience of either of them?

    I sent my ecb off to A&R and 48 hours after it arrived back on my doorstep all fixed. £61 plus the cost of sending it and its fixed. Beats buying a new one!

    Even on journeys of 200+ miles we only get 38 mpg or so.

    Alan - have you got the 2012 version? That's the one I've seen for sub £200. What are the awesome features?

    Gary,

    Are you still repairing these ECBs or should I try A&R? I have the 3 red lights denoting 'short to chassis'.

    I don't really know a lot about awnings but I had heard that the Isabella ones are great. We just want a light weight porch awning that's easy to put up for short periods. Aren't the Isabella ones a bit heavier and meant for use over longer periods?

    £200 budget for a porch awning. Suggestions?
    I've been looking at the Sunncamp ultima 390 plus and the Outdoor Revolution Compactalite pro 325. Both seem very similar. Anyone got any experience of either of them?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The wife works 12 miles away so she uses the Audi. I have a V reg Audi A4 that I've had since it was 2 years old that I use for my daily commute. It's got 155k miles on it but its going to die at some point.

    The fuel consumption on the A4 diesel is about 36 to the gallon. The wife drives it sensibly and we only get this mpg. Maybe because its Quattro. I wish we did get 55mpg though.

    Carver. I bought a new leisure battery to see if that sorts it but having read a few threads it would appear that the ecb may need a repair. I have the 3 flashing red lights which means a 'short to the chassis'. Other threads say this is a red herring and the ecb is shot. Thoughts?

    My journey to work is a 70 mile round trip so I don't want to put loads of miles on the Audi or drive a gas guzzler all that way. But if things were different then the Rexton looks great.

    You don't know anything about motor movers do you? The final glitche I have before the van is A1.

    Thanks so much guys for all your replies. I haven't towed the caravan yet so was a bit apprehensive about it but hearing from those of you who have similar VAG cars then I feel much more confident about using the Audi. I think we will stick with the Audi for towing the van and I will get a little deisel to get me to work.

    Have been to Go Outdoors today to get the final parts of our 'kit'. Waste aster and gas bottle bought and we are all set to go. Just need to sort my motor mover out and all will be peachy!

    Thanks again guys!

    Cheap tow car?
    Recently bought our first caravan (4 berth swift Fairway) and was hoping to tow it with our 57 plate Audi A4 2.0TDI Quattro S Line 170bhp. Beginning to wonder if it will be up to the job or whether it will kill it. Someone recommended a Ssang Yong Rexton 2.7TDI with the Mercedes engine. Can pick one up for about £3k with about 80k miles on. Seems like a bargain. Anyone got one? Or got an opinion on any of this?

    Any help is welcomed.
