    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

  1. AL-KO Kober Limited – the leading manufacturer of premium components for the automotive, commercial and leisure industries – has launched the AL-KO Ranger, a new manoeuvring system for single-axle touring caravans up to 1,800kg. 
    Designed as a lower-cost, entry-level alternative to the company’s premium Mammut mover, the AL-KO Ranger features manual engagement onto the wheels when required and can be quickly disengaged once the caravan is in position. The motor units, situated in front of the axle to prevent damage from road debris, provide effortless and accurate manoeuvring control in even the narrowest of spaces, as well as on steep terrains up to 18% and for getting over obstacles up to two centimetres in height. The unit’s soft start and soft stop technology also provides enhanced, controlled and precise bump-free manoeuvring.
    Commenting for AL-KO Kober, a spokesman says: “The new AL-KO Ranger motor-mover is an attractively-priced alternative for those people who want the combination of the trusted AL-KO brand name with a cost-effective price point, coupled with the benefit of easier manoeuvring of their caravan. Thanks to its easy-to-operate remote control, the mover provides millimetre-precise accuracy and completely effortless manoeuvrability. With the ability to complete a 360-degree rotation of single-axle touring caravans on the spot, the AL-KO Ranger puts the caravan in the right place, whether at home or on site.”
    The AL-KO Ranger’s mechanics – including its aluminium rollers and motor units – are protected within a plastic housing mounted via a clamp mechanism to the underside of the caravan’s chassis. The electronics can be installed inside one of the caravan’s storage spaces; and an LED display on the controller and push-button remote control alerts users to various working limits of the motor mover.
    Like AL-KO Mammut, the new Ranger is provided with a five-year warranty according to AL-KO Warranty Terms.
    The AL-KO Ranger mover can be retrofitted to most caravans, including non AL-KO chassis caravans, and can be purchased from most caravan dealers, mobile fitting companies and caravan accessory outlets.  
    Stocks of the motor-mover – which has a suggested retail price of £1,099.00 including installation – are available from caravan industry wholesaler, Leisure Plus, based in Hixon, Staffordshire.

  3. Had a good day yesterday, I managed to do all the jobs I wanted to do, which makes a change because normally the first job goes wrong and I spend all day trying to fixi it.


    Renewed the front light relfector
    Renewed the gas strut on the bed so now it stays up on its own again instead of dropping on my head
    Renewed the soap dish in the shower
    Repaired the fridge door shelf
    Repaired the front locker drawer base

    and the biggest job for me anyway was changing the rollers on the motormover.

    For those needing to replace the rollers, the end cap retaining bolts get corroded in, especially the bottom ones so spray them well with WD40 a few times. i snapped the bottom ones and rather than cut them off and drill out the bolts I ordered 2 new end cap from Powrtouch.

    But they are done now so happy days just need some good weather so we can try everything out :/
