Portable Wind Turbine Survey




I am currently a final year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Bath and I am in the process of developing a DIY portable wind turbine made from your old washing machine.

The Phoenix project came about as a result of the circular economy drive and focuses on reuse rather than recycle. I am trying to collect data from potential users in order to help formulate the final specifications for the product, the link to the survey I have prepared in order to help me collate this information can be found below:

I will be extremely grateful for any responses as the more people respond, the better I can understand the potential users of the product and therefore the better I can develop the product to meet these users needs.

    • Sizing an awning
      By tangotonyb · Posted
      OK thanks - I'll try that and see if it's anywhere near the 1050cm I believe it to be based on the caravan size (assuming that THAT's correct lol).

      Quite right, the beading length is not the one dictating the size.  The "A" dimension is from the ground back to the ground on the opposite side. As the awning's sides themselves don't quite  touch the ground, but stand about 5 cm above it, I would measure it along the van face edge as follows. From the lowest corner of the LH side panel right round along the beading to the lowest corner of the RH side panel,. Then to this add 10 cm for the "ground standoff" 5 cm each side to get the "A" size.   [Practically It could be easier to measure to a centre seam if that is a feature of the awning, and double that plus adding on that 10 cm.]

    • Have your say in Caravan and Motorhome Owner Satisfaction surveys
      By markf

      The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines to support the industry-leading annual Caravan and Motorhome Owner Satisfaction surveys.

      They welcome feedback from anyone who has bought, owned and toured in a new or used caravan or motorhome since 1 January 2013. The surveys are now sponsored by Club Care Insurance, the insurance provider to The Camping and Caravanning Club.

      Club members and other caravan and motorhome enthusiasts are invited to complete the 2017 surveys, with the results announced in January 2017, ready to help campers plan for the season ahead. Both surveys close on 16 October 2016.

      The results will also be published in full in the March 2017 issue of Practical Caravan and April 2017 issue of Practical Motorhome, in the Club’s own February magazine and online at each of the three partners’ websites.

      The surveys are long established and their results are highly regarded by caravanners, motorcaravanners, dealers and manufacturers.

      The Motorhome Owner Satisfaction Survey was launched in 2004, and the Caravan version followed in 2012. Over the years, tens of thousands of caravan and motorhome owners have reported in depth on their experiences of buying, owning and using their outfit.

      The results are essential reading for anyone considering buying a caravan or motorhome, new or used, whether from a dealer or private sale. The information and league tables of the best performing brands and dealers will be made available to all. It also provides valuable data for caravan and motorhome manufacturers to make use of when planning and improving their own products. 

      Robert Louden MBE, the Club’s Director General, said: “The Club is delighted to join forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome for the 2017 Owner Satisfaction Surveys. The results will help holidaymakers buy smarter in future, and help manufacturers improve the quality and reliability of their products. Along with our existing Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey, they will add to the authoritative advice we’re able to provide members on all forms of camping.”

      Alastair Clements, Group editor of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome, said: “For more than a decade, the Owner Satisfaction Surveys have been helping consumers to buy better, and pushing up quality across the board. And its results can be trusted because they are based entirely on the opinions and experience of real caravanners and motorcaravanners, in the real world. We are delighted to join forces with The Camping and Caravanning Club to make these awards the best in the business.”

      Nigel Coppen, Client Director at Club Care Insurance, said: “We’re delighted to extend sponsorship of the Club’s Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey to caravans and motorhomes – the results will help people research their next purchase with confidence, and peace of mind in the brands they choose.

      “We at Club Care are passionate about providing campers with peace of mind when they’re relaxing on holiday, and that’s why Club Care Insurance products are designed by tent, caravan and motorhome enthusiasts for like-minded people.”
