Our new book project

Our new book project

It’s true. I have a book in the making. So far, I have written 16 chapters of various topics all relating to caravanning. It’s a natural extension from our YouTube channel and links many topics that we have covered together. It also provides extra information that cannot easily be contained on a video.   What is the book about? Well that’s where it gets a bit tricky. You see, I’m crowd funding this project and until the project is agreed and the publisher agrees with what I want to create and share, then it’s all a bit hush I’m afraid. But it relates to caravanning and will be great for...

The new Bailey Phoenix

The new Bailey Phoenix

The new Bailey Phoenix replaces the very popular entry level Bailey Pursuit range, but don’t be fooled, there is not a lot in this brand-new caravan that would say “Entry level” In fact the marketing team have re-invented the phrase “entry level” and coined the phrase “First Choice’. The look and feel is more in line with the Series 4 Unicorn, and as you look around the caravan you might see details that are borrowed from the Unicorn range. The exterior boasts a fresh clean look with high contrasting graphics on the polar white shell and the clean bright white finish is contrasted with the...

Vango Varkala Connect review

To be completely upfront with you, I’m not a fan of air awnings. We had a very expensive and bad experience with one a few years ago. Ultimately, the roof sagged, water pooled, the fabric stretched and ruined the awning. It was on that basis that we decided to purchase our rollaway awning. We loved it because it was easy and quick to put up, we could change the layout and configure inside / outside spaces. We loved it. Nothing could come close in its ability to be all things for all occasions. Vango asked us some time ago to become ambassadors and review their products. I knew that one day...

Selling the caravan

Selling the caravan

Yes, it’s true. We are selling our Lunar Clubman ES. I suppose it’s a decision we have been building up to for a while now. It’s a decision based on pure logic. If we incorporated emotion I’m sure we would stick with what we have because, the truth is, we love our caravan. He is a part of the family. With emotion aside, there are a few reasons why we feel now is the time to move on to another caravan. Our decision is based around a few key elements and these are summarised below: 1. We are a different family now. When we purchased the caravan, our requirements were for a family of 4. Since...

Top 5 caravanning apps for 2018

It wasn’t so long ago that I created a post detailing the apps I find really useful when out and about in the caravan.  As we all know, technology moves on at a fair old pace these days, so it was only fair that I revisited this topic and gave a list of my top 5 caravanning apps for 2018. Who knows, perhaps I will need to update this again next year. Instead of listing them here, I created a video on our YouTube channel, Links to all the apps are in the video description. But what do you think ? what apps do you use and do you think there is a vital application missing that would help and...

Easter break 2018

Easter break 2018

Easter is usually the time when Spring really starts to show its arrival in the countryside around us. We’ve had great times camping during the Easter break, the weather has always been slightly dubious, but generally it’s been bright, sunny and full of Spring time promise. Not this year. Nope, Easter was a washout. And for some that were away in the caravan, it was more than a wash out – snow was very much on the cards. For us however, we were treated to some wonderful days of constant rain. Camping at the Caravan & Motorhome club in Longleat we were joined by the Hardhams’ for 4 days...
