YouTube Live

Over the past few weeks we have been hosting “Monday Night Live” on our YouTube channel. The series of Live broadcasts have been received well. In our 1st live video we discussed the up and coming NEC Motorhome show and generally got to grips with the Live video concept. It was a nerve racking time but I think we did okay. Our 2nd Monday night live was more structured and we had learnt some lessons from the 1st one with reading comments and what to do when broadcasting. It did also teach us the lesson of troll management, as this episode was hit by a lot of unsavoury types for some reason....

Zebra Pot Chilli

You may have noticed that we always forget the zebra pot containing our chilli for the 1st night’s dinner in our holiday vlogs. It’s a running joke in our house, but we’ve only forgotten it twice. Maybe three times, um – actually four? Anyway, back to the plot. I do get asked a lot what is our recipe. So, here is our Zebra Chilli. No, it doesn’t contain zebra,  it’s in relation to the pot we use.   Ingredients – 400g of Minced Beef – 2 Onions – 2 Clove garlic – crushed – 1 tin Chopped tomatoes – 1 tin Red Kidney beans – 1 tin Baked Beans –...

If anyone had said to me back in January 2016, “Dan, your family will have 10,000 subscribers on a YouTube channel next year that is focused towards the UK caravanning scene” I would have laughed at them from a great distance. But here is the reality: We do and we have. A thank you from me just doesn’t seem to cut this immense milestone, so the only fitting way to celebrate and mark this occasion to to hold a give away. Up for grabs are 10 prizes from brands and companies we have worked with over the past couple of years. For a full list of the prizes and more details about the competition,...

Caravan Cleaning with Mellerud

Cleaning the caravan. You either love it or hate it. For me it’s a great time to unwind, care for the caravan and get it ready for the next adventure. In general, I find it quite cathartic. One thing I do not enjoy however is those pesky black streaks. They are every caravanners worst nightmare. The black streaks are formed from the rubber seals around windows, roof lights and other seals around the exterior of the caravan. As sunlight degrades the very top layer of rubber (exactly what its supposed to do, otherwise it will crack and perish) it creates a loose layer of material that can be...

Vango Awning furniture

Its always nice to have a sneaky peak into someone else’s caravan. Just to see what accessories are in use, how the caravan is laid out and how the space is utilised. The awning is one such area where given a blank canvas many have different needs and requirements for this use of space. Broadly speaking everyone has a similar set of requirements from an awning. A place to store things, an intermediate “shoes off” zone and quite common is an extra room for relaxing, eating and perhaps sleeping. Personal choice and lifestyle really dictates what an awning should or could be used for. Our set...
