Lock ‘n’ Level

Lock ‘n’ Level

Some time ago I created a video showing the basics of levelling a caravan. It was, and still is well received. It did raise some questions from those who struggle with manoeuvring a caravan and those who have an ALKO Secure wheel lock. The idea of the wheel lock is that the alloy wheel on the caravan needs to be perfectly aligned to allow the ALKO secure plate to be positioned and locked in place. This is a challenge when on flat, level ground but, when attempting to level a caravan its almost impossible. This is where Lock ‘n’ Level really does work out well. The system can be...

Campsite Arrival Videos

One of the many questions I have when booking a campsite is “what are the access roads like ?” Many of the sites we want to visit are usually in rural locations which means unless we know the area well we actually have no idea what the access roads are like. Google Maps and Street view offer some help, but in many of the cases the camera cannot quite give full picture of the access roads, width or turning circles into the site, which in some cases is down a private road. Such an occasion was Three cliffs bay, where the Google Street View car, simply bypassed the narrow lane that was the only...

Tewkesbury & Friends

May day bank holiday saw us visit a site just on the outskirts of Tewkesbury. Croft Farm Water Park offers hard standing and grass pitches for touring and camping, seasonal and cabin accommodation all situated around a lake. The site contains a boathouse, that offer a wide array of water activities along with a gym, shop and small café area. We decided that this site would be a great place to visit with our closest friends and have a long weekend together. We arrived on the Friday and despite some confusion about the one way system, how to get the caravan from one side of the lake to the...

Nextbase 412GW Dash Cam.

If you spend any time on YouTube you will see a whole section of clips dedicated to Dash cam footage. You will be amazed at the collisions, close calls and random events that unfold right in front of your very eyes. I too have experienced close calls and a variety of random events while driving, but the level of badly behaved drivers right in front of me has escalated since I have been towing a caravan. A few years ago I did install a dash cam for this exact reason, and while the camera was good, it didn’t last. In fact when I did need the footage, I couldn’t get anything from the memory...

Our announcement

I’m delighted to announce that we are teaming up with Swindon Caravan Group to produce some excellent content in the coming months. As our YouTube channel grows we feel that some topics we want to cover need input from the industry and it makes sense that we team up with the dealership that we have a good connection with, after all, It was Swindon Caravans that we purchased our caravan from back in 2014. We found Swindon Caravans were fair, honest and above all extremely easy to deal with when we purchased our caravan. The ethos of non-pushy yet a professional and helpful service is a...

Caravan & Motorhome Wi-Fi

Apart from shelter, warmth food & water possibly next most important thing to have while camping is Wi-Fi. Well, maybe not, but if you are a teenager these days the Wi-Fi is pretty high up the priorities list. Getting a connection to the digital world can be summed up as problematic at best and impossible at worst when on site. I have shared our method of getting on-line in the video at the bottom of this post and in it I show what devices we use to get on line. We use a HooToo Trip Mate Titan as our primary connection (Here is our original review of the device), we do this to take...
