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...

Brand ambassadors

We have a lot planned for 2018 and much of it we cannot discuss until it is confirmed. Some of it is in relation with working with some familiar brands that you have heard of, some of it is projects we have planned for later this year. It is a real shame we cannot tell you more, but today we are able to let you in on one secret. We are delighted to share that Vango have asked us to become brand ambassadors. As many of you are aware we love Vango, we have kitted out our awning with lots off their furniture and accessories already, and being Vango brand ambassadors suits us perfectly. Okay, so...
